Award time

Okay...I am sorry that I didn't post last night...I was some kinda tired when I got home last night and just couldn't being myself to post...
so without further adieu...from the wonderful Teresa over at The Middle Side of Life honored me with

Here are the rules:

1. Tell you who gave it to me. done and she's most fabulous..if you don't know her you really should...she is amazingly talented and honest and just very encouraging.
2. Put up a link to their blog.
3. Pay it Forward to five more bloggers. 
Well, this one has been making the rounds so I know that many of you have gotten this one...so if I repeat just know it's cause you are pretty fantastic!!
First up, This is me at southhamsdarling.  She shares an amazing part of the world with us every day.  She leaves the best comments and takes beautiful pictures...you should check her out- I promise she's not really leaving like she says she is....at least if enough of us tell her not to she has to come back...
Tress over at Jumble Mash- she's getting married and has just recently started a second blog.  She's pretty fun over there- you should totally check her out....
Jilda over at Transformation Information I have found her blog recently.  She is inspiring and she has great insights....
Mynx over at Dribble she writes whatevers on her mind, is a true artist and hosts a damn good party....her post and the subsequence comments on her 300th post is the reason that I love blogging.
And finally Caterpillar over at Musings and Confessions of a Wandering Mind.  She posts questions that make you think and ponder life in general...which is always fun and a great way of getting to know fellow bloggers...

Barb over at This and That added another rule that you should talk about one person who inspires you in the blog world.  I don't know that I could name just one....all of you inspire me every single day.  Your stories, pictures, art....they feed my heart....your support, friendship and understanding makes me smile and eternally grateful to all of you... the little world that we have created allows me time to sit back and immerse myself in something other than what's going on in my life.....so thank you all for being you, for writing and for reading what I have to say...
hugs and love to you all....

  8. Hi Colenic,
    Dear Thisisme sent me your way and I'm so happy she did. You have a very thoughtful and kind way with words. I will look forward to keeping up with you! Currently I'm in a Blogger mess where they have lost my Follow button and my Followers...sigh. But I am hoping they get it all straightened out and sooner rather than later. Sorry your friend didn't make it, I know how important it is to spend time with those nearest and dearest!
