.....rock the vote!......

.....another event that drew me to tears this past week was the email I received from Circle of Moms informing me that my blog was nominated for Top 25 New York Moms.....this blog has always been a place for me to come and reflect on the everyday life of raising my three babies in the city.....it has been my outlet, a place I can arrive and let it all pour out.....and it started after one night of thankful conversation with Stefan about how much we loved our city life.....and then behold, this blog was born.....I believe I stated my love for this blog best this past spring when this blog turned two......


....above all things, blog, you are my one and only.....you are the only thing, besides Stefan, who truly belongs to me.....as mommas, we all share everything with our children and our husbands.......although I share what I write with our friends and family who choose to read you, when I sit down to document my thoughts, it is just you and me.....I can write what I want, reflect how I want and create memories through the pictures I choose to use.....you are my creative place and my sense of accomplishment in archiving the effort, work and love I strive to give my family.....

.....as much as I love giving, it feels good to arrive here and do as I please.....so thank you for that, blog.....you keep me grounded, help me to be more grateful, more thankful and more reflective......you truly keep me sane and give me quiet time in the evening to arrive and just be.....

....so minutes upon securing a temporary place to live in CT and the finality of leaving the city starting to set in, this email arrived with the NY blog nomination......and just having someone who reads this blog nominate it on my way out of NYC was a gift in itself.....I would love for your voice to be part of the voting.....just click the pink icon below this post......you can vote once a day until Sept. 12.......ironically, it's also the week we are leaving.....

......from someone who started this blog as a place to come to cherish my family; I am humbled that there are readers who come to be inspired, relate their own lives to mine or comment with their own ideas of how they savor and cherish it all.....

.....thank you.......

Congratulations on the nomination. That's always an honor when we are recognized for our passions!! I'm a little sad you are leaving the big city....I lived vicariously through you a little! Gosh I miss NYC! CT is nice though and I hope you and your family will love that as much!
