Sweet Sunshine!

On Wednesday, my sweet blogging friend LanyardLady, shared this Sunshine Award with me. If you've not visited her before now, hop right on over and say hi - and tell her I sent you.

The Sunshine Award is presented to "bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspires others in the blog world."

I want to thank LanyardLady for the award and add that - to her and everyone that reads my blog - this blogging thing has been such a great experience.

I've been blessed to have met so many wonderful people from so many different places and learned so many things about them, their lives and the places they live. (Not to mention all the yummy recipes I've collected from a number of them.) Each and everyone has brought their own sunshine into my daily life. And for that, I am very grateful.

Now it's my turn to share the award with a few folks (both 2-legged and 4-legged).

Melinda from Mickey and Me - she has a soft spot in her heart for our animal friends
Angela from Pickles on Pizza - a wonderfully creative lady
Linda May from Blueridge Boomer - who creates quilts in the blink of an eye
Mollie Joe and Bobo from Dog Eared - 2 sweet Poodles who blog about their lives in Kentucky

There are a number of blogs that I read that are tag and/or award free and I respect those bloggers decisions. One of those blogs belongs to Terry from Lady Liberty Patriot. I will refrain from sharing the Sunshine Award with her but I did want to feature her blog too in case anyone would like to pay her a visit. She has a wonderful, creative way with words that I think you'd enjoy.
