My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

This is a test! This is only a test! Brought to you by your national blogging association!

Is there a national Blogging Association??
LOL
I made this award/button for all my "life loving" bloggy friends!
That includes (you) my newest bloggy friends!
I want to see if this "giving Awards to everyone" thing works. I want to see if people really take the award, post it on their site and then pass it along. Thanks for participating! You all know I tried it for the first time the other day. Check them out HERE and please have some of them as well. I haven't' seen anyone who took an Award yet so I don't know if it was a good idea???? The first time I saw it done that way, it felt funny to me to "take" the award even when it was being offered up, but now I understand and take it happily:):):):):):)


My new area rug I ordered is in the post below this!

I think it is a lovely gesture and a lovely award, too. I am still in the "I feel funny" group. Kind of like taking a piece of cake when no one is looking! lol!

I know, it does feel wierd but I did the same on my blog..just gave the award to all my beautiful readers! : ) They are to hard to pick a few and when I did, I always felt bad for not giving it to others! You know? So, I will take the FAB award and pass it on! Thanks Heidi!!!! xo

I can see why you get emotional when you see your grandson's face in your blog header - he is darling! And the photo itself is stunning! Did you take the photo?

Mechelle said...

Love the award. Don't know if I will get it posted this week. I am limited on time. Darn, life gets in the way of my fun. m

Jo said...

You know, every time I click on your blog and see little grandson's face, I find myself smiling. He is SOOOOOOOO cute! Omigosh! What a delightful little kid!

I clicked on the pictures of your new furniture, and you know what? Your chesterfield (sofa) is exactly, exactly, exactly (!!) like mine. Mine is a slightly different color. Too funny!

For some reason, I could not find the picture of the rug. *sigh*

I don't understand how to add the awards to my page. I am seriously computer challenged. My friend Ragan redid my page a while ago. I think they are really lovely and I do appreciate the awards. I think you are super smart to know how to create them! WAY TO GO!

Mechelle said...

Just read your question on my blog.

Pearls before swine refers to a quotation from the discourse on holiness, a section of Jesus Christ's Sermon on the Mount, implying that things should not be put in front of people who don't appreciate their value.

Hope that helps. m

It is a beautiful button you made! I feel funny about the whole award thing...it feels like a popularity contest to me. I guess I have residual mental scars from the whole high school clique thing! ;0)

The secret ornament swap is finished. The names have already been swapped and many of the ornaments have been mailed already. She does it every year, so keep your eyes out for next year!
