Thank You, Peggy!

When I started this blog last May, I had NO IDEA what I was doing. I didn’t know how to get readers that weren’t family members, I wasn’t sure if this was a mommy blog or a breast cancer blog, and I couldn’t find other bloggers that were like me. Clicking on the “next blog” at the top of Blogger didn’t help me; most of the blogs I found were in Portuguese or German. I read the well-known bloggers, like Dooce and Suburban Bliss, but they were no help. I don’t remember exactly how it all panned out, but I think I found abdpbt advertised Dooce and then…I discovered something big!
Anna hosts “fighting listlessness Monday” where she will link up bloggers who write a list. I started clicking, started reading, started commenting, and starting writing…and somewhere along the way, people started reading my blog! I felt like I had broken the code.

And now, Peggy from over at Stir Crazy in the Suburbs passed this award on to me, and I’m thrilled! Thank you, Peggy!

Seven things I love:

  1. Snuggling on the couch with both my girls, reading books together;
  2. Sitting on the patio with my hubby at our favorite bar, drinking Bass and shooting the breeze;
  3. Scrapbooking, although I haven’t done any new pages in ages;
  4. Hiking; Ed and I have done some great hiking in Yellowstone and the Smoky Mountains, among other places;
  5. Swimming in Lake Michigan (on the Michigan side!) on a hot summer day;
  6. Grilling…no pans to wash!
  7. My life with my family and friends by my side…I have so much to look forward to!

I had a hard time picking seven blogs…. I love reading so many of them! Here are seven bloggers I am passing this award on to; I have been readings some of these blogs for a while, and some are new to me.

  1. Stacey over at ArtSnark’s Artifacts
  2. Wendy’s Among Mad People
