with thanks (and blogs I enjoy) Bethany was probably my first bloggy friend. Somehow she found my blog when I first started blogging and left TONS of encouraging comments. She was instrumental in me finding my voice as a blogger. I owe her tons and tons. She has an awesome blog full of great pictures of her beautiful children. She recently said some really sweet things about me and gave me this: A while back someone commented on my blog that I should check out Jimmie's blog. So, I clickty-clicked and found a new bloggy friend (Thanks to whoever of you suggested that). Jimmie is fun and has a great blog!! She writes about life in China and homeschooling too. This past week she has been blogging all about her family's ultimate field trip to Xian, land of the famous Terracotta Warriors. She also recently said some really sweet things about me and gave me this: Then this morning, I woke up to find a very "new-to-me" blogger (read: I only found her last night) also had left me the Rocking Girl Blogger Award!!

It's my people-pleasing perfectionism at it's height. :) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Nevertheless, here are five bloggers that have been encouraging to me in the past few months. . . . if you are listed here, please (a) choose which if either award you would like to receive (or hey you could even take both) and (b) feel free to ignore the need to pass it on if you already got it before or are like me and find it difficult. Leslie @ Lux Venit Leslie is about the same age as me but living a totally different life, and yet I feel a "kindred spirit" with her and totally admire her.

I enjoy visiting her blog and appreciate our budding bloggy friendship. I'm glad I stumbled upon her blog a few months ago. Blair @ Blair's Scribblings Blair is another one of my first bloggy friends. She has been...
