A Very Inspring Blog Award!!!

I am so excited to announce that I have been given 
Very Inspiring Blogger Award 
from my blogging friend Chandelle over at Mommy In The Making. I started my blog for somewhat of a journal and then it has now become a journal for others to keep up with our ever changing life and baby girl!

So the rules are…
  • Display award logo on blog
  • Link back to the person who gave you the award
  • State 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link back to them and comment on each of the blog’s letting them know they have been nominated

7 Things About Me:

1. One of the best things about me is my beautiful little girl, Grace. She is 8 months old and the joy of my life! She keeps me very busy and I love every minute of it!

2. I had never broken a bone in my life until giving birth and upon making her appearance in this world Grace broke my tailbone. Apparently it happens sometimes.

3. I have 3 sisters and 1 brother, for a grand total of 5 kids. BUT... because I am so blessed I now have 5 sisters and 4 brothers! Thanks for marriage I was given an even bigger family and I love every minute of it!

4. I have been married to the best husband in the world for 5 1/2 years!!! I can not wait to see what is in store for us! We grew up in the same town, but did not meet until both of us had graduated from college. We fell in love in Africa and then through snail mail. 

5. I had been dreaming of buying a home for years and we finally bought our first home a year ago this month!

6. I LOVE to run!!! I have now run 7 marathons and dream of one day running one in every state with the help of my husband.

7. We have the best dog in the world, Addis. My husband, Michael, got her for me right after we got married. He was working a job where he traveled a lot and he surprised me with her to keep me company. I was so mad at him, but now I could not live without her. She is very well behaved and wonderful with Grace.

Also nominated for the Very Inspiring Blog Award:


  1. LOVED learning more about you! And I also love that you want to run in every state. What an awesome goal!

    Thanks for the nomination. :) :)

  2. Awww... you are so sweet! Thanks for the nomination! You are so inspiring already having completed 7 marathons. I've only done a half and that was pushing it! Love that picture of Addis.. she sounds like the perfect pup. My friend broke her tailbone too... can't imagine what that was like! Have a great week Katie!

    1. Wow! That is crazy that someone else broke their tailbone! I had never heard of it happening to anyone until it happened to me!

  3. Thank you so much! I love your blog and would love to hear more about how you and your husband fell in love in Africa?! Sounds pretty cool.

    1. That is a good idea for a post sometime ... :)
