All 4 of these WONDERFUL ladies awarded me the Versatile Blogger award.  (I was given this award before and posted about it previously so am completely humbled)  I am blown away by the sweet words, thoughts, comments, get the idea.  I absolutely love blogging so to be given an award for something I love is icing on that yummy, bloggy cake:)  If you haven't checked out these blogs, please click on the links and give'em all a look.  They are all great and full of super ideas!!

Another huge THANK YOU to Jennifer at Lifelong Learning for giving me the I Heart Your Blog Award!!

Here's a little background and what this award is all about and how it got started:
I Heart Your Blog Award: (so sweet I had to share)
A deaer frind of mine taught me a profound lesson several years ago when she shared her personal mantra, "There is Only Love".  Since then, I have realized that by adopting this mantra in my own life, I have changed my whole approach to everything I experience.  That being said, as a total newbie to the teacher's blogging world, I discovered this gold mine of amazingly creative and talented teachers out there in cyperspace.  There are so many of you spreading the teaching love around the globe by sharing your ideas and experiences.  I just had to create a blog award to celebrate those of you who have touched my heart and inspired me, increasing my love of teaching.
Thank you for sharing your talent with the world!
(ok, I keep finding soo many of you to love!!)
