You Are My Sunshine

I got a new badge for my blog yesterday, but given my rather somber tone I wanted to write about it in a separate journal entry so I saved mentioning it until today. Much appreciation goes out to the fabulous Dawne for bestowing the Sunshine Award unto me! She knows just how much I love these great little nods of recognition and how touched I always am when someone deems me worthy of such accolades. Thank you so much, Dawne!

In accepting this award, the guidelines are as follows:

1. Post the logo on your blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
3. Link the nominees.
4. Let the nominees know they have won this award.
5. Link to the person you received this award from.

All easy stuff and I love that I get to pass it onto other people! These blogs – and so many more – definitely bring sunshine into my life!
