The Sunshine Award


Any award is a welcome gift.  An award given by someone you like and respect is extra special. When that award has fun stuff attached to it, well, that’s just plain fabulous!

The Sunshine Award is an award given by bloggers to other bloggers. (Sort of like the Oscars, right?)  The recipients of the Sunshine Award are: “Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogoshere.”  (I’ll take that!)

So…an enormous thank you to Nel from The PaperCup Kitchen, across the ocean in the UK! If you don’t know her, you must pay her a visit.  You will love and be inspired by her.  Read her profile and you will see the depth of this wife, mother, and baker.  Thanks also to Ann from Sumptuous Spoonfuls.  Ann, in addition to sharing my name, shares my love of delicious salads and constantly impresses me with her culinary creativity and generosity towards others.  Visit her, too, if you haven’t already.

Now, the rules: Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them. Answer 10 questions about yourself. Select 10 of your favorite bloggers, link their blogs to your post and let them know they have been awarded the Sunshine Award! Don’t forget to copy and paste the award on your blog!

 So here are my answers… ;)

1. Favorite color: Blue (to clarify since there are so many shades–like the sky on a sunny day.)
2. Favorite animal: orangutan–they always look like they’re having the most fun at the zoo!
3. Favorite number: 13 (I know, it’s supposed to be unlucky!)
4. Favorite drink: latte
5. Facebook or Twitter: Facebook. I have a Twitter account now but haven’t figured out how to use it.  (Help welcome!)
6. Good Book or a Good Movie: If they’re good, both!
7. My Passion: This was Nel’s answer, too:  Family.  They are the motivation behind so many of life’s other passions and pleasures and make every day special.
8. Giving or getting presents: Giving.  I get so excited when I find something I know a friend or family member will like.  Sometimes, I see the perfect birthday card for someone and hold it for months until the actual birthday comes along.
9. Favorite day of the year:  Today…

10. Favorite flowers: Three-way tie among tulips, hydrangeas, and daisies.  Oh, let’s just say four-way tie and add lilacs!

And now, to pass this along to 10 other bloggers. I have many more than 10 to give this to…but rules are rules…

1. Brianne from Cupcakes and Kale Chips
2. Justine from Full Belly Sisters
3. Shayla from Made from Scratch
5. Debi from Recipes for My Boys
7. Valerie from From Valerie’s Kitchen
8. Mia from Mia’s Domain
9. Ally from Ally’s Kitchen
10. Sara from My Imperfect Kitchen


Thank you again for the award, Nel!  You are all a bright ray of sunshine in my day!
