This is long overdue. Think ridiculously long overdue. A couple of months ago two amazing ladies thought my blog was inspiring and decided to award me for that. They are Jean at Mama Schmama and Laura at Real Life Mommy. Since it only took me almost two months to collect the award they may not be so impressed anymore, but for the sake a Monday post, let’s just all pretend that we are in agreement that I’m pretty damn inspiring.
There’s a bunch of rules attached to this award. In real life, there’s nothing that scares me more than breaking rules, but the blogosphere is wonderful in that it’s not real life. I’m about to break the rules. My inspiration? Dana at Kiss my List.
One of the rules is to nominate and award 15 other blogs. Instead of nominating them, I’m going to list 15 posts for you to read. Posts that inspired, moved me or made me laugh or think or ache.
Instead of listing 7 facts about myself, I won’t.
And to the really interesting part. 15 inspiring posts:

Why do I Blog by Julie Deneen 2.0
I Blog by Whatevs
I’m sure there are so many more posts that I’ve retweeted, shared, commented on which inspired me in the past few weeks that I’ll regret forgetting to include (already flooded: how did I forget Considerings and On Fecund Thought?) but I may start posting links to posts here.
Finally, thank you so much again, dear Jean and Laura and everyone else who reads and enjoys the blog. It makes a huge difference knowing that I’m not writing into a void.
P.S. Any HISTORY BUFFS out there? Next week I’m co-hosting my favourite blog hop: Finish the Sentence Friday. The topic is dinner with any historical figure. Who would it be for you? You can link up on my blog starting from Thursday evening. I’ll be posting more information.
