Now for the fun part, passing the award on to some of my favorite bloggers!
First is Terri at PennyAnnPoundwise. Her blog reminds me that saving money and living a simple life is fun, which makes me smile. I enjoy her money saving ideas and inventive ways of looking at things.
Next is Susan at A Peaceful Valley. Her two little boys and adorable cats make me smile. I also enjoy her creative writing and interesting blog entries. I feel like I am peeking in the window of her home with each post.
Third is Rhonda at A Home with a Smile. The name of her blog says it all. Whether it is a fabulous thrift store find or an fun craft project, her light-hearted posts are a joy to read.
Fourth is Monica at The Homespun Heart. I have counted her blog as one of my favorites many times. Monica's energy and love for her family is evident in her blog. Her love for the Lord shines through as well. With the smiling faces of her little ones, how could I help but not smile too.
Finally is Elise at Nest Sweet Nest. Elise is a new blogger like myself. Her blog is becoming one of my favorite reads. Being new to the blogging world myself, I smile at seeing others join in.
Thank you again to Megan for the unexpected award. It is fun to know others are enjoying my blog and the silliness that is my life!
