Some Blog Love!

Over the weekend I was surprised to have
two blog awards sent my way!

Amy passed it on to Debbie
who passed it on to me!

Ellie passed it on to Dianna
who passed it on to me!

The "Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" asked me to share a few things about myself and pass the award along to some blogs that I love ~ So, here goes!

1. I'm 50!  2. A bit of a TV junkie...  3. Love cranberry juice, food made with cranberries, decorations made with cranberries...and the color cranberry.  4. I adore being a MOM!  5. I want to run a craft studio some day  6. Love to camp.  7. I really like actual mail...the kind that comes to the box and has a stamp.

Here are some Irresistibly Sweet Blogs:
She and I "wish" together on Wednesdays! You should join us!

She and I connected cause she's an American living in France
just like I was for years!

Love her photography. Love her philosophy
Love linking up with Sunday Citar.

More amazing photography.
Poignant. Silly. Real. Wonderful.

The Liebster (German for friend or love) Blog award is meant to bring more attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers ~ here are some more of my favorite blog friends:

Real life friend, and my blogging inspiration.

Could read her poetry every day.

Can't really tell from her blog how many followers she has....
so hopefully this won't insult her.
Her Six Word Fridays linky and the group that writes with
her are wonderful. I've LOVED getting to know her!

This is an important blog.
(don't really know how many followers she has either)
For all of us ~ divorced or not.
The writing and relationship principles discussed
are both profound and challenging.

One of my newest discoveries ~ she writes with
tenderness and honesty. She's drawn me in!

I love my blogging community(ies).  Maybe you'll discover a new space that you'd like to visit. On any given day (as you all know) some of us are "up" and others are struggling. Births are celebrated, milestones shared, and illness and death are prayed for and mourned. I'm reminded daily how wide open and wonderful the world is, and how much good is out there. I'm called higher ~ my thinking is challenged and I'm inspired to keep writing. I'm grateful to those who "drop in" and those who settle in and read almost everything I put out there!

Most of all,
Thanks to Debbie and Dianna 
for their lovely blogs
and all their encouragement!

Feel free to take your award and pass it on!
