I'm back - and what a welcome!

Wow! We just pulled in today from our family vacation (which was FAR LONGER than the 12 hours we anticipated - but more on that later). Once I got the third load of laundry going (and I reckoned my rear end might be able to take sitting a moment again!) I was shocked to find a full email box with lots of nice notes about the Blogs of Beauty Awards!

My, my, my, I leave for a week and you all go nuts on me!

Thank you so much for thinking of me. Since I am such a newcomer to the blog world, I am very honored -- and pretty much floored. Seriously, I was quite certain I scared a few of you off with my last post.

I recognized some of the nominees, but I am looking forward to spending the next few days getting to meet some folks new to me. The list is really amazing. It warms my heart to know how many ladies are out there being a blessing to others.

Final voting closes on Monday, July 17 at 8:00 p.m. This is going to be fun!

But for now - back to laundry!

I have never even heard of this award before. How did you get it? Is it for your amazing looking blog? That is too awesome!

I can't wait to hear stories about the vacation. Bring it on!!

Katherine, I found your blog while searching through the finalists for the different awards. I noticed that you're from the DFW area, and I was wondering if you're planning on meeting the other ladies who are gathering for the blogging get together this fall?

I'm from DFW, too, and am wondering if there's any chance you go to Fellowship Church? You look a little familiar to me!

To Sarah - Yes! I'm planning on going to the DFW bloggers whatever-it-is we are doing in October. I don't attend Fellowship Church, although we've used quite a bit of Ed Young's stuff in teaching our newlywed class. Love it. Hope to meet you soon (couldn't find an email on your site)!
