You're Going Places, Baby!

It has become a soothing ritual for me....twice a day, every day....once in the morning and then again in the evening, I make it a point to come on my blog and take a look at my list of blog favorites to see which blogs have been updated.  I then sit with my cup of coffee (remember, I'm a caffeine addict) and read through each and every one.

Imagine my surprise when reading The Simply Luxurious Life update I realized I was bestowed with the You're Going Places, Baby blog award.  My very first award!  I was beyond excited to receive an award from a blogger who, in just a few short months, I have come to treasure.  Her updates are tremendously uplifting, beautiful, and chock full of wisdom. I must admit I eagerly anticipate each one.  So when I saw she presented me with this honor my heart swelled with tremendous warmth and gratitude.  Thank you so much, Shannon.  It really does mean a lot to me.

As the proud recipient of this award I must also comply with two things:
  • Describe where you think you'll be in 10 years
  • Pass the fun along to other bloggers
 Ten years from now I hope to find myself fulfilling a dream which was inspired by my daughter.  She has big hopes and dreams for her future and the moment she shared them with me, she said she would like to see me at her side helping her every step of the way.  So in ten years I hope to be managing a brilliant young woman's career.  I hope to keep her grounded and help steer her in the right direction.  I hope to be able to give her sound advice and to be able to take a step back and allow her to make her own decisions when my advice is not required.  The path that she wants to take is a tough one, but she has already demonstrated the maturity, commitment and perseverance needed in order to make her dream a reality.  So I am in it with her and for her, all the way.

I would like to bestow this marvelous award to :

Ladies, your blogs always put a smile on my face.

Thanks again, Shannon.  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
