I was also thrilled to receive the Sunshine Award from Mochi of the lovely blog matchamochimoo Please visit her blog, there are fantastic recipes and beautiful photo’s. Thank you so very much for the award.
I am acknowledging the wonderful bloggers who gave me these awards, thank you Fae, elamb and Mochi. I truly appreciate it, I don’t have time to do all of the things asked of me and I feel badly about that but I do want you to know how very much I appreciate this and I wanted to acknowledge other blogs (bloggers) that I love and find inspiration from.
Thank you everyone!!
When I worked on my post last night I clamored to list blogs that I love and visit all the time, I want to mention a few more blogs that are beautiful and full of great recipes. So in the interest of making this brief here are a few more blogs that I love and are deserved of awards. There are so many great blogs I couldn’t stop with the ones mentioned in the previous post. You have to visit these also, they are amazing. How can I just pick a few when there are so many that are so wonderful. You can pay it forward if you like but no obligation I just wanted to add you because I admire and love your blogs. I think it’s important for everyone who visits here to get to know you also.

Thank you so much for the Reality Award, Yippee is right. I think that the reason any of us spend the time and energy on our blogs is because we love what we are doing, enjoy the companionship of those of a like mind and we hope that the contribution as small as it may be has touched or helped someone.
Thank you Crystal, if you haven’t visited or know about Crystals blog Crystal Nuding you should visit it. It’s friendly and uplifting, life affirming and I look forward to many more posts from her.

7 things about myself you may or may not know:
1. I’m currently reading “Fifty Shades of Gray” (blush)
2. I was told Annette Funicello is my 3rd cousin on my fathers side
3. In case you haven’t guessed I am Italian
4. My dream would be to own a farm or place in the country and turn it into an animal shelter
5. My favorite author is Stephen King and favorite genre of film is horror
6. I collect cake stands and mugs (for coffee and tea)
7. I cook for my dogs every day and less often for me
This next part is always the hardest for me, there are so many blogs and bloggers that I visit pretty much daily to see what they are up to and gain inspiration. I’ll name 7 but really everyone reading this is award worthy.
