Pretty sunshine for me!

Thursday morning, I woke up and started my very busy day with a really sweet surprise.  Yenta Mary over at Food Floozie had been by earlier that morning to visit and left a little a gift for me.  What a great way to start my day!  She very kindly honored me by passing on one of her many awards to me. 

I was delighted to say the least! 
Want to know why? 

When you get one of these awards, the best part about it is that you have to share the love by passing it on to others.  I love that part!   There are so many wonderful blogs out there that I really would like to give every award to every one of them; but since some have already been recognized, I really like to pass it on to those that haven't received the recognition yet....blogs that have brightened my day with their words or photos.

Now I got to choose for myself from Yenta Mary's wonderful awards which one that I wanted to receive. 

I chose the:

Why did I choose this one, you ask? 

First of all, it's the prettiest one.   I've been seeing it around the blogosphere and it always catches my eye.  Aren't the colors beautiful?

Secondly, that's what receiving the award brought into my life......sunshine!

Last but not least, the blogs that I want to recognize have brought Sunshine into my life so what better way to honor my new blog loves than with this pretty award, right?  Right!

So the rules of this award are pretty simple....and I like simple....

Of course, you should always thank the person who gave me the award.   That's just good manners!

Thank you, Yenta Mary!

Put the award on your blog {check}
Pass the award on to 5 bloggers and link to them in your post.  I will do that right now.  These are 5 bloggers that I don't think have been recognized with this award yet and have brought sunshine into my life:
Brenda Susan @ Walking Butterfly
Please take a minute to visit these wonderful blogs and show them some love and while you're out visiting, hop on over and say "hi" to Yenta Mary. You will be glad you did.
