We had a great week in Florida! I can't tell you how exciting it was to look at houses and actually start planning for retirement. I returned to work in a great mood, ran to Mom's on my break, back to work, picked up pizza on the way home and anxiously awaited the kids arrival. Dinner with the kids was great, they all had things to share about their week off and return to school.
A great week followed by a great day! The kids sat around the table and John got them all online so I picked up my computer to quickly check my email and look what I found!
Wow! I was speechless - for about 10 seconds. My husband offered his congratualtions. The kids wanted to know what all the fuss was about. They were unimpressed, after all I haven't written anything about Amelia Earhart and she was our cousin wasn't she? I haven't even written about the branch of the family that owns the candy factory. In short, my genealogy blog is boring to them.
Thank you to all of you who find my ordinary ancestors and my ramblings here worth reading and voting for! I am absolutely floored and thrilled to have Apple's Tree included in Family Tree Magazine 40 Best Genealogy Blogs. And to be listed with so many other great blogs is amazing to me. Congratulations to you all!
My husband is afraid this will go to my head. Every time he looks at me I just grin and he shakes his head and says I'm giddy. Yes, giddy I am :-)
