Smiles all Around

Oh my goodness!! Yesterday I took little break from blogging to enjoy being out in the beautiful sunshine and playing with my hubby and son....pure bliss!
So this morning when I open up my site, I was completely blown away by the fact that I had been given the You Make Me Smile award by FOUR of my dear new friends here in bloggityville. Michelle @ Vintage Pastiche', Angie @ Scrappy Moments, Linda @ Somewhere In Time and Melissa @ The Inspired Room.
I will spare you the "you like me, you really like me" speech. Only Sally Field can pull that one off. But I am so touched to know that others enjoy "being in my company" as much as I enjoy being in theirs.
Now it is my turn to pass on the honor.
1 & 2) Kari & Kijsa @ Ask Kari & Kijsa for all of their creative ideas and Diet Coke obsession:)
3) Polly @ Counting Your Blessings. Polly is the reason I found blogging in the first place, and I love to stop over everyday and read her words of inspiration.
4) Meggie @ Meggie's Stuff, she is a precious red hatter and I love her new banner of petunias and butterflies.
5) Priscilla @ Flea Market Queen, her goodies always bring a smile to my face.
6) Mary @ The Little Red House, such a lovely person and her photos are always so beautiful one can't help but
7) Dena @ Swaddle Cottage, the Halloween music she has playing makes me giggle.
8) Brenda @ Country Romance, she is very family oriented, just like me.
9) Ann @ Georgian Dream, Ann is my new friend who lives in a beautiful home, Cannondale, near the Amish in Pennsylvania.
10) Alison @ The Brocante Home, I have only lately found Alison's site and I am so grateful that I did. Finding another kindred spirit in the world always makes me smile.
I hope today someone makes you feel as special as Michelle, Angie, Linda, and Melissa made me feel today. Thank you ladies, you have really touched my heart.

YEA!! Yipeee! Swing your partner round and round! We are dancing a jig (and at the same time raising our glasses of diet coke in a toast-a true balancing act!)

We can't believe how much we love blogging and the friends we have met! You make us smile, so we are so glad to return th favor! A true honor indeed!
