An Award & Ten Things

Over the last few days, I’ve received two blog awards and so today I’d like to say thank you for one of them and share it. And in my next post I will share the other award. The first award is from Tink at Tinkerbell. She has a wonderful and magical blog, so please do stop by when you can and visit her. Thank you Tink for passing this award along to me!

The award is the ‘A Blog With Substance’ award and I’m truly honored to receive it.


The rules are:
1) Thank the blogger that gave you the award.
2) Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation,& experience using ten words.
3) Pass the award on to ten other blogs.

Okay, so now to sum my blog up in ten words…well. I guess my list would go like this:

1) personal – My blog is about my personal journey

2) truthful – I strive to be real here

3) gratitude – I hope that my gratitude for life shows through

4) happiness – Even though no one’s life is happy every day, I hope I share some joy here

5) nature – I love sharing photos of nature, from here in England and back home in Georgia

6) life – I do my best to celebrate life here

7) love – My love for Brit Boy and my family is here and I hope that love is always seeping into the cracks everywhere here :-)

8) journeys – Well Brit Boy and I always share our trips & the life journey is fun too!

9) colorful – I hope that my photos are representative of this

10) beauty – I have used hope a lot in describing my list and it isn’t really from a place of doubt. It’s because I love that word ‘hope’, because it is an optimistic word to me. And I hope that my love for the beauty of people and the world somehow comes through in my blog :-)

I followed the rules a bit and gave my ten words, even though I know I wrote other words. But hey, what can I do…I love words ;-)

I couldn’t decide upon ten blogs because I find so many blogs of substance out there nearly every day. So in order to share this award, I’d like to give this award to all of you out there reading this. Thanks for reading. Feel free to take this award and pass it along to the many blogs that you love :-)

In my next post, I’ll post the other award and it asks for me to reveal if there is one thing in my life that I would change. Hmmm. I’ve got my thinking cap on….until next time :-)

I just found your blog through the blogher network. Your title captured my attention. I just moved from Minnesota to California and live in a yellow house. I thought about changing my blog name to something about a yellow house. Moving here, although in still in America is quite a change. I can't say I love it. I would rather be in the english country side. Therefore, I shall follow. It seems we have the same philosophy of our blogging. Many blessings. Thanks for sharing your truths, and your journey.

Lis,
Thank you so much for your kind words :)

Mike,
You're welcome and big hugs back to you too :)

Soul Reporter,
Thanks for visiting me. I'm thrilled to have a new commenter and visitor :) How cool that you live in a yellow house also. I know what you mean about the changes when moving. It's not easy. Sometimes even after four years of living here, I have wobbles and I get homesick big time :)So I can relate to what you wrote. I will be visiting you too. It's always great to find a blogging kindred spirit out there :) And thanks for following. Many blessings to you too!

Nieves,
Thanks :) Lots of hugs to you too!

Roschelle,

MissChicago,
I'm so glad you enjoy your visits here. Thanks so much! :)

Mike,
Okay Mike! :) Thanks!

Mountain Woman,
You are so kind! Thank you. I love visiting you too! :)

Jennifer,
Thank you :) That's what I hope for each time I post here. I know that life has its ups and downs, so I try to fall somewhere in the middle as much as I can :) Hugs to you.
