Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

I'd like to thank the Academy . . . or at least Eve!
Who knew there was such a thing as blog awards? Okay, maybe you all did, but I apparently live in a hole. Thanks to Eve, who nominated me. I have to say, I've been thoroughly enjoying her blog, Infertility Rocks! - she writes about infertility with a sense of sarcasm and humor that just somehow makes me smile about all the hard times. She has a way of saying EXACTLY what I've thought and it makes me feel less alone. Yes, I have a son now, but that doesn't mean that I've put my IF experience behind me. I think you are never the same after you experience IF. We also plan to TTC#2, and I worry about going through all that pain again . . . and what will happen if we can't have a #2. Anyway, if you can't ACTUALLY have a great attitude about IF, then you might as well use sarcasm, intelligence, and humor to process the pain and make it bearable. She does a great job of helping us all find humor in an unfair situation.
Anyway, I have been charged with nominating 10 more blogs that are award-worthy. I'd give the award back to Eve since I'm loving her blog, but in the spirit of fairness, I'll just state that publicly since I probably shouldn't just pass it right back to her after she just won it!
So here are the rules: Put the logo on your blog or post. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude. Be sure to link to your nominees in your post Let your nominees know they have received the award by leaving them a comment on their blog And be sure to link this post to the person who nominated you for the award.
So, here are my awardees (really, I could have given this to ALL of the bloggers on my blog roll, but I was asked to pick only 10):
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
