RDH Mom, the creator of this award, says, "It is lovingly called the "Share the Magic Award". It is for sharing your magic in the world of blogging. I have met some incredible people since I have started blogging. I think of you as my friends and liken you a pen pal. I have met bloggers from all over the world, from as far away as Australia to as close as a nearby city.... We share our lives, our hopes, our dreams, and our most embarrassing moments. I don't know how I stumbled upon my first blog, or why I got the notion to start one of my own. I have unleashed a passion for writing that I never knew I had. Because of the encouragement you give me with your comments, I am nurturing this passion, and loving every minute of it. That is the Magic of Blogging.....and for that reason I am bestowing this award to my wonderful friends in the blogging world."
In the spirit of this award, I'd like to pass it on to my current favorite blogging mommas!
Rebecca of Proverbs Mom - I actually knew Rebecca IRL before she began blogging and am so glad she did! Since we live so far apart, it is nice to have our blogs to keep up with the fam.
Erica of We are the Webels - I don't even really remember how I found her blog, but when I got to meet her in real life shortly after Charlotte was born, I knew I had found a good friend. Erica encourages me in ways she doesn't even know and she always posts the most adorable pictures of her three kids.
Emily of DesignHER Momma - This is a momma who knows how to live! She recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of being a carnie and proved that moms can still have fun without resorting to playing tag and singing the clean-up song.
Rachel of Gone with the Winds - I think this was the first blog I ever read. Rachel has had her hands full lately with a new baby and renovating a new apartment, all while her husband is establishing a new business. She also inspires me in ways that she will never know.
Andrea of Momma in FlipFlops2 - While she doesn't share stories of her babies, she does share lots of giveaways from around the rest of the blogosphere. I always find something new that I want to win.
I could list several more, but 5 is plenty for now. Maybe someone day I'll be given another award and will be able to pass it on to the other great blogging mommas I know.
