One of my favorite bloggy friends, nominated me for this award! Thanks Daiquiri. It's a treat to be in such good company.

Okay, the rules are that I list 7 things I love and then pass the award on to 7 other bloggers.

1. Running. Settling into the repetition of feet, elbows, breath, and will marking time.
2. Watching the watery blue of my children's eyes when they tell a story.
3. Stout coffee with whip cream.
4. Planting perennials. Wet dirt, cut grass, children fencing with tomato stakes in the the peripheral.
5. Blowing bubbles.
6. A husband who makes me laugh until I cry.
7. Falling into bed at night dog-tired.

And, 7 blogs I love:
Rock Wood Wire *** R. Feuerstein Photography *** Dan and Cerissa *** Building Our Nest *** Olsons *** Wags *** a time for everything

You've got a one-of-a-kind blog and I love it when a new post from you pops into my reader! I'm also thankful to have a friend who can blow bubbles much longer than I can - and for the entertainment that it provided my girls! :) Thanks for sharing the love.

AWWWW!! You and your momma just make me cry! Both of you are awesome role models individually, but together, you really illustrate the mother-daughter connection that I think every mother and daughter yearn for. And I have to agree with your mom and the best maker-upper of recipes and patterns! I love ya!
