I Received a Lovely Blog Award - Awesome!

I sure was tickled yesterday when I received an email  from Kim at Heritage Heart nominating this blog for the One Lovely Blog Award!  (I spent all day yesterday trying to make it lovlier ;-) I have seen this award on many blogs since I first began blogging in 2009.  It is so awesome to finally get one!  Thanks Kim!

There are three simple rules for accepting this award:

  1. Acknowledge the award by posting on your blog.
  2. Nominate 15 other blogs that you think are lovely.
  3. Contact each person to let them know that they have been nominated.

I scoured the genealogy blogsphere last night picking my 15 recipients. In my opinion, the following blogs are informative, pleasing to the eye, and heartfelt with a little jocularity on the side.

And the awards go to (in no particular order):

  1. Finding Josephine
  2. Family Stories
  3. My Cleagues and Reeds
  4. Family Cherished
  5. Jirene's Genealogy Tips
  6. Diary of a Mad Genealogist
  7. ~Spirits of the Old~
  9. Climbing My Family Tree One Branch at a Time
  11. In My Life
  12. Kinfolk News
  13. Mountain Genealogist
  14. More Than Names
  15. The Checkered Chicken

Congratulations guys! You all deserve it!

  8. Imagine my surprise when I sat down to (finally!) spend some quality time with my blog to discover your very kind nomination of "In My Life" for the One Lovely Blog Award! As you may know, I consider your blog one of my favorite's but when I arrived at Lost Family Treasure I discovered you've done some major decorating?! It is drop-dead gorgeous. I hope you will share you secret for adding the beautiful embellishments ... you've most certainly set the bar high. Looks like I have some 'catching up' to do. Thank you Leslie Ann - it is the appreciation from my blogosphere friends whose work I admire, that keeps me plugging away "In My Life."


  9. Thanks Cindy! I'm glad you like my new digs!

    If you go to you will find numerous backgrounds to choose from. These are just codes that you can paste in your sidebar anywhere and then you can go to the template designer to tweak it a bit.

  10. Thank you so much Leslie ann :) I'm so sorry I did not see my email from you until tonight :(
    I have passed it on to 6....and will continue to search for more to pass the award on too.
