thank you!

The results of the Blogs of Beauty Awards are in. And ... we (Darlene and I) won! I can take very little credit for this blog design. Darlene found a few pictures and offered them for my approval, and although I did choose the girl standing in the field with her face lifted toward God, who would not choose that, given the choice? I'm sure I could never have found that on my own. Other than a few color requests, all the little special design touches belong to Darlene.

Thanks to all who took the time to vote. Here's a list of the winners:

Best Biblical Exhortation: Rebecca Writes

Best Design - Contemporary: Wind Scraps

Best Design - Traditional: Solo Femininity

Best Discussion: ChoosingHome Blog

Best Encourager: Windows to My Soul

Best Frugality: Like Merchant Ships

Best Homemaking: Large Family Logistics

Best Homeschooling: Spunky Homeschool

Best Humor: Daring Young Mom

Best Meet for a Mocha: Blest with sons

Best Motherhood: ChoosingHome Blog

Best Quiet Spirit: Holy Experience

Best Recipes: bakingsheet

Best Variety: Amy’s Humble Musings

Congratulations and ditto to all the above! (I actually think the writing does figure into the mix as we're trying to evalute these things...it's a subliminal message saying the design plus content equals A+).
