  1. Allie, congratulations on your nomination — well deserved! 🙂

    Thank you so much for nominating me and for your support. I have a hard time with these nominations because I struggle choosing among great blogs. That’s why I don’t tend to participate. I would end up nominating all of you, seriously.
