I Feel So Loved!

This morning I woke up to....

MY FIRST BLOG AWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




A friend of mine that I met through 20sb, and have been able to get to know through her blog and Twitter presented me with The Sunshine Award!

You can find Kristi (aka Melbourne on my Mind) at her blog:

She's pretty freaking awesome. I love her blog, and she's traveling all the way from Australia to go to the 20sb Summit in Chicago in August. THAT'S dedication!

Thanks girl!

The rules for the Sunshine Award are as follows:

- Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.

- Tell us something about yourself.
- Nominate 10 other bloggers and
- let them know that you awarded them!

So, here we go. 

Some things about myself....

-I've been writing and telling stories pretty much my whole life

-The first story that I made up (that I can remember) was when I was 5. I was bored at church and made up a story about a giraffe. In my world giraffes have multi-colored spots, but you don't get them until you are older. The giraffe in my story was sad because he didn't have his colorful spots yet. But he got them in the end- so it was a happy story.

-I'm visiting a friend this weekend, which will be super fun!

-I'm going to be in another friends wedding in exactly 9 DAYS!!!!!!

The 10 Other Bloggers that I would like to nominate are...

- I Won't Grow Up!:  the friend I am visiting this weekend 
- BUMMER!: she has the best vlogs EVER!
- Life Told By Leslie: Leslie was in the play Faith County with me, she's on vacation now & has a guest blogger taking over for the moment, both are great writers! 
- Down the Rabbit Hole: one of my former roommates who is a good friend and has an awesome NEW blog! 
- How To Be Old And Single: my former theatre prof. who is AMAZING and we need to encourage her to blog more! 
- Adventures in the Mundane: a fellow youth ministry friend here in Missouri! You'll love her stories. 
- Wide Open Spaces: another college friend who JUST GRADUATED AND HAD A BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK!
-CheChe Says...: a beautiful sister in Christ who I have grown to LOVE through her blog!
-Resonance: a friend I've met through LoveDrop and she gave me some wonderful love and encouragement this week!
-My Grass is Greener OR Time Well Wasted OR Catching the Moon OR Lady of the House: a fellow Missouri blogger that I've met recently. She's still deciding which of these four titles for her blog she likes the best! :D

Congrats, friends! I hope you all feel loved like I did this morning.
