I just popped over to say HI! Congratulations on your first award and a special thank you for passing it on to the Back Porch!

Oh, thank you girls so much! I really appreciate another blog award. I'm SO terrible about trying to single out people to pass these onto, so don't be mad at me for not playing by the rules!:)

Thank you for the compliments on my blog! I really enjoy doing it & thought when I first started that I'd surely run out of things to talk about. Thank goodness, life just seems to bring about a ton of mostly interesting topics and I haven't run out yet! I'm so glad to meet you 2. There seem to be a lot of new bloggers recently via RMS, maybe that place has run it course.
