Sunshine Award

I am so excited to have been nominated for a Sunshine award by the oh-so-sweet Lori DiNardi! The Sunshine Award is given to a blogger that brings a ray of sunshine to their readers’ lives. I am so hopeful that I can do that for each and every one of you, and I thank you all for sticking with me and posting all of the lovely comments you make – they bring a ray of sunshine to my day! Here are some questions that go along with the Sunshine Award nomination.

Favorite colors: Robin’s Egg Blue and Eggplant Purple

Favorite animal: dogs (particularly my 2 sweeties)

Favorite number: 16 (date my husband and I got married)

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Coffee!

Prefer facebook or twitter: I guess Facebook….not a big social media gal

My Passion: My family and cooking….and sharing stories and thoughts from both here on my blog :)

Prefer getting or giving presents: To be perfectly honest….both! I love searching for the perfect gift for my loved ones, but I ain’t gonna lie, I love opening them too!

I would like to pass this award on to several people who brighten my day every time I visit their blogs:

Blog Feature: Kayotic Kitchen

I love it when find a blog or website that really inspires me to try some new recipes. That is exactly what Kayotic Kitchen has done! I discovered it yesterday via pinterest, and I already have tons of her recipes bookmarked! I hope you go over and take a look, and get inspired just like I have!

Blog feature: Lingered Upon

I’ve decided to have a Blog Feature once a month that focuses on one of my favorite blogs. Lingered Upon is one of those blogs. The author, Alice, takes the most beautiful photos, and uses film photography! I love film….I only wish that I had a dark room nearby! The photo above is from her store on, Small Realities.

I hope that this new series of posts will help to expand your blog reading list! There are some absolutely wonderful and beautiful blogs out there, and I hope you visit them!
