Thank You!

I finally finished my assignment for my summer class, so I finally have time for fun again!  So first off, Thank you for all of the kind congratulations and to all of the new followers!  I am constantly overwhelmingly amazed by the kindness of all the wonderful ladies in the blog crowd.  The kind words of the comments and the posts I read bring smiles to my face. Thank You!

Second, a great big Thank You to Miss Southern Prep for The Stiletto Award!  It's so nice of her!  If you haven't checked out her blog yet, head on over.  She just graduated from high school and is heading off to college- so exciting!  I'm looking forward to living vicariously through her college experience.


First, let us understand the Stiletto... some words that describe it...

Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

“Walking in extremely high heels is not something that the average woman (or man) will need to do in their everyday life. However, there are times when this skill may be required.” I want to salute the women who balance life, family, and relationships with style and class! Those women who share their experiences with us…who encourage us, inspire us, teach us, make us laugh and basically keep us going! You know who they are! While you read this blog, your family is looking at you wondering what the heck you are laughing about so hard…or why the tissue is necessary for internet browsing. It’s the one that the kids are excited about because a new post means a new craft project or family outing. The one that inspires you to be a better mom, friend, person in general. The one that reminds you that we are all “in this life together” and you’re not the only one going through the hard stuff. The one that you secretly wish your blog was like…

“Heels this high are not meant for clubbing or walking long distances in. They are mainly used for getting from the living room to the bedroom, from the car to the restaurant, or for a short stroll along the catwalk.”

If you’ve received this award, someone out there thinks you deserve it! Be proud! Display the badge with honor! You earned it…after all it means that you brought something special to at least one other person, and really, isn’t that what life’s all about?


This blog award is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents. If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:

1. Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar! Wear it with pride…

2. BRAG ABOUT IT! -write a post about your award. Include the link to this page so everyone will understand what it’s all about!



Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life! We love it & thank you!

I pass this wonderfully-worded award to the following bloggers:

And to any other wonderful blogger that has yet to be tagged with this award!

I'm also thrilled that it's finally officially summer!  I hope everyone's been enjoying there's so far.  I've noticed that many fellow bloggers are traveling, and I know I'm certainly looking forward to reading about all of the wonderful trips.  I'm heading home to Canada tomorrow for Canada Day and Independence Day weekend.  I'm so excited to see my parents and my friends again, and for the celebrations ahead.
