I woke this morning to find that I received The Versatile Blogger Award from Lady Chadwick. I have loved reading her blog since I found it. She shares so much about homeschooling, I especially love how she is so able to incorporate household tasks into learning experiences. I did however feel a little guilty about something though, and I publicly apologize to Lady Chadwick for not letting her know I was following her blog. I have fixed that situation.

The rules to accepting this award are as follows:

  • Thank and link back to whomever gave you the award. 
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Pass it along to 15 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
  • Leave your recipients a note telling them about the award.


Ok onto the 7 things about myself:

  1. I love blogging and even more I love reading the some hundreds of blogs that I follow. I may not always comment but rest assured if I am following you, I am reading.
  2. I feel very strong that my blog would not be what it is without all of you fantastic people who stop by and take a little time to just read my blog. I love your comments, pieces of advice, and inspiration I get from you. Thank you all for making my blog what it is.
  3. Ok for a few more personal things…..ummm what haven’t I shared…..My favorite color is pink….well, that is what my grandmother always told me my favorite color had to be. Everything she made or bought me was always pink, I hated it. Actually my favorite colors are mauve and hunter green.
  4. My favorite season is Autumn. I love the crispness in the air, the colors, and the harvest. Growing up on a farm Autumn always meant a lot of hard work, but it was always fun and full of learning experiences. Nothing like reaping from our endeavors.
  5. My mom always wanted me to go into nursing, I did work in the medical field and enjoyed it, but to be honest my passion was in teaching. I wanted to be a teacher, too bad my dad was head strong and didn’t believe that a girl had any business going to college.
  6. There are few possessions that I have that I couldn’t live without, but there are a few things that I cherish, my tea set that my dad bought for me, the two floral chairs my mom gave me, and the lamps that always lit the living room when I was a child.
  7. Friendships are very important to me. I pour myself into my friendships. I try to always be here for my friends, I may not know what to say or give any advice, but I always have an ear and a shoulder.

As I sat here this morning thinking of 15 bloggers who deserve this award, so many came to mind, but as I have spent some time I see that many have already received this award. With that said I am going to mention the blogs that I love to read and follow, if you have not received this award then please except it from me.

There are so many wonderful blogs I follow and love but here are some that I call my must reads and most versatile bloggers:

Mouse Learns Mouse Grows

Adventures of Mommydum

Almost Homeschoolers

Just Playin’ Around

Joyful Learner

Truly all the blogs I follow deserve this award! If you haven’t received it then take it, as I love all the blogs I follow!

Thank you again Lady Chadwick!

  1. Now I'm totally curious about Lady Chadwick.

    My Mom said I would look good in peach, so she would always dress me in it, and I don't like the color at all.

  2. Autumn is my favorite season too, especially in New England!
