Awwww Shucks...

I am honored to say that I have been awarded both the "Thoughtful Blogger Award" and the "Creative Blogger Award" by two different blogging friends...Empress bee and Michele. Apparently these two awards are variations on the same theme and I feel so humbled.

For those unfamiliar with the award, here is a bit of an explanation:

The Thoughtful Blogger Award...For those who answer blog comments, emails, and make their visitors feel at home on their blogs. For the people who take others feelings into consideration before speaking out and who are kind and courteous. Also for all of those bloggers who spend so much of their time helping other bloggers design, improve, and fix their sites. This award is for those generous bloggers who think of others.

Now it's my turn to pass this award to five creative and thoughtful blogging friends who meet these wonderful qualifications. So, without further ado, I'd like to present these awards to:

Linda @ Are We There Yet?
Lynne @ Lynne's Little Corner of the World
Midlife Mom @ Home on the Range
Kelly @ My Utopia
Pea @ Pea's Corner may choose either or both awards if you'd like since you are all both creative AND thoughtful. You are all most worthy and reading your blogs brightens my world each day!
