Awww, shucks! Thanks guys! A huge THANK YOU! To Melissa, who's generously nominated me for the "Thinking Blogger" Awards! HA! I actually think it's pretty scary that someone has even suggested, that I've made them think!!! hehehe!!! Thanks Melissa, you are such a sweet heart!

So... in order for me to be nominated, I need to nominate 5 blogs. I know that some of these have already received nominations - but they truly make me think... which is a challenge in itself!!!
Salsa in China - By Mary-Mia
Imagine - Alyzabeth Ann - By Alyson and Ford
Worth the Wait - By Rhonda
Somewhere in China - By Connie
Thanks girls (sorry... and FORD!) for inspiring, thought provoking, laughter inducing, passionate, challenging, always interesting posts! I love all your blogs (plus a gazillion others!) Keep writing. I'll keep reading!
**Note: "Gazillion" now does that sound like a word that someone that induces "thought" would write?!!!**

Time for Change...

Time for change? Sounds good to me! Change is as good as a holiday, they say! (yeah, right! but it sounds good for the purposes of this post!)

Like many other bloggers, we start out, baring our souls, our families, our lives... then something happens, that makes us re-assess, what we put out there for the whole world to see.

For me, it wasn't anything profound. Just me getting a little antsy. I still want to share my life with those who care to drop in. I'd like to use a little more discretion! (I'm not very good at discretion, so we'll so how it progresses!!!)

For those who've been following for a while, you'll know that I'm married, and have 2 kids, with another one on the way. So for the purposes of my blog, I've decided to go with a "Toy Story" theme when naming them all!

So, Hubs is "Woody" (ever the law enforcer), Daughter1 is "Jessie" (the free spirited one), Son1 is "Buzz" (super hero extrodinaire) and Daughter on her way is "Mini" ... ok Mini isn't from Toy Story, but I couldn't think of a character to describe Mini, especially coz we don't even know her yet!!!

So... I hope you'll follow along as we share our life in Australia, and one day travel to China to meet and bring home our little "Mini"! So make sure you "blogline" my new url!
