The Sunshine Award

Print Friendly

I have something a little different to share with you guys today. Being Thanksgiving and all I figured we could probably do with a little break from all of the food/recipes because I know for me the thought of considering/adding/making another meal/side dish/entree or dessert is a little more than my mind (or stomach) can take. So, I thought it would be the perfect time to have a little fun. Get to know each other a little better if you will.

A few weeks ago I got an email from a sweet Katie who blogs over at 24 Carrot Life. You guys know Katie, she inspired that killer chocolate, banana and pumpkin swirl smoothie we made not so long ago.

Anyways, I got an email from Katie saying that she had nominated me for a Sunshine award.

The Sunshine award is an award that is passed on by bloggers to fellow bloggers who “positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” I had never heard about the award until I got the email from Katie saying that she had nominated me. I was so excited, I could not believe it. I literally started doing a happy dance right there in the middle of my kitchen. ←Yes really. I am totally that girl

What a fun idea and such a great way to create a real close knit, family community among us fellow bloggers (readers included). It’s also a great way share the love of other blogs we stalk follow on a regular basis, as well as give a little insight into the person behind the blog.

I love it. Even if I wasn’t nominated it’s such a fun, sweet way to just share the love and just get to know each other a little better don’t you think?

So in the spirit of the sunshine award Katie posted 10 question for me to answer and I would love it if you would copy and paste them into the comments below and share your answers so I can get to know you a little better too. Sharing is caring people 😉
