The Sweetest Award!

Thank you, Bryce!

Yesterday, I was given this awesomely yummy award by
If you've not yet met him or visited his blog, I definitely recommend you do so.
He is a groovy dude.  You will enjoy his writing, pictures (both past and present) and his wittyness, which comes in generous doses.  Please pop on over and get to know him, you'll be glad you did.
Bryce, thank you, thank you, thank you!   :)

And now, a few sweet rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Include 7 random tidbits about yourself.
3. Pass award on to 5 others and link to their blogs.
4. Let the people know you've given them the award.  

Seven Random Tidbits:
(And because I'm a visual person, I'm adding pictures!) 

1. Running makes me laugh, being chased makes me laugh even harder. 
(sorry, I have no pictures for this one)
2. I met my husband at the Olive Garden.

3. I prefer stormy/cloudy days over sunny days.

4. I buy my shoes in the kids department.

5. We had a pet squirrel once.  His name was Peanut, 
we raised him from a baby.

6. I adore events that require you to dress up, 
our last potluck was Super Hero themed.

7.  I've recently come to realize that Neil Diamond's greatest hits, is like the soundtrack for my childhood.

And there you have it!  Me, in a random nutshell!

Just Desserts:
And now to pass this lovely award on to 5 other sweet bloggers.

Firstly, to Robin, she was one of the first bloggers I met and she is definitely very sweet. She too, is an artist and is also on the road to writing and discovery.  She's fantastic and I have truly enjoyed getting to know her better. 

Next is Noemi, whom I also adore.  She lives in Spain and makes gorgeous jewelry that she sells on Etsy.  She is a lovely and tremendously sweet spirit.  

Tara is the epitome of sweet.  Her blog is full of poetry, tidbits of very useful information, flash fiction, comics and jokes.  She is bright and sunny, and always makes sure to share her bit of sunshine with everyone.    

Kristen is a blogger that I've very recently met.  She is hosting the Summer of Color, which I'm hoping to participate in, but have yet to.  Her blog is filled with goodies for the eyes and the soul.  She is very talented and her blog is also rather informative.  I'm loving it.  

Daniele has an amazing blog, filled with her gorgeous artwork, passion, photography and wonderful honesty.  I've only just found her blog, but I truly admire her boldness and creativity.  

It was difficult to choose only 5 blogs to pass this on to.  Please take a moment to check them all out, they're all filled with beauty, passion and sweetness.  
I'm certain you will enjoy them as much as I do.  

Have a sweet weekend and to all of you dads out there, 
A very happy and wonderful Father's Day to you!  


  1. YOU are the Sweetest. what nice words you wrote for me! thank you!

  2. You really deserved this award. Loved reading your post, and now I am off to meet these wonderful and sweet people. I do too get some of my shoes and clothes at the kids department, I am a petit lady.
    Thank you!

  3. You are so incredible! Thank you so much! Your words are so kind and make me feel loved! I think you are just awesome! I like the tidbits you posted about yourself. Great pics too!!! Thank you for sharing.

    On a side note: I cannot buy anything in the kids department for myself, I think I actually outgrew (by size, not taste!) the kids department when I was about 10...I'm tall!!!

  4. Dressing up as a superhero? = Awesome.
    Neil Diamond music = Also awesome.

  5. No way. We have a lot in common. I raised a squirel from a baby too. His name was Archamedes...the smaller the animal the larger the name. I added pictures to my sweet award too, but mine is posting on Monday. I also love art and dressing up in costumes. Nice to meet you Heather.

  6. oh thank you!!! You are so sweet. And you and your hubs are way cute! I will get to this eventually (I hope not too long) and I will totally check out the other blogs you listed! I can't wait to take some more time and read your blog with more attention! I will, promise!

  7. oh my goodness, I just realized that I was signed in under a diff account. This is Daniele (CreatingLearningFlying!)

  8. now i'm tagging you =)
    come and play!

  9. You are more than welcome, Heather.
    Like I said, you were a no-brainer for the award!

    Have a great week!

  10. Hi Tara, I think you are such a super sweetie, and very deserving of this sweetest award! Thanks for the tag, I will come and check it out!

    Noemi, thank you so much! You too are such a sweetie.
    I don't buy kids clothes, I'm not quite that petite, but my feet are super small.

    Thank you Robin, I think you are very awesome too. I would really like to do ATC's with you! Maybe we should start a blog ATC group. That would be really cool.
    I wish I was a bit taller, I think I stopped growing when I was 10, haha!!
    "We represent the Lollipop Guild" a little munchkin humor.

    Teachinfourth. I totally agree! Superheroes are epic! In the past two months I've been Rogue and Phoenix. Both fun.
    Neil Diamond, is the bomb!

    Laila, it is awesome to meet you too. I love meeting kindreds. I love that your pets have long names. Archemedes, always makes me think of the disney version of Robin Hood. I will have to see if I can locate some of our squirrel pictures and scan them in. He was a character.

    Daniele, I kind of thought that was you! Do you not use that blog anymore? I am looking forward to seeing your 7 random answers too. I will pop by when I'm done here. yay!!

    Bryce, you are awesome. So glad I've had a chance to get to know you!

  11. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry I'm late in seeing this - I'm online all the time lately ;) but I almost missed your sweet award and post! I'm so honored that you thought of me! You are so sweet! And I love your notes about yourself too - the olive garden meeting (you are such a cute couple ;) and the shoes from the kids department - LOVE it! Thanks again. It means so much, xoxo

  12. really wonderful blog... glad to have stopped by :)

  13. I get all nostalgic when I hear Neil Diamond too. My mom was a big fan, so I heard a lot of his stuff growing up. I could probably fumble through a few of the lines for you, but lets not allow me to sing it might implode the internet.
