A Silly Kitty And Some Blog Love

The other night, we came downstairs to discover this:
And as soon as I took the first picture she decided to turn on the charm.
What a character!
In other news I have been given my first blog award! My friend Rosemarie over at Sweet Home Days has selected my blog to reiceve a

The Liebster Blog Award started (sometime in the recent past) in Germany to encourage traffic to hidden gems of blogs with 300 followers or less. So it is an award you receive, but also an award you give (share the love kinda thing). If you receive a Liebster Blog Award you are asked to choose 3-5 other bloggers and link back to the blogger that gave you the award. Thank you, Rosemarie for viewing my blog as a hidden gem! It has been a joy getting to know you through your blog and I look forward to the day when we can get together in person!

So, without further adieu my choices are:

Jess at Teachable Moments. Jess and I clicked from the very first moment she commented on my blog and I started reading hers. Oh, how I wish we lived closer so that we could get together. Getting to know her had been delightful and her blog is such an inspiration to me! I have truly appreciated Jess' knowledge and wisdom on life with two daughers as well as about unschooling!

Jannine at A Jar Full of Kitty Beans. Jannine and I have been friends for seventeen years (Wow! Can you believe that, J?)! We met in high school and have been friends ever since. Over a shared love of the music department and a realization that we share the same birthday (year and all) a friendship started and endures to this day. She is the yin to my yang (perfect that we happen to be Gemini's) and I am happy to get to share the adventures of motherhood with her!

Heather at Outnumbered! Heather and I go way back. We used to work with each other and from the moment we first met it was as if we had been friends forever! I am grateful for things like our blogs and Facebook so that we have been able to keep in touch with each other over the years. It helps to make the distance feel less than it really is!

My new friend Ruthy at Sweet Melodies of Life. The girls and I met Ruthy and her littles at co-op and clicked from that very first moment! What a blessing it has been to have Ruthy and the other wonderful mamas and their littles from co-op on this amazing homeschooling journey with us!


  1. Shel, Thank you so much! I am very honored. I will pass on the bloggy-love and give some thought to who inspires me to become a better person.

    Let's keep in mind scheduling a meet-up. Do you have my email address?

  2. Shel, Thank you !!! I am so thankful to have met you and your girls ! We look forward to seeing you and love to have you at the co-op on Fridays - I am eager to share our unschooling experiences as we go through them an I hope our friendship grows along with them !

  3. Hi Jess, You are very welcome! I truly am so grateful that our paths crossed! Yes, I do have your email and I'll send you a message ASAP! Missing you on Facebook (but totally understand)!

    Ruthy, it will surely be a great journey having you along for this wild (and fabulous) ride! :)
