There are some people I have met in blog land who have really touched my heart. Who knew when I started blogging that I would feel such a connection to other people whom I have never met in person; people who have enriched my life beyond measure. For them, I am truly grateful.

Kit at A Montana Life  and  Suzan at Old Grey Mare passed this award on to me.  Two awards in one week. Yikes!  Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
I chuckled when I read how Beth's husband said we bloggers love to award each other, and Beth of Acorn Pies, replying, Yes, we do like to encourage one another, don't we :)  And yes! I guess we do!

The award rules:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award

Seven things about me, (other than my love of family, nature, animals and art!):
1. I am in the midst of watching LOST with my daughter and sometimes my son who has already seen it. We are on season two and are obsessed.

2. I am determined to learn to knit this year and have been practicing regularly. I am having trouble with binding off at the moment, but a friend will show me soon.

3. I have finally realized I have a very willing partner in one of my Haflinger mares. Why I just brushed her aside thinking she needed me less than her sister, the shy one, I don't know. It was a deep revelation to me one morning, that SHE is the one, she has been the one, MY horse, my partner.

4. I am still on my weight loss/ get physically fit journey but I realize I am not trying hard enough .

5. I will be speaking at the Northeast Unschooling Conference this August in Wakefield,MA and am excited. 

6. I have about 31 books out of the library and am honestly reading about 7 at a time. I like the variety and the change depending on the day and my mood.

7. I really need to make an important change in my life, and I am gathering the courage.

Wait till you start watching Grey's Anatomy - now that got us obsessed. We are not big TV watchers so very behind tv shows...

Fun to read your list!
Love Leanne

What? Me? Many thanks for the enormous compliment. It really is amazing the community that exists in Blogland. That took me by surprise as well. Such a blessing.

Now, your Haflingers - GORGEOUS! Those manes. I would be so fixated on photographing those stunning manes. Hey, you should consider linking up to Farm Friday. :-)

Blessings and light...

Aww, thanks so much for thinking of me Marcia :) I'm so happy to have met you through blogging to. Blogging opened up such a wonderful new world for me to connect with so many wonderful mamas to chat with and learn from. I don't know how I lived without the internet for all those years! Hugs
