I’m thrilled and surprised to have been voted the Top San Francisco Bay Area Mom Blog on the Circle of Moms community site, among extremely close competition. Some of my pals are also on the Top 25 list, such as Frog Mom, A Little Yumminess and The Family Chef. I also got to discover some other beautiful and inspiring blogs, such as Goat Notes, Suburban Homestead and Using Our Words. I suggest you check out the entire list for gorgeous photos, great resources and fun family ideas.
The other thing I discovered is what an outrageously supportive, talented, energetic, enthusiastic, funny, loyal — and did I mention supportive? — circle of friends and readers I have. I can’t begin to count the number of you who voted, asked friends and families to vote (repeatedly!), cheered from the sidelines, wrote kind notes, and voted again — from across the U.S. into France, Germany and New Zealand. I so appreciate the support and camaraderie. For a couple of weeks, for an internet contest, you made my world feel like a village. That is the best prize of all, and for that I will always be grateful.
Earlier this year, I was also very honored and surprised to make Red Tricycle‘s list of favorite San Francisco Bay Area parent blogs. I am also grateful to have made Power Moms Unite‘s 7 Blogs for an Inspired, Simple Life. And, earlier, to have been granted a One Lovely Blog Award from Green Phone Booth. You will want to check out the other blogs on all three sites.
I hope, like me, you’ll keep supporting blogs and people who promote living with intention, fun, beauty, community, appreciation and warmth. And, if you still have a little voting left in you, I suggest you visit the Circle of Moms Top 25 SoCal Mom Blogs contest and join me in voting for two great nature-blog pals, Go Explore Nature and Fun Orange County Parks. :)
