Today has been one of those days….no, not ‘those days’….one of those bright and glorious days!  School work was accomplished with just a few little issues…nothing major and no tears.  The weather, has been devine.  The children have played in the yard, in the house and we even made it through History, Science, Language Arts, Math, Spelling…and Vocabulary today!!  AND…we picked up our milk and dinner is almost ready.  As if my day could not get any better, Melanie at Sunshine Praises BLESSED me with a Versatile Blogger Award.  I love this blog and have been following it on FB for quite a while….I had no idea she was reading my blog.  But, now I know and am amazed that such a talented writer/blogger/homeschooling Mommy would consider me for this award!!!

To accept the Versatile Blogger Award the rules are:

  • Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
  • Share 7 things about yourself.
  • Pass it along to 15 blogs you’ve recently discovered and enjoy
  • Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

Now 7 things about me:

  1. I forgot how much I love writing, until I started blogging
  2. I LOVE dark chocolate
  3. My husband and I want to start a homestead
  4. I used to roll my eyes at people who drank raw milk, ground/baked their own bread and ate organic food….now, I get it.
  5. I married my husband twice…and would marry him again if I had to!
  6. I am so thankful for my Savior and my promise of Eternity with Him!
  7. I never imagined Blogging would bring new and close friends into my life….but, it has!

And here are the 15 blogs that I am passing the love on to…

Don’t forget about the Twitter party tonight with The Homeschool Village!
**Join the HSV tonight at 9PM EST for our first ever Twitter Chat! It promises to be a fun hour of homeschool Q&A with our panel as well as special guests!! Use the hashtag #askhsv

  2. Thank you so much for this! I'll post it later tonight after church.

    My husband and I want to buy a little farm someday as well!

  3. Thank you, Rebecca, for your thoughtfulness!

  4. So happy to be on the panel with you! Ok, I have to ask you…raw milk…how does that work…directly from the cow? Do you have cows that you get raw milk from? I assume it's safe?

  5. Thank you so much! I really appreciate it!

    And now I'm several awards down. I guess I know what some of my posts will be over the next couple of weeks!


  6. Rebecca,

    Blessings to you,

  8. Rebecca (me!) says:

    Hi everyone! Love all of your blogs…love all of the blogs I read….hate not giving it to everyone!

    Melismama…..yes, straight from the cow from a very trustworthy farm…organic…just the way it was meant to be. We skim half of the cream off the top and make our own butter…so yummy…has all of the vitamins/nutrients and no chemicals/hormones!
