With all the excitement of the birthday celebrations and country music confessions, I completely forgot to tell you all that I’ve won my first award!

I’ve only been blogging for about 6 months so am thrilled to have received a Best Moments award…nominated by Moment Matters.

Moment Matters is a blog where anyone can share their special moments, regardless of what that moment might be.

And, as is only right, I am now reblogging about the award:



Awarding the people who live in the moment,
The noble who write and capture the best in life,
The bold who reminded us what really mattered –
Savoring the experience of quality time.


Winners re-post this completely with their acceptance speech. This could be written or video recorded.

Winners have the privilege of awarding the next awardees (up to 15)! The re-post should include a NEW set of people/blogs worthy of the award; and winners notify them the great news.


  • What makes a good acceptance speech?
    • Gratitude. Thank the people who helped you along the way
    • Humor. Keep us entertained and smiling
    • Inspiration. Make your story touch our lives
  • Get an idea from the great acceptance speeches, compiled in MomentMatters.com/Speech
  • Display the award’s badge on your blog/website, downloadable in MomentMatters.com/Award
