A Little Sunshine

I've been nominated for the Sunshine Award! Rhetta from On Raspberry Hill nominated me for this award, which gives recognition to the blogs that put a smile on your face and add a little sunshine to your day. And seriously, Rhetta, that was SO sweet of you. You totally just put a smile on MY face. :)

So yes, I will very happily accept the award. Thank you! And so I have a few questions to answer for you. Here goes:

  1. Favorite Color - Green. Always green.
  2. Favorite Animal - None. Next question. I'm not an animal person. But if I had to choose I would say penguins or ponies. Because penguins are so funny, and because I fully intend to retire to a pony farm someday where my grandkids will come stay with me during the summer.
  3. Favorite Number - 12. Because I was born on 12/12. So this year on 12/12/12 at 12:12 it will be my super-mega-ultra-lightning-birthday-moment. How can that not be my favorite number? Plus I have a twin so it's like my double favorite number.
  4. Favorite Drink -  Chocolate Milk. Yes, I am a grown woman.
  5. Facebook or Twitter - Facebook. No twitter here. :)
  6. Good Book or Good Movie - Both please. I love books and movies equally. And it is a lot.
  7. My Passion - My family, yard sales, Jesus, and making things.
  8. Giving or Getting Gifts - Am I a terrible person if I say both? Because it's definitely both. 
  9. Favorite Day - Christmas. Duh.
  10. Favorite Flower - Tulips.
And now for the Rules of the Sunshine Award:
1) Thank the person who took time out to give you the award - and link back to them.
2) Answer the 10 questions about yourself.
3) Forward this award on to 10 other bloggers - and let them know you have done so! (Or, you know, less than 10. Don't do anything that makes you panic like talking to a whole bunch of strangers in one day. Just saying.)
4) Copy and paste the award onto your site.

 And now it's time to share the love. Here are a few of the blogs that lift me up and put a smile on my face. No pressure to continue the award, I just want to you know how much I enjoy you and your blogs! My nominations for the Sunshine Award:

  • Anna @ Active Fingers - one of my closest friends, blogging about life as music teacher and craft enthusiast (and the yummy things she cooks along the way).
  • Raechel @ Finding My Feet - my cousin-in-law who also has a passion for design, crafting, and her super cute kiddies.
  • Jen @ insideways - okay, I don't actually know Jen, but she also loves home improvement and DIY and hers is one of my very favorite blogs. And she built pipe shelves that I dream about. So there you go.
  • Amy @ Homestead Revival - one of my new favorite blogs all about natural living, homemaking, and basically going back to the roots of caring for your home & family in a self sufficient way.
Whew. Glad that's over. Thanks to all you ladies for brightening my day with your posts, and thank you Rhetta for the Nomination!


  1. Congratulations! It fits you very well.
