Wow. Of all the people I know, Kris giving me this award means the most to me. First of all she’s an incredible friend. I love you, girl! And she is also one of the most talented people I know, both in photography and in her ability to write. She has a way of expressing herself that absolutely envelopes me, it’s truly mesmerizing. And it obviously does the same for her huge following 🙂 And with as much adversity and loss as she has endured in the last few years, she has still remained untainted, passionate and supportive to those around her. She is beyond courageous, beyond loving. Thank you, Kris! I am truly blessed to call you ‘friend’ 🙂
Laine at The Ferrill Bunch. You rock! I so enjoy reading your blog and seeing pictures of your beautiful and inspiring family. And you have a heart the size of Alabama, girl! Your support and encouragement of others, me included, is truly inspirational. Your posts are personal, introspective and transparent and those who follow you are always left with something of value to hang on to… words of wisdom, of encouragement, of sisterly love 🙂
Barbie at Moments Memories Milestones. You have quite a way with words! Your ability to share about your walk with the Lord causes me to both question and expect more from myself and to be motivated to walk more closely with Him. You are an incredibly devoted mama to many 😉 and seem to handle it all flawlessly (and still manage to be stunningly beautiful!)
Deb at Sophie’s World. First of all, can I say you take the most fantastic pictures I’ve ever seen?!? You’ve got some serious skills, girl! I know that your Sophie is a gorgeous subject, but still!! And on top of that, you’re a really wonderful person. You reach out to others and give of yourself, you model the kindness that many people just talk about… you actually DO it. Thank you for the gift of your blog and your friendship 🙂
Leslie at Myah’s Days. I just love to read your blog! The way you are able to share what is truly on your heart is infectious, you make me want to be more transparent. You are an obviously doting mama with an uncanny ability to take a fabulous picture! Your taste is incredible, everything on your blog has a quiet elegance 🙂 I am so glad we ‘met’… I know you are wanting to take some more time for your family, but I hope you keep those pictures and posts coming when you can!!
Kim at Phillips Family Adoption Journey. We met only last fall, but ever since then, you have not stopped amazing me! Your desire and passion to follow God’s leading is such an encouragement to me and I am sure to others. And watching God work to help bring your precious Hope home has been such a testimony to how He works in the lives of the faithful! I have been so blessed by our friendship, and so inspired by your hard work, devotion and unswerving faith.
