Lookie What I Got!!!
You all know how ridiculously excited I get just to receive a new comment! Getting a new follower, almost too much for me to handle! So getting an award, well there are no words to describe. Except, maybe..."Bliss"! My new and sweet-as-pie blog friend (heck, why do I say "blog" friend, you all are just my true friends!) Laura at White Spray Paint has chosen me to receive the Lemonade Attitude of Gratitude Award to which I am eternally grateful. For those of you who don't know Laura, please do yourself a huge favor and visit her amazing blog. She is so talented, yet tremendously humble. Just a real "lady" who oozes class and sophistication. Okay, have I gushed enough? Can you tell I adore this woman?

You all mean so much to me. Thanks for being there for me, for your encouraging words, for caring enough to read my posts, for leaving me such sweet comments, for sharing your creativity, for opening up your homes and lives for me to get a glimpse! I am so blessed and so grateful for each and every one of you. This blogging thing has become such a huge part of my life - a place where I feel safe and know that I can trust the people that I'm opening myself up to. It's such a great feeling and something that I look forward to so much. It has opened my eyes in ways that I never could have imagined. Seeing that there are so many other sincere and caring Christian women out there who share the same interests. How many times have I read one of your profiles and said to myself, "that's exactly how I feel!". You have encouraged me to think outside of the box that I have been hiding in for all of these years - opening my creative side wide open. And finally, and probably most importantly, helping me to realize that I don't have to be perfect. I've come to not only accept, but embrace my flaws and the flaws of my home, and let me tell you that is so enormously liberating. So thank you thank you thank you - ALL of you! I am forever grateful!!!!
