Another award...thank you, Heidi!!!

Heidi from Tried-and-True Cooking with Heidi passed along an award to me and I can't begin to tell you how much it meant! This has been one of those weeks in which anything and everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong, so I very much appreciated the little "pick me up". I just found out this evening that my grandfather's health is declining, which is extremely difficult for me to come to terms with. Being a nurse, I'm forced to deal with patients passing away, but it's a whole different story when it affects you personally. It certainly puts everything into perspective and makes you realize just how precious life is and that every day truly is a gift.

On a happier note, I now have the privilege of passing this award onto seven other bloggers...several are blogs I have only recently started following, but greatly enjoy!

1) Elyse at Elyse's Confectionery Creations
2) Denise at Keeper Worthy Recipes
3) Teresa at A Blog About Food
4) Chrissy at A Lil' Dash of Diva
5) Jen at A Thrifty Home
6) Lara at Recipe Shoebox
7) Risa at Baked Perfection

Make sure you check out all of these blogs...they're all wonderful! I'm now off to bed... :)
