The Stylish Blogger Award

Today was a good, no a great day.

This morning, I read a blog post about Affirmations and I posted the following affirmation about myself in response:

“I bring happiness & inspiration to others through my positivity and joyful outlook on life!”

You know what??  It wasn't easy coming up with that or putting it down in writing. Why is it that we have trouble believing that we deserve great things??

Later in my day, I received a comment from Senorita at letting me know that she had chosen me to receive the Stylish Blogger Award.

How amazing is that??!!

This recognition means so much to this blogging newbie, so Senorita....thank you so much!!

See, good things really do happen when you just believe.

When you are honoured with this award, there are some rules you must follow: 

1. Thank and link back to the person that awarded this to you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. This was such an unexpected gesture!! (see above for link)

2. Share seven things about yourself.
- I celebrated my 10th anniversary in November 2010.
- I love country music - country concerts are the best party ever!
- I don't believe in birthdays, I believe in a birthday week!
- I became a vegetarian after I read the book Eating Animals.
- My favourite type of vacation is a cruise.
- I have 2 neices and a nephew and I absolutely adore being an aunt.
- I can eat a 400g Toblerone (the big guy) in one sitting ~ disgusting, but true. :-)

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
