Sunshine Blogger Award

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Natasha at simplydurant.com go on over to her blog and show her some love. She deserves it and her blog is amazing. I subscribed right away and have been following her blog ever since.

When I saw that she had nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award, I was shocked, surprised, and a little in awe that someone who had never met me before nominated me for an award. Thank you so much Natasha for thinking of me. I truly means a lot to me and I hope that we can continue to be blogging friends. She asked some really great questions of her nominees and I bounced around for a few days trying to figure out how to best answer them.
