Some Awarded Bliss
Two lovely bloggy friends bestowed upon me some awards last weekend. I know, awards eh?? Pretty sweet--Everyone loves knowing that something they do makes others happy, and well, today i feel pretty honoured. But i first have a little work ahead of me, to accept these awards...
The first award is the 'Sunshine Award' from Rabea at EllaBellaMozzarella. Kind of ironic- while she gave me this award for my blog 'brightening' her day, i should turn around and give it right back to her! I mean, who can't be happy when reading a blog called EllaBellaMozzarella?? Just sounds like too much fun!
The rules are as follows:
~Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
~Pass the award onto 12 bloggers.
~Link the nominees within your post.
~Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
~Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
Here is my list of 12 blogs that brighten my day, each and every time i visit! (In no particular order)
