Isn't it lovely ladies? Thank you so much to my friend Tonggu Momma for this fabulously fun award!
There are no rules for this award, so I will pass it along to some ladies who I think add a lot of sparkle to our group:
The Pixel Fairy Princess...her photography is nothing short of breathtaking. She is able to capture people in a way that stills your heart.
Denise at 'Tucked Inside My Heart'. She is always there to lift me up when I need it and her blog designs are so gorgeous (she does them herself) and she definitely has amazing taste.
Kim at 'Isabella Bison'. She always finds the coolest stuff on-line. If you are looking for something unique and memorable, ask her. She has the most giving heart and truly is an amazing friend.
Daleea at 'Jewels of My Heart'. This woman has so many strengths and talents. She designs so many of my baby shower headers and sidebar graphics. She is an amazing seamstress. She is a true friend who anyone can turn to when they need encouragement. She has raised over $5,000 for my favorite cause, Starfish.
And last but not least Steffie from 'Never Too Many'. She is my friend, mentor and keeps me from going nuts through this wait. We can meet for lunch or dinner and talk about anything for hours. I can call her when I'm about to cry and she gets me back on track. Truly, I don't even think I know how much I need her. She has bling for days too...this is a perfect award for her!
The Smile Award
My good friend Patricia from Hip Hip Hubei 2 (private) gave me this award. Her little girl Kiera is Eli's soul sister (they were born on the same day in the same year). Thank you so much Patricia! I love this award.
I must pass this along to Fliss. She doesn't just make me smile, she makes me burst out laughing. She calls me when I'm really struggling and her outlook on life just busts me up. I love her accent and her energy. She is someone who everyone should get to know.
Chelley at 'Live Fully Laugh Often Love Deeply' She is always making me smile. She's my Aussie friend. She has 3 children and is foster mum to 2 little ones. Head on over to her blog. She's begging for someone from the states to send her some poptarts. (really, now you are smiling about that aren't you??)
Kelly at 'Truly Blessed' (private) makes me smile. I am fortunate to live close to her and she has been a constant source of friendship and strength to me through this adoption journey. She is a veteran and has 2 daughters from China along with 3 sons. I am very blessed to have her in my life. It's amazing how God brings people into your life who you will need to make it through certain times.
Lea from 'Oh My 6' makes me smile. She is an absolutely wonderful and giving person. She always leave me the nicest comments and does fun things on her blog. She races dragonboats too...
Lala at 'Ladybugs and Dragonflies' makes me smile and so does little Annslee. And everytime I think about Coby coming home and their
