Thank You For Your Friendship! and Awards to give away....

There are two lovely ladies I want to high light in this post for the kindness and friendship they've shown me over the passed year and a half I've been blogging. Maria @ Winging it at the Bird House, left me one of my very first comments, and has continued to come back with encouraging words. We have developed a true friendship grounded in a love for our savior. She is a beautiful person inside and out, and I am honored to be her friend. She has graciously passed me the following award.

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

The qualifications are:
A. Display a cheerful attitude
B. Love one another
C. Make mistakes
D. Learn from others
E. Be a positive contributor to the blog world
G. Love kids

And the rules:
1. Must link it back to the creator
2. Post the rules
3. Choose 5 people to give it to
4. Recipients must fit the characteristics above

My five are Tiffany @ Tea with Tiffany, Denise @ Shorty Bears, Jess @ Itty, Bitty Bits of Me, Leslie @ Do You Weary Like I Do?, and Maria at Winging It.
Ashley has also started a little business. She is doing paintings for nurseries.

You are so sweet, Tiff! Thanks a million for the sweet advertising. I looked at the little sweater and hat that you brought Evy when I was pregnant and I can't wait for her to wear it this fall/winter. Talk to you soon, friend! :o)
