Stylish Blogger Award

It was a nice surprise to wake up this morning to discover that my friend, Elaine, from California Living had bestowed upon me the "Stylish Blogger Award."  Thank you, Elaine! 

Elaine's blog is a wonderful place I visit on a daily basis.  She's one of the most thoughtful bloggers I know.. sharing her passions in life, her many adventures (she has the most interesting day-trips!), and is always, always an inspiration to me.  I don't know how she does it, but she always finds the coolest blogs and 'things' that always appeal to me.  I do hope you will check out her blog.  It's well worth making frequent visits!

As part of my acceptance of this award requires me to do a couple things...

First, a big thank you again to Elaine for giving me this award.  I love you dearly. 

Second, I have to share 7 things about myself:

1.  I have had a wonderful partner for nearly 15 years.
2.  We have four cats, Martha, Riko, Cinnamon, Sirius
3.  I'm a news junkie. 
4.  I love to learn new things. 
5.  Patience is not one of my greatest strengths
6.  I fell in love with Upstate New York a couple years ago. 
7.  I love making my own jams and jellies

Lastly, it's my pleasure to recognize other blogs and bloggers and award them their own Stylish Blogger Award:

Eddie Ross

While the preference is that I recognize 15 blogs, I don't follow 15!  I'm always happy to recommend blogs I enjoy most!

I hope you'll visit the blogs I've listed above.  I do on a regular basis and they are always and source of great inspiration!

I am truly touched Kenn. Thank you. 'Tis the season for awards I think. You know - you wait ages for one and then two come along at the same time! Congratulations - Elaine is right - you have a very stylish blog!

Well, my goodness, we won't talk about how many blogs I read...;) I probably spend way too much time reading blogs, but I can't help myself because I enjoy visiting people from all over the world and I have learned so much in the process. Thank you for the wonderful words about my blog, Kenn. Your blog was one of the first ones I started reading and inspired me to start one. You keep us informed on Martha, John and Dr. Brent, and what is going on in your corner of the world. I love visiting here and I always feel like I am sitting down to an afternoon cup of coffee and good conversation with my friend. XO

Okay, I have my husband on my mind since I am waiting for him to come home from dinner... because I said John in my comment instead of Josh. Sheesh! :)


Thanks for the recognition, Kenn!! I always keep you and your blog in mind when I post. House Blend is a beautiful place!
