I passed a church. Out the front was a large billboard and on it was this message:
"Some of God's greatest gifts are packaged as people..."
I was one of the lucky 'recipients' and it was seriously just what I needed, a little bit of encouragement and love, during a less that fantastic day/week. Thank you my dear!!!And then I thought, wouldn't it be a lovely Christmas gesture to recognise some of the special people in blogland who entertain, enrich, inspire and lighten our lives a little with their words each day?
I am now passing on the 'gift' to others:
Tina from Rubies Place
You couldn't get a lovelier person in the kind, caring, and creative package which is Tina! She is an amazing Mum and friend who puts everything into her girls, hubby and home and while she's juggling all of that she is studying to become a school teacher, crafting and thrifting to the amazement and inspiration of everyone and running a wonderful etsy shop! Tina is like the big sister I never had and I'm so lucky to have 'met' her! xx
Amanda from Homely One
When your bubs are only a few weeks apart in age there is automatically a special bond you share with someone and I am so glad that Amanda and I share this commonality as she has become such a great friend to me. I only wish we didn't live on opposite sides of the country as playdates, coffee and shopping excursions would be so much fun together! Thank you Amanda for always being there, commenting on my blog and writing back to my 'Is Gracie Girl currently ____ like William is at the moment?' emails. You are truly an awesome friend! xx
Jane from Life on Planet Baby
I love Jane's honesty and I love the passion that she puts into her blog. Her posts are amazing and I always feel like I'm reading an extract from a book when I read her posts. Jane is also my official Media Monitor and My Sweet Prints supporter. Thank you Jane! xx
Sarah B from Molly's Maison
Sarah B always inspires me with her beautiful garden, amazingly stylish renovations of her home, her wearable art is breathtaking and her photography is stunning (see recent post here) and her love for Molly her gorgeous doggy is soooooo sweet!
Kerri from Driftwood Interiors
I wish I could paint like Kerri, but I can't so I just have to keep going back to her blog and drooling :) Kerri also finds the most beautiful homes around the world to share on her blog and her style really resonates with me. Kerri is also such a sweety, always commenting and passing on a bit of wisdom, from an experienced Mum with kids older than my William, I always love hearing her perspective on things.
So thank you Nicole for starting this wonderful Christmas Game. I've nearly been blogging for a year now, it was after getting back from our Christmas/New Year holiday in January that I decided to start blogging and I have just loved every minute of it and it's all because of you guys, readers, bloggers, commenters etc - thank you!!!!
Have a great day everyone,
