I am delighted to announce that I have been awarded the 2013 Blog of the Year Award from Zainab (“A Mom’s Blog”) at http://zainabjavid.wordpress.com/.  Zainab has a gift for writing narrative that is non-fiction AND compelling!

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegZainab nominated me a few weeks ago – back in early February – and I apologize for the delay in announcing this award.  In the past couple of months I’ve been making some changes to the design of my blog, and I’m now ready to move forward!
