This week, Lyle wasn’t the only one to receive a heart! Mine was in the form of this spiffy award – The Spreader of Love Award – which we are told by Tulip Mom is for bloggers “whose daily/weekly posts spread love, laughs, and insight to all of us”. For those of you who don’t know her, Tulip Mom is a lovely and talented blogger I have recently discovered, and I am enjoying getting to know her very much – and so should you! So, thank you, Tulip Mom, for sending me a heart of my very own; I am flattered and will display it proudly!
And now, what better way to kick off Valentine’s Day week than to pass this award along to a few others? This was challenging because most of the blogs I love best are of the “love spreading” variety and you all deserve this, but here’s my short list for today:
1. kristen, talented novelist, incredible mother, and friend extraordinaire at from here to there and back
2. kyra of the beautiful writing, brilliant son, and cute pigtails at This Mom
5. niksmom who shares all the joys of parenting the Nik the Wonder Boy at maternal instincts
6. jessica, who can go from a dazzling piece on civil rights to a scattalogical post that makes you want to burp out loud at work, all in the course of a single day, at Oh, the Joys
