Smilin'

Look who finally let me take her picture!























Smile for the camera!  Everyone, meet Precious!  Precious, these are my wonderful blogger friends!  She's usually quite camera-shy (unlike Hunter) but for some reason, today, she wanted her picture taken... so, I obliged!  Isn't she cute!  We call her Presh, Mouth, Miss Little Feet or Old Bat depending on the circumstance!  Presh for short; she LOVES to hear herself talk (thus Mouth); she's got the tiniest, little feet (Miss Little Feet, her Indian name); and when she's being the Alpha kitty and hateful towards Hunter she's the Old Bat!  She'll answer to any of them (probably just to hear herself talk!)!  In all seriousness, she's a really sweet and well-behaved cat.  We love her!

I'm smilin' today also!  Wanna know why?  Because I just found out that I was awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Marissa at Life On Our Side of the Mountain!


This comes as a surprise to me since I have only been blogging since the first of the year.  It's been a wonderful experience!  I have not only learned a lot about setting up a blog and making it mine (personalizing it) but I have learned a lot about myself. When you open yourself up to other people, it makes you take a good look at yourself.  And in both, I have a long way to go!  I have also 'met' some awesome people in bloggerville!  They are reading my blog, leaving kind words, encouraging me in whatever I'm going through at the time and it's all so overwhelming and great at the same time... that people are actually interested in my photos or my ramblings is an indescribable feeling!  I have enjoyed reading other blogs too; their openness to sharing bits 'n pieces of their lives with others.  They all have something great to offer their readers whether it's a beautiful photograph, or a learning experience for them or a funny or even a sad story.  They have made me laugh, cry, think and pray.  I've learned all kinds of tips and things I didn't know and I've found some great recipes. I have also found that they are all so very helpful when I have had blogging questions.  Thanks to each and every one of you in this wonderful blogging community!  I have been truly blessed!

I will proudly display this award on my sidebar and am looking forward to passing it on (even though when I pass it on I have to tell you all seven things that you don't know about me!  I'm sure I can come up with something *laugh*)!

Thanks Marissa!

Till next time,
