I Was Blitzed! and Celebrate the Small Things-August 2, 2013

This has been a busy week.  It's also been a gratifying week.  I wanted to take the time to acknowledge something truly awesome that happened to me this week.

I was blitzed!  (Hmm, that kinda sounds like a euphemism for getting drunk, doesn't it?)

Thanks to D.L. Hammons and the blog blitzing minions (you're all wonderful!) for taking the time to visit me on Monday (and for a few of you, on Tuesday)!  You made my day with your wonderful comments!  The Blog Blitz is a great way to support the bloggers that make our blogging community great!  I'm honored to be one of the chosen few who get to feel the blogging love!

I also wanted to take a moment to send warm thoughts to Jeff Hargett, who was also selected for the blog blitz this week.  He wrote a beautiful tribute to his wife, who he recently lost.  These types of losses can shake your whole world beyond recognition.  It's good to know, at least, that bloggers can come together and support one another in a time of need.

It's also Friday, so that means it's time to Celebrate the Small Things with VikLit!

Obviously, being the target of a blog blitz is a pretty awesome thing to celebrate!

I would also like to celebrate the fact that I made it through the week without losing my shoes.  That may sound insignificant, but I live with two children that love to hide things. They also love walking around in my shoes, pretending that they're big.  So the fact that I didn't have my shoes lost for me once this week is a small miracle!

What would you like to celebrate?


  1. Congratulations on being Blitzed! Hope you have a great week ahead :)

  2. I think the Blogging Blitzes are just awesome. Congrats on being a selected party! :D

    It was tragic news about Jeff's wife - still hard to believe as she was so young!

  3. Glad you enjoyed the blitz - and still have your shoes!

  4. Glad the blog blitz was a blast!

    Thoughts are with Jeff and his family.

  5. Congratulations on the Blog Blitz! Sorry I missed it, I was still in Spain at the time :)

  6. Such a lovely thing to celebrate, not losing your shoes! I'm so glad you enjoyed the blitz, and I am doubly glad that we can send such wonderful support via the blogosphere!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. That's funny about the shoes.
    Glad you had a good Blitz day!

  8. Congrats about being Blitzed!

    And congrats about not losing your shoes! My shoes disappear all the time, but that's because I never put them away.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
