Last June, I had a moment of clarity. I was a mom and a wife, but I felt like I needed to achieve more, for me. Here I am, seven months later, and I am so blessed. Nonperfect Parenting has done so much better than I ever could have anticipated. It is a daily project of love, that is fully supported by my family. I adore each late night, every hour spent in my kitchen nook (where I write), and the endless mail deliveries that have taken over our home.  
     Today, I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award by Joely Smith (FashionBeyondForty.com). This is a blogger who I respect and adore. I have read her blog for months now, and admired her work. She is absolutely incredible, and never in a million years did I assume she would even know Nonperfect Parenting. Thank you Joely, for your kind words and your nomination.
