You Make My Day

My friend Tracie, at My Petite Maison, sent me this award. Drop over and visit Tracie. You will love the things she has to show you, and for all of the pet lovers, her dog Zeke, is beautiful. She has an interesting cheery twist on life, and you can almost hear the ocean breezes floating through her open windows!

I am so honored that she would think to remember me with this award. Thank you, Tracie! You made MY day.

The concept behind this award, is when you have received it, you pass it along to others who make your day. I'm so new to all of these fun little blogging games that it is taking just a minute to catch on! ANYONE who leaves a comment makes my day, but several stand out from the rest this week, and so I want to pass this award along to them.

Melissa at The Inspired Room. Last week she shared a week of inspired living. It was, well...inspiring! Her blog gave me some interesting concepts to consider.

Barbara at The Blog Book. I have read her editoral comments and magazine articles for years. Yes I know what you're thinking but... I REALLY DO read editoral comments, AND her blog is equally interesting.

Katherine at Yellow Rose Arbor. She shares many creative centerpieces and decorating ideas. It is obvious that she enjoys her home because she's always creating something new and is excited about sharing it with her readers.

Esther, one of my sisters who has shared the fun that goes along with creating a blog, even though it isn't hers, AND comments EVERYDAY.

Keith, one of my brothers who reads my blog and calls me to encourage me, AND comments EVERYDAY. Gotta love 'em! uh, no pressure ya'll. ; )

Thank you so much for making this experience be an enjoyable one. I would love to curtsy and curtsy and curtsy and blow kisses like the little lady on stage in The Sound of Music. Imagine me doing just that and until next time...Love, Rachel

Good morning Rachel,

You brighten everyone's day. I know I always look forward to your greetings - my day's not complete unless I check in and see what you're up to. It's become a morning ritual, check in and see what Sweet Rachel's posted. You make me smile!

Have a great day sweetie - hmm, who are you spreading the joy on to?
Love, Tracie
