To those of you reading this, I just want to say thank you. Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read my words, whether they are rambling, random, silly, or pondering. Thank you for stopping to notice a little part of me. When I first started this blog, I really wasn't sure if anyone's eyes would ever see it, but stepped out on a limb just to simply have a place to outlet some thought and creativity. But as time has gone on, some really wonderful people have decided to follow, and I don't even know how it happened -- but to the friends I know personally and to my new blog friends, your time and kind-hearted comments have not gone unnoticed, and it means a lot to me. I have some of the sweetest followers, who are also very talented and share such inspiring things on their own blogs!
Again, thank you, dear readers. You're the best!
So, a couple of really talented and generous people thought of me, and mentioned me on their blogs. One is Andie from heartbeat melody, which is such a pretty blog! She gave me the "Sweet Blog Award." Wasn't that so nice of her?!
So now what happens is...
1) post the picture
2) link back to the person who gave it to you
3) nominate another ten blogs
4) let them know by leaving a comment
And the lucky winners are....drumroll... toile, domestic godliness, annie banana, inspiration crush, M Loves M, i heart kiwi, Hope Chella, fufflefritz, minestrone soup for the teenage soul, and bonjour j. I love and enjoy reading each and every one of your blogs. Thanks for all the neat things you share!
She also tagged me, as did the lovely Kim from Magpie Eyes, (a fabulous and inspiring blog! btw) in this Abracadabra, Wow! tag. I am to now fill out this fun little number...so, enjoy...
I like boys who are gentlemanly.
and girls who have beautiful hearts and don't care about shaving their legs
I like the peacefulness of early mornings when birds are their chirpiest
I like having picnics and the feel of grass beneath bare feet
I like finding book inscriptions and imagining who wrote them
I like the smell of bread
I like learning new things, and wisdom above knowledge
I like pretty dresses, hair bows, RED lipstick, and sweat pants
I like going to far away places, meeting new people, and traveling through time -- all through the magic of the written word
I like coffee in the morning and tea at night
I like giving gifts for no reason other than simply wanting to
I like finally learning the words to a song that you really want to sing along with
I like old couples in love
I love being blessed by such amazing loved-ones in my life!
Today I rummaged through second-hand books and wished I could take them all home with me.
In some ways, I love everything.Its less, its less of a thing to like, its less distinct, its less particular. I like things that I like but I love everything. There’s more choice in like, Cos even the worst things have things you love in them.I don’t know what you mean about things I hate.
I hate buying gas
I hate the lies of this world
I hate being held back by fear and insecurity
I hate burning myself with a curling iron
I hate bad days when I feel gross and unlovely
I hate losing one shoe
I hate rudeness, insincerity, arrogance, and belittlement
I hate scary movies
I hate this, wow...
Now, daily bread with emily, a mulier termino, this pretty little world, boom! pow! exciting adventures of the lipperts!...GO! it's your turn...
