My Sister-in-Law, Amber, nominated my blog for an “I Love Your Blog Award.” Thanks, Amber! That is really nice!
Now, as a recipient of this great award, I am supposed to nominate 7 of my favorite blogs to also receive it. Wow–I read a lot of blogs, so narrowing it down to 7 is kind of hard! So, I looked through my bookmarks and picked out the ones that I visit most often and really enjoy. Here they are (in no particular order):
Scraps ‘N Snaps is my Sister-In-Law Amber’s blog. I enjoy reading it and keeping up with my wonderful nephew, Levi! It’s kind of strange–we both live in the same town, but it seems like we keep up with each other’s news through our blogs! Anyway, Amber is a sweetie, and her blog is very nice.
Finishing Our Family From China is my friend Shelley’s blog. I met this wonderful family when we travelled to China to adopt Kara. They were part of our travel group and adopted their beautiful daughter Claire from the same province. They were very supportive friends when we needed them, and I love them dearly. They are now in the process of adopting a little boy from China, and I can’t wait to see him in their arms! Their daughter also has a blog called Ready or Not, Here He Comes! It will be neat to read her blog as they adopt her little brother!
Shirley’s Adventure to Grace Elyse is another favorite! Terrye and I have been internet buddies for quite awhile, and I enjoy seeing her wonderful pictures of her daughter who is adopted from China. Terrye is also a Grandma of some precious kids, so it’s neat to see them playing with their Aunt Grace. Just a note about this blog: be ready for some smiles! Little Grace has the cutest expressions, and Terrye knows how to use those expressions to put together cute stories about her antics!
Journey to Therese is a wonderful blog of a growing family. I began reading this blog quite some time ago when Adele’s husband travelled to China to adopt their daughter, Therese. Since then, they have had another biological baby, and are expecting again! They are really a beautiful family. I enjoy seeing pictures of Therese. She is one of the beautiful girls that we considered when we were applying for special needs kids, and it is so wonderful to be able to see her grow up in a loving home.
Beautiful Feet on the Mountains is a wonderful blog written by a lady whose family lives in China. They have a lovely daughter, and I just really enjoy reading this blog. I have never had any contact with the author–maybe I should. Anyway, she has beautiful pictures of China in her blog, and it makes me miss that great country so much! She also has funny entries about the strange English names that some of the Chinese people choose.
Living with a Child and Adopting a Second Child is my friend Heather’s blog. I met her over the internet, and I feel like I really know her. She and her husband have a wonderful little boy adopted from China, and they are in the process of adopting a beautiful girl from China. I can’t wait for them to bring this sweet girl home–she is just lovely!
Mighty Oak Country School is a newly-discovered treasure for me! I met the author, Violin Mom, through the Homeschool Memoirs Meme. This family has two adopted children whom they homeschool. They are very involved with Suzuki violin lessons, and their kids play their violins beautifully! When I first started reading this blog, I could hardly believe how much this Mom and I have in common. We are becoming quick internet friends.
There you have it: my list of the newest recipients of the “I Love Your Blog” Awards. Please check them out. These are all wonderful people that I know that you will enjoy getting to know!
