    In my acknowledgement / nomination section, I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award due to the great information you share and the way you strive for success. You seek to continuously improve yourself and grow and you inspire me. Take a look when you get a moment and thanks for all your great work Tammy! http://quickmeups.com/2014/07/15/lovely-inspiring-blog-awards
