Sunshine Award

9 Mar

I have just learned that I was nominated for this wonderful little award over two weeks ago.  I had no idea and kind of discovered it accidentally while browsing through Lori’s previous posts over at Bless Your Hippie Heart.  I was browsing through her previous posts because I love what she has to say and the things she chooses to share with us.  The Sunshine Award is given to “bloggers who are inspirational, and who have impacted your blogging or your life”  Thank you Lori, I am honored to be nominated by you and I appreciate all of your kind comments you send my way!

The Sunshine Award Has Some Rules:

-Include the award logo in a post or on your blog

-Answer 10 questions about yourself

-Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers

-Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blogs letting them know   they have been nominated

-Share the love and link the person who nominated you

The Ten Questions

Favorite Color – orange

Favorite Animal – cat

Favorite Number – 2

Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink – sweet tea

Prefer Facebook or Twitter – Twitter, but not on either one

My Passion – anything creative (painting, photography, cooking, blogging)

Prefer Getting or Giving Presents – both

Favorite Pattern – cathedral window

Favorite Day of the Week – Friday

Favorite Flower – why the orange gerber of course…ok not really…my favorite is the white rose

Spreading The Love

There are so many wonderful blogs that I follow that I kind of feel guilty leaving any of them out.  I am sure that a few of you have probably already received this award.  I mean how could you not, you are so marvelous!  Here are the blogs that I have nominated:   Anita is my blogging best buddy.  How many of us can say that as a child we lived in a Cambodian refugee camp or on a tropical island?  She can.  She has had an interesting life and has a lot to offer the rest of us.  Her recipes are incredible but she seems to be very modest about it all.  On top of all of this, she is also a law student.  She is always encouraging and leaves the sweetest comments.  Mina is another one who is very supportive.  I am inspired by her bravery to get in there and try some of the toughest recipes out there.  She has some wonderful recipes and I have a few of hers that I plan to make at some point.  Tia was raised in the West Indies and states that she is a simple girl in her own simple world, but let me just tell you that this girl is really bringing it!  She posts every single day and sometimes a couple times of day.  She is no slacker this one.  And the recipes are wonderful.  She seems to impress with every post.  Sam is precious and always sends kind comments my way.  This girl has got some skills okay!  I love all of her recipes. They are truly wonderful, but please go check out her Valentine’s Pav-Love-A.  It is spectacular!  Choc Chip Uru is who she has become in the land of blog.  I am inspired by her because she is a teenager who is truly beyond her years.  Her blog is fun and creative and is a good read.  She has a passion for the recipes she creates for us and is always supportive to me with her comments.  Elly is a sweet girl who is from Bulgaria and she loves to cook for her husband.  She is definetly spicing things up in Vegas with her wonderful recipes.  I know she just nominated me, but Lori is definetly on my list of blogs that inspire me.  Not only for her fabulous recipes but because you can tell she cares about things that are going on in the world and she shines a light on topics that should matter to all of us.  So bacatcha Lori.  Averil is such an interesting person who sounds like she has already had a full life.  She always sends nice comments my way and she nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award.  She is a writer, an artist, a lawyer AND she cooks, WOW!  Malou was one of the first people to follow my blog.  She inspires with her photography.  Her pictures are just remarkable and make you long to visit the places she photographs.  Kaitlyn not only has great recipes but she provides a lot of useful information on her blog.  She is very informative about anything from aprons to beer.  She also takes good pictures of her food.  Just love her.  Violets blog is like a magazine.  It covers all of the topics.  Anything from food, beauty, fashion, great photography and it is some of the best writing out there.  Also I think she might be on a quest to master Peruvian cooking.  I love her blog for all that she shares with us.  I connect with Rachael because of her love for art which is also a love of mine.  She inspires me to get up and go paint when she shares her artwork.  She has also shared some wonderful recipes!

Congratulations to all of my fellow bloggers you deserve this award.  Thanks for all of your kindness and support and most of all, for all of the wonderful things that you share with the rest of us!

    I want to thank you for always taking the time to visit my blog. You are consistent and you are supportive. I truly appreciate that.

    I have received quite a few of these awards and I suppose I don’t play fair as I don’t quite follow the rules. I hope you can forgive me. I have placed you on my “E-Buddies” page on my site so that my readers can visit your lovely blog!

    Thank you for making my day!!!!!

    Congrats to you, friend! May the sunshine be ever warm in you! And I completely agree with what you said about Lori; a Light in this world, for sure!

    Loved reading facts about you. I, too, can not get enough of sweet-tea! It’s the perfect drink, refreshing and also feels like a treat.🙂

    Congratulations Donna! Another well deserved award for your delightful blog.

    I’ve been away from blogging and baking for quite some time now, so it’s great to come back to your lovely surprise. Thanks so much for thinking about my little blog and including me in your list of nominees. Will take me some time to pass on the award but meanwhile Congratulations again to you and every one of my fellow awardees.
