My first ever blog award! Yipee!!

Last week, Jenn at bridgetownbabymomma blessed my socks off by giving me my first ever blog award! I was totally surprised and to be honest it really came at the perfect time. I have been thinking a lot lately about not blogging anymore. I was starting to feel like my posts were just going off in to cyber land and no one was reading anymore. Is anyone out there?????

Receiving the award from Jenn not only made me realize that someone is reading, and that what I say does matter, but I also learned that even if only one person reads - I will still write.

I don't know much about blog awards - but from reading Jenn's post when she received hers, it looks like I am supposed to tell you 7 things about myself you might not know and I need to nominate a few other blogs. So here goes...

1. My son was born at a free standing birth center with an independent midwife. I had no drugs - and I loved every second of it!

2. After Isaac was born, my midwife trained me to be her assistant, and I spent the next year and a half delivering babies with her.

3. In 2009, I delivered my nephew at my sisters house with the help of my brother in law. Well, I guess my sister helped a little bit too!

4. If I could go back in time and start all over, I would have gone to school to be a baby doctor.

5. If you can't tell by now... I love everything that has to do with pregnancy, and childbirth.

6. When I graduated from High School, I went to college at Seattle Pacific University. I didn't last long - but sometimes wish I had finished it out.

7. I started working at The Gap when I was 15 years old. I worked there until I was 21. Who can pass up that discount!?!?

Now for my awards... Here are a couple of gals that I make sure and read every time they have something to say. I LOVE these women. These blogs make me laugh, cry, soar... check them out when you can!

  1. Oh, thank you, Jetta! I, too, wonder if anyone reads what I write! Like, you...this came at a good time. I was wondering if I was finished with this season.
    Love you!

  2. Thanks baby! This is too fun! I heart and respect Jenn @ bridgetown, too, and I'm so glad she acknowledged you. Woo hoo!

  3. Congrats on your blog award....I know exactly what you mean about not knowing where your posts go...but I also decided I will write even if no one does because it is so therapeutic to me...

    Anyway...thank you so much for thinking of me!!! I really appreciate it and your continued comments and support on mine.
    xo and Congrats again

  4. It was really neat getting to know you better in this post. Ya, I couldn't pass up the discounts from Gap either..What an amazing thing being a part of bringing children into the world!

  5. You deserve this award so much -- and I love you for thinking of me, too!! <3 you bunches, BFF!!!
