15 Must-Follow Girl Bosses for Your Everyday Inspiration: Versatile Blogger Award

When I received an email with the subject line "Versatile Blogger Award," my heart leapt. Award? Me? Are you SURE?

It took a second and third time of reading the email before I actually realized I was, in fact, the correct recipient.

The email itself really was a beautiful reminder of just how wonderful it is for others to be able to find and appreciate my content as much as I enjoy creating it. I am forever appreciative of my very small corner of the Internet and all of the wonderful gems who read my weekly sprinkles and share, comment, and/or like them.

I am beyond flattered and grateful to have been nominated for and awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Lucy of the fabulous travel blog Lucy Williams Global. Thank you so much, Lucy!


Of course, as per the rules, I hope to give other bloggers a similar feeling of gratitude by gifting some of you with this peer-nominated honor.

While the idea of making a list of 5,102,936 bloggers who deserve this was incredibly simple, it was definitely not quite as easy to narrow it down to just 15. But, I eventually decided to nominate and award the Versatile Blogger Award to the bloggers below, whom I have grown to truly admire (in no particular order).

1. Bria of Tendril Wild
2. Kayla of Gen Y Girl
3. Emily of Spire & Co
4. Courtney of The Family Ma'am
5. Monique of The Indie-Lancer
6. Rachel of The Confused Millennial
7. Rebecca of Fieldhouse Kitchen
8. Kit of KitStanwood.com
9. Mary of The Candid Millennial
10. Brielle of The Gilded Bellini
11. Chelsea of The Millennial Miss
12. Danielle "D" of Be You & Thrive
13. MJ of Keeping Up with MJ
14. Layne of Short & Sweet
15. Sydney of MsSydney.com

For all different reasons, you ladies deserve this little reminder that you are all absolute bosses.
