One Lovely Blog Award

Alana of A Twig in My Tree has kindly named AnceStories as a recipient for the One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you, Alana!

I'm passing on the award to seven more blogs/bloggers. First, the GeneaBloggers:

Generations Gone By's Weblog - because she keeps on blogging even though she's an extremely busy mom whose duties often get in the way of blogging (boy! can I relate). She motivates me!

Itawamba History Review: The Itawamba Historical Society
- full of lovely photos from the South and the Southern past

Gena's Genealogy - Gena's always blogging about great resources, and I especially enjoy her Church Record Sunday series.

I'm also nominating some non-genealogy bloggers' blogs (gasp! can you believe it?):

Scribbit: A Blog About Motherhood in Alaska
- a title that was intriguing no matter what, but when Alaska is the place where you grew up, well, that just makes it all the more compelling to read (a touch from home).

Summer's Nook - I found Summer from her genealogy blog on an LDS website, but got hooked on her personal blog about motherhood with some major posts on her creativity (website design, cake decorating, etc.) thrown in.

Jennifer Fawbush Photography - Jennie's creative photography of infants, children, and families in natural surroundings is a work of art and love. The fact that Jennie is my niece (OK, technically she's my husband's niece) has absolutely nothing to do with gifting her this award. At all. I mean it.

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far - Apple's genealogy blog,
Apple's Tree, was nominated about 347 times for this award (and justly so!), but I like her personal blog just as well. I wish Apple didn't live across the continent from me, because I would love to be her next door neighbor.

Thanks Miriam!

Thanks so much on this early Friday morning.

At least it's still early for me. I'm still in bed :)

Thanks Miriam. I like your blog too and nominate you too if that is allowed.

I hope that my blog teaches others that while genealogy is my passion, life does take over some times and when it does, I just spend time with the descendants, the one lone ancestor and wait until bedtime to hit the genealogy pile on my desk.
And that's okay. The cool thing about genealogy as a hobby is it's always there.

You are so sweet. I also wish we lived closer and hopefully we will meet one day.

I was very surprised to receive this award when I have been so guilty of blog neglect. I am starting to see the light at the end of this tunnel I've been stuck in and hope to be back to regular posting on both blogs sometime next week.
