A Sweet Award


My sweet friend Pat bestowed this award on me yesterday and I was very honored to receive it. Pat had some wonderful words to share about giving and receiving awards, but my favorite quote about awards was this: "I believe awards are made and passed on in the spirit of encouragement." Over the last six months Pat has been an encouragement to me. She always leaves comments that are closed with a hug and you just know that there is a sweet gentle spirited lady behind that keyboard. Through her posts I've traveled to Ireland, twice, viewed gorgeous architecture (one of my favorite passions in life), and learned much about history. If you haven't visited Pat's blog I've left you the link so just click on over http://millefiorifavoriti.blogspot.com/.

Now, I think I would like to pass this award on to my friend Ellen B. aka "The Happy Wonderer". Ellen and I participated in a tea themed blog-a-thon some months back and I always enjoyed reading her posts so I continued to read them. Ellen loves the Lord, her family, friends, and life as well as being an amazing photographer and excellent cook. Even though we live about two hours from each other our paths are always crossing. We'll be on the same freeway, in the same town, and one day she was even next door to my work. I just know that one day we are going to be in the same place at the same time. So Ellen, I would like to pass this award on to you.

Oh Cori! This was so sweet! Thank you so much for your kind words.
