All Inspiring

I have baked you a valentine heart and I wish I could pass it along...instead I will pass it on in another shape and form. I recently received 'The Sunshine Award' from the very lovely Melinda @ The Inveterate Optimist. It was very thoughtful of her and I thank her most kindly. As with all awards I have instructions to follow and today I will do a bit of that and a bit more. 

~Sunshine Award~

'The Sunshine Award' is "awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world." My instructions are as follows: 
1. Post the award on the blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees in a post.
4. Let nominees know they have won this award by commenting on their blogs.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you've received this award.

~Inspiring Friends~

To this I am adding my own Step 6. There are many new faces that have come across my blogs lately. I often read one and think of another who has similar interests or passions and think it would be great if they could connect. This is my attempt to do so. When you have a moment, stop in and say hello.
So, now I am going to do two things.  First, I will mention my twelve followers who I must thank for the sunshine they regularly bring to me. Secondly, I will mention the new and familiar faces who I hope you will take the time to get to know. Every one of you brings positivity and creativity to the blogging world and especially to me.

  1. Thank you, Jeanne, that's ever so kind, and congratulations on your own award from Melinda! And I like your idea of connecting bloggers of similar interests. It's turning into more of a party every day! I'll start urgently making more canapés.

  2. Jeanne that's a gorgeous award, thank you beaucoup énormément ;-) I like the idea too of connecting people with similar interests and it's wonderful to get people out there together. One thing's for sure, with blogging you're never lonely! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY. I think we should organise a bloggeuses trip somewhere where we could all meet up one day... Now there's a thought! Some of these recipes are just getting to mouthwateringly irresistable not to taste for real!

  3. Jeanne, that is so very sweet of you! Thank you so much. Congratulations on your own award. You bring such beauty into our lives with your posts and lovely images.

  4. Jeanne, thank you so much for the lovely award. I'm intrigued by all these wonderful new blogs...I'll have to bookmark this post and keep coming back to visit them. The blogosphere is the most divine labyrinth! Meredy xo.

  9. Aww Jeanne! That was so thoughtful of you. I am indeed honoured by the award. I think that it is a great idea to connect bloggers of similar interests, as Mise mentioned. I shall get to know each of them by and by.

    Blogging is something special to me as I meet splendid bloggers as you and get to partake of their cup of life.
