I was nominated and I didn't even know it!
...and, I've been tagged with Seven Sevens
Well, I just found out that I was nominated for a blog award! The bad news is, I didn't become one of the finalists for the Blogs of Beauty Awards, hosted by Two Talent Living...but as they say in Hollywood, hey, it's an honor just to have been nominated!
Notes in the Key of Life was nominated in the "Best Variety" category. What an honor! I plan to go vote for the finalists as soon as possible. Thanks to Two Talent Living for hosting this award; it just goes to show how many wonderful blogs out there are being written by Christian women.
And now, She Lives has tagged me with the "Seven Sevens" meme.
