Thank you Train Wreck for this award!
The other day, I received this award from Cowboys, Kids and Sunsets @ http://www.cowboysandsunsets.com/. She told me she had something for me and apologized ... " it's not a vacation on a nice beach! Where the only studs there are cabana boys!!" That's OK...because this is so much more from the heart and deeply appreciated! Thank you Train Wreck, for making my day so much better!
I just discovered this blogging thing about 5 weeks ago, and I have "met" so many wonderful people already! I love to go 'visiting' and see how the rest of the world lives!
So, accoring to the rules, I must choose 5 people to pass this along to. It's tough, because I'm just getting to know so many of you and I enjoy every one of your blogs! (I'm not as literate as Train Wreck so I'll just get to the nitty-gritty!)
First, I want to pass it along to "The Front Porch" @ http://www.joshua24-15.blogspot.com/ . This young Mom was one of the first people I met here and come to find out, she only lives a few hours away. Some day I hope to meet her in person. She's had some Trials in her life and she has remained strong and witty! Despite the dedication & lack of sleep having a newborn, she finds humor in her days. I miss her when she is not adding another chuckle to my day!
Second, goes to "Professor" @ http://professorspictures.blogspot.com/...also known as a "Babbler" ...I love her daily pictures of Just Life...there in the Middle of Nowhere Montana. They reflect the simplicity of life that Montana is all about. I've experienced life there, so I am luck to be reminded daily, just how much I miss that country!
She's a big city gal who decided to uproot & try a little remote town, teaching our younger generation. I applaud all teachers! They are creating our future in the children. I applaud Professor!
Third...well, this one will probably bah-humbug me, for sure.......but LL...it's for you!! I know he's a cattleman and often I wonder if his blog was created as a diversion from the everyday life. "In Depth & Perception" @ http://lordloser.blogspot.com/ is the name I've given LL, as he thinks 'outside the box'. He really tested my brain soon after I started this blog. He recognized something in me that he was familiar with in his upbringing....and he raised a question in myself that I hadn't really thought of before. Because of him...I have been more willing to write 'from my heart' , to be honest with all I write about. (Not sure if that a good thing...but it is what it is now.)
Fourth, I would like to select "TheHappyWoman" @ http://thehappywoman.blogspot.com/. She provides insight in helping women, through horses & nature, to deal with life, love and happiness, to become more fulfilled in your life. She also, stirred my brain! I had to think pretty hard how to answer her questions as I have just lived life without thinking how I was juggling all aspects! She lives in a beautiful place south of France, and I envy her fortitude and dedication. She has become a very dear friend to me.
Fifth, I am selecting a lady who's blog is filled with so much fun & useful information "The Razor Family" @ http://razorfamilyfarms.com/blog. She is a busy, busy lady with wonderful recipes, an Etsy site for her creations and has such a huge, warm heart! Her and her hubby are trying to adopt...and they wish they could adopt them all! It shows how big & beautiful her heart truly is! They are also military...I have a special place in my heart for military families, as our son is part of that 'family' serving to protect us, so we can all blog! (he is USMC - Inactive Reserve Ready status these days).
There are so many sites I just don't-won't- wait to read...with slow dial up and so many wonderful pictures to be seen, some just take way too long to load....I do however wait for Lacy's and TrainWreck's! They are well worth the wait!
There are a lot of people who deserve this more than I...and some have already received it! I wish I could send it to everyone I've discovered in the Blogsosphere.
The designer of this award has asked that the following be passed along with it:
The origin of the Arte y Pico Award "This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them, I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain me day to day and to share this prize with those who enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few. The people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long serious list of bloggers I also enjoy to read. But I will name the first 10 and leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers that visit other's blogs and are nourished by them."Here are the rules, if you decide to pass the award further to remarkable blogs in blogosphere worth to mention.
