Can You Feel the Love?

I am pleased to announce that I am the recipient of some sweet blog love! Thank you!

My buddy Annie has awarded me these two blog awards. Annie and I became acquainted on an online forum for stay-at-home-moms. Annie isn’t on that forum anymore, but I feel so blessed to have been able to stay in touch with her and form a friendship online with someone I’ve yet to meet (oh, how 21st century!). Ironically enough, Annie and I live within a modest driving distance of each other but still haven’t met. Someday, when the stars align–and our kiddies cooperate–we’re going to have to meet up for tea and girl-talk.

So, now it falls on me to share the love with some of the other bloggers who move me, make me laugh, and just brighten my day!

Lynn at Free to Eat. She is a food (and other life stuff) blogger like me. She’s got a musical family, also like me. What I love about her blog is that Lynn’s wonderful spirit really comes through in what she writes and creates in her kitchen. One day Lynn’s family and mine are going to get together for a little flamenco and Navar jam session!

Carmen of Mom to the Screaming Masses and The Elff Diet. Carmen’s got a gaggle of children, and is still sane enough to put together a coherent thought. Oh, and she’s lost over seventy pounds and is sharing her wealth of knowledge with the entire world. Go girl!

Ali at Divine Domesticity. She’s a fantastic cook. Her food is not gfcf, but her creations really motivate me to experiment in my own kitchen. She just gave birth to an adorable baby girl, and is revealing all the stuff about first time motherhood that nobody bothers to tell you about before your kid is born.

Kelly at Mocha Momma. She works as a dean at a high school (which should qualify her for sainthood or something). Kelly’s got a razor-sharp wit, and I just love, love, love her blog.

Attila the Mom at Cheaper Than Therapy. ATM is hilarious, smart, and so REAL. Her posts are funny, touching, poignant, and sometimes snarky. I’ve adopted some of her Attila-isms in my daily vernacular (ex. Richard Cranium, Asshat of the Week, etc), which is a testament to how much I enjoy her writing.

Ooh, I feel all warm and fuzzy!

    While I don’t agree with the GF/CF diet, I do think it is essential to connect with our children and with other moms.
    Good luck with that manuscript!

    Hi, Roxan! Thanks for stopping by. It’s great to meet you.

    Annie, I am sooo with you there! I LOVE coffee, though my doctor has told me to easy up on the caffeine (seems I’m naturally caffeinated, LOL!). Maybe I’ll be daring and attempt to make some scones to go with that coffee?

    THANK YOU! I read this and just stopped and said…ah…I love FLAMENCO MOM…I believe we will meet someday too and that thought makes me feel so good. LOVE YA…thanks for making my day!

    Well I hope your attempt at scones are way better than any I have made to date here! I did manage a mean birthday cake last weekend and all our Irish guests were squealing with excitement that it tasted ‘just like home’

  5. Attila The Mom

    Good grief, I’ve been so out of the loop and just saw this.

    Thanks so much for your very kind words! You’re just awesome!
