Good things

I received an email folks. An email that I initially thought was a hoax. And then I read it more carefully.

But first, a back story.

Last April, my mom and sister and I attended an event in Seattle called Time Out For Women. Basically it's the most boss conference around. Speakers who are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints travel to different cities encouraging women and telling us how awesome we are, what a great job we're doing, and why our Heavenly Father loves us so much.

We spend two days listening to speakers, hearing uplifting music, and basically laughing a lot staying up late.

I went feeling down in the dumps and discouraged about what my role in life was, and I left feeling renewed as a mother and like a million dollar woman.

So imagine my utter shock when the email I received was from the folks over at Time Out For Women, or asking me, ME!, to be a featured blogger on their website!!!!!!!!

They had come across a certain post of mine and felt it fit with the ideals of Time Out For Women. I was so completely overwhelmed and said yes immediately of course!

And guess what? That is!!!! So although you've hopefully read it here on my blog, will you head on over to and read it again? I'm in the featured blog section, yay me!

I feel so fortunate to be asked to be part of something I really believe in, even if only for the week that my blog is featured.

The mission of Time Out For Women is such a fantastic one. (from the email I received)It is "to create a place, whether at our events or on our website, that women can feel the unity and strength that they as women have to become and do good in the world. It’s a place where women can reconnect and recharge. The 2011 Theme for Time Out For Women is Choose to Become. We are inviting women everywhere to choose one thing they want to do, change, or learn to become a little closer to the woman they are meant to be. features blogs where women share something about their process of becoming."

Seriously, I'm on cloud nine today. 

Won't you join me over at Please, pretty please? And then will you come back here and tell me what you thought? 

You know I love all of you so much-my family and friends and those I have come to know through blogging, and those that read my blog quietly, but I know you're there! Thank you so much!

I love having a place to share who I am, who we are as a family, and all the little joys that add up to be Amy's Spoonful of Sugar. Thanks for going on the journey with me!
