This may be the very first award I have received that I will honestly say I don't deserve. My sweet friend and long lost sister Emmie Beckering nominated me. She is a super cool teenager and the more we blog the more we realize how much we have in common. I am convinced we would have been best friends in school or I would have been super jealous of her (not sure). I couldn't even figure out how to set up my blog without the help of the blog fairy (see sidebar), and I have copied all cool things like slideshows and music from my other blogger friends. This whole world of computers and blogging just baffles me, but it has been the biggest blessing as a stay home mom. I feel connected to my friends and most importantly my China travel mates. So instead of nominating 5 people, since all my travel mates have been nominated like 4 times already I am going to encourage anyone that has ever thought about adoption or knows someone who has to please take a look at all my travel mates blogs and see how wonderfully our lives have changed since bringing home our precious little girls ...

Thanks Emmie for making me feel special !!!!

5 kind words.:

Oh Gwen...I am so gettin teary eyed. Being able to all stay connected and in touch is totally a blessing!
I agree, we would be the best of friends if we were in school together. We are both so alike and totally click...I so wish we lived closer!! Emily is sure lucky to have a cool mom like you! :)

**And you do, indeed, deserve the award! Your blog is fun and creative and we all totally LOVE reading it!
