My wonderful bloggy friend Alison at RDH Mom gave me a beautiful award that I will try to figure out how to post…along with the other awards I’ve received.

OK…now here is the small piece of my mind.
I heard some stuff around the blogosphere…stuff that I found kind of, well…high school-ish. This isn’t directed to anyone in particular so I hope this doesn’t offend.
Blogs are intended to be an online outlet. For connecting. For writing. To capture moments in time and share them. For ourselves mostly…but to share with each other…
We are Mommy and Women…and some Men…Bloggers. We are all adults. We have or are about to have…children. We have families…
This isn’t High School. This isn’t about becoming the Homecoming Queen. This is NOT a popularity contest. So play nice. K?
Thank you. All of you. Your support. Your emails. I love all of you. You’re fabulous. I’m so lucky to have met you. You have all become a big part of my life. And I want you to know how much I appreciated your response over the last couple of posts. I put myself in a dark-ish place. I opened up more than I expected to on here. And you overwhelmed me with your support. Now I know…truly know…I can go ahead and REALLY be me. Because I’m not always silly. And life isn’t always funny. But…I think it’s OK to bring it here…and you’ll still visit me and hang out…and drool!!
