I know it's actually been a couple of days since the first day of Spring now, but today I am really feeling it!! My daughter brought me the first of (surely many) my Crocus' to peek through the earth...instant smile :D I love being able to put fresh flowers in the house! So, the sun is shining, I have fresh flowers, all is well on the homestead....PLUS I received 3 awards (!!yay!!) from one of my favorite foodbloggers, Donna-FFW of My Tasty Treasures!! Many of you know Donna already, but if by some chance you've yet to find her blog which is chock-full of humor, gorgeous men and food, Food, FOOD... find your way there by clicking here or anytime by clicking her My Tasty Treasures button on the right side of my blog!
I have been blogging for about a month and a half now (really, that's it?)...and thanks to the great, GREAT community of foodie-bloggers out here, I have learned so much! It's really been about diving in head first and seeing if I can swim. Food has always been one of my passions...I love photography (and try the best I can with my run of the mill digital camera...love u camera)...and I love to learn! Seriously, I'm a perpetual student of the world; I NEVER want to lose my zest for learning and hope my heart and my mind are always open to what others have to offer.
With all my heart, I want to thank Donna...these awards mean so much to me! Now it's my turn to share the love. It almost pains me to have to "choose" people to pass these awards along to because every one of the food-bloggers I've come in contact with has inspired me in their own little way.
FRIENDS... comes with the following description to be added & passed along: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.” It also says : "Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Okay, only 8!? I want to try to space these awards out among everybody who has supported me. These 8 bloggers have encouraged me by leaving comments and/or offering to help me along the beginning stages of my journey, so far:
This award I'm going to pass along more people who have inspired me:
Please take the time to check out all of these great blogs at some point or another...you won't be disappointed!
