Beautiful Friends

Wow! My extremely gracious blog-friend Rene at Cottage and Vine has passed along a Beautiful Blogger award to me. Please stop by and visit her lovely blog.
With this award, I have to choose 15 other bloggers to receive the award, and I have to tell you seven things about me that you don't already know.
Both of these are hard at 7:30 in the morning.
There are so many inspiring, beautiful, God-honoring, family-serving bloggers that I've had the privilege to "meet" over the last year. Choosing 15 leaves me torn. I want to honor all of you who so faithfully join the conversation with me, and I want to introduce you to some other folks that inspire me from from afar as I stalk them! ;-) So, because I can't recognize 157 blogs, here goes:

1. The Point
2. Twinkle
3. Learning as They Grow
4. Walk with Lauri
5. Peacorn, Popnuts, Soda Gum, and Chewing Water
6. By the Lamp Light
7. Tea with Tiffany
8. Lemonade Makin Mama
9. Stones of Remembrance
10. Sweet Nothings
11. Rare and Beautiful Treasures
12. Red Writing
13. His Princess
14. The Pleasures of Homemaking
15. Old Post Road

That was hard; here's the somewhat easier part.
Seven Things That You Didn't Know
1. My parents were both old enough to be my grandparents when I was born.
2. I sing alto.
3. I detest big cities and refuse to drive in them.
4. I am a 1st generation American.
5. I struggle with disorganization and messiness.
6. I'm afraid of heights.
7. One of my secret desire is to learn to figure-skate.

Thanks again, Rene!

And thanks to you, gentle readers. :-)
May it be spring in your heart.


  1. Awww... thanks you sweet heart you! I adore awards!!!

    I'd love to figure skate too! Except then I'd have to fall as I learned and that scares me...

    I love your new background too by the way!

  2. Thanks Ginger!! You are so sweet! Hmmm, 7 things . . . going to need to give that some thought. Your background makes me want to crack open a good book!

  3. Hi Ginger!

    Thanks so much for including me - that's so sweet of you!


  4. Thank you for including me on your list!

  7. Ginger,

    thank you for the award. how precious of you!! I want to check out all these other wonderful ladies when I get a minute...a few I know, but most I don't. It will be fun to meet new friends.

    a first generation American. Very cool!!

  10. Thank you Ginger!!! I'll try to get this finished in the morning! You're so sweet!

  11. Wow ~ I'm impressed you were able to accomplish all this at 7:30am. I'm usually trying to get my act together before dashing out the door to my classroom.

    Oh I do hope you learn to skate. It's really not hard. Once you do, it's like riding a bike. I grew up on skates and still love being on the ice.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. It's always nice to meet new people.


  12. Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around to get to know you more. You have a delightful and cheery spot.


  13. Ginger, you are very deserving of the award! I enjoyed learning more about and yes, big cities are over-rated...unless someone else is willing to drive, lol.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. Thank you so much for my Beautiful Blogger Award. As a newby to blogland this is quite a thrill for me and makes me feel very good.

    You most certainly deserved this award with the creativity of your posts and the incorporation of photos into your stories. Love it!! You inspire me!!

    Thanks again!!

  15. Congratulations on your award Ginger! You are so deserving! I am honored that you shared this with me too. Thank you kindly dear one. Blessings to you!
