Reassured (and another award!)

First things first:

THANKS! To all of you who took the time to respond to my post about my giveaway, I really, REALLY appreciate the feedback. I did post the giveaway on a couple of hops or whatever you want to call them that listed giveaways. I think I just need to hold it open longer next time and keep promoting it. Thanks so much for all of the reassurance. You guys are great!! It's amazing to me how you can build relationships and feel connected to people you have never met. THAT is why I blog! Well, that and to keep from going crazy!! It's a tie...

Next on my list of things I can't forget to talk about, I got another award! Another dear reader gave me the Sunshine Award! Looks like I now get to pick 12 more readers to give the award to, which is great because it was really hard last week to narrow it down to just 12! Thanks so much to Deana at Mom's The Glue for giving me this award! I am new to your blog but look forward to reading more!

"The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”

Of course, awards come with rules…
1. Put the logo on your blog and/or within your post.
2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and the link to the person from whom you received this award

Here are my 12 choices for this award:

All of these lovely ladies have blogs that I love to following along with. Whether it be the funny things that happen day to day, or recipes, or (my favorite) encouragement to be a Godly woman, I am inspired by these blogs.


  1. Hey thanks again for the reward! :) It seems to be going 'round and 'round.
    And I enjoyed your hair update. I really look forward to hearing more. If it goes well who knows...maybe I'll try it. (especially if it gets rid of the itch! :))

  2. Thank you so much! How exciting and what an honor to be listed among your 12.

    God bless you!


  3. Thank you so much!! Let me know how those cookies turn out for you. Just give them plenty of time to set up :)
    btw...I think your blog is pretty special too!!

  4. Aww...thanks S&S. That made me smile. Oh and I know these cookies well...I make them a LOT. I just have never made them with the natural peanut butter and sugar alternative. I look forward to getting them to be perfectly yeast-free.

  5. Wow! Thank you! That is the sweetest thing. I think it is going to be hard to narrow this down to 12 to pass it to. I'm so honored to be included.

  6. Awww...Jamie! Thank you so much!

    That is so sweet of you, and I'm feel incredibly honored that you thought of me to award! Thank you!!

  7. Hi,
    I'm sorry for the late reply. Thanks for awarding me with such a great award! I am honored..

    Thank You..
