The Lovely Award says the following: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.
I am to deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.” So I am happy to pass this along to Janna @ Mustard Seeds, Ashley @ The Ingram Gang, Ashley @ The Happily Ever After of the Lancasters, Susan @ Penless Writer, Jenny @ The Winstead Family, Pearl @ Pearls Sentimental Journey,Rachel @ The Crazy Carellis Chronicle, and Demetria @ The Only Girl Here.
I have also been blessed by getting to know and becoming friends with Ms. Ashley this year. She is a doll. I just adore her. When we found one another, via bloggyland, we were both like, "Oh my goodness, I can't believe it's you, I've heard all about you. I feel like I know you." And we actually got the opportunity to meet over the Christmas holidays. Hugh and I met she and Kurt for dinner at P.F. Chang's. We had a wonderful time. Our husbands are very good friends and I look forward to having them visit, when they come down for Ole Miss games. She has kindly awarded me the following
