"I would like to thank..."

Amber, over at "Old Lady and No Baby", nominated me for the Liebster Award! Amber is not only a fellow infertile, she is a fellow Oregonian! Thus, I felt an immediate connection to her.  I must admit that I am kinda shocked to have received any type of anything since I am such a novice blogger! But, I am so happy that people enjoy my blog and that you all tune into read my ramblings of life, infertility, and whatever else I decide to blab about. I am grateful for all the kind words, the support, and the encouragement from the blogging and IF communities! Starting this blog was the smartest thing I have done. It has been such an outlet for me and I have made an impact on others; even if in just the smallest of ways. My husband even loves it!  

Thank you Amber, for nominating me, and being such a great supporter!
