Awards for me! And for you!



I am so thrilled!  When I started this blog a little over 6 months ago, I had no clue what was in store for me!  Today I have 300 GFC followers, and followers who read from FB, and internet searches, I am really blown away!  I am so happy to have stumbled upon this amazing community.  I have "met" so many truly amazing people.  I also have won many awards.  I have really fallen behind in accepting them.  I feel it is so important to accept these awards as if it wasn't for all of you who read and comment on my blog it wouldn't be the blog it is today!

I have to break some award rules....sorry.  I am going to award two bloggers for each award I received.
