I am never as humbled as I am when someone thinks enough of my little blog to pass an award on to me.  I was very surprised again today when I received this one:

from a wonderful, talented blogging friend, Buttons.  I thank you for this honor, my friend.  I hope you will all check out her blog.  She is a fabulous writer! 

Now here are the rules for accepting this award:


1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.

2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.

3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.

4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.

5. And most of all - have fun!

Anyone who has every received an award knows, it's very hard to select just 5 blogs to pass it on to, however, it's what the rules say.  This particular award is to be for blogs that have less than 200 followers.  That does help narrow the field a bit.  Please just know I LOVE you ALL but I must follow the rules.
So here are the 5 I have selected, each unique, each wonderful and each have enriched my life in one fashion or another.  Please check them out and share the love!

Have fun checking them out.

Thanks again, B!

Congrats on the award. Fun to get to know you. As for following by blog...I've resisted posting followers but maybe I should finally give in. Therefore I've put up a follower sign-up in my layout. :)

Dear Jill,

Congratulations!! I will check out the blogs you mention here - the one who sent the award to you and the ones you selected.

You are a great writer as well, Jill! I really look forward to your posts every day, like sitting down with a friend having a warm cup of tea or coffee. Your photos help me imagine sitting at your kitchen table looking out the window at the world you see every day. Each day I visit, I feel as if I have taken a journey, both with photos and with your writing!

Thank you so much and congratulations to you for winning and to all those you in turn blessed! Great way to start off the new year!
