How wonderful….blog awards!

Merry Meet my friends!  I sure hope that all of you are surviving this Winter we are having! Seems like no matter where you live, you are having colder, wetter, snowier, windier and icier weather this year!  (not sure those are all real words but you know what I mean LOL)   I love Winter as you all know and I still do. I think this amazing weather we’re having is Mother Earth making an adjustment for some of the mild Winters we’ve had in the past several years.  At least where I live that is the case.  It’s a good thing 🙂  Spring will come….really…it will!!

I’m posting today because I was honored to receive two blog awards…both awards awarded to me by two different friends and fellow bloggers!  I was thrilled!!  The first friend, Vickie Lesperance over at this blog http://www.aoibhealslair.com/not-just-one-but-two-awards/

and then my friend Johanna Lawson over at this blog http://johanna-villagewisewoman.blogspot.com/2014/02/its-major-award-or-two.html both honored me with the awards.  Thank you so much to both of you!!! Hugs!!!  Oh and to my readers, if you aren’t familiar with these blogs, you might want to be 🙂 They are wonderful!!

Now, my job is to do what the awards ask me to do….and then pass them on to other bloggers I feel are deserving of them.  So here goes.
