I have been nominated for yet another award from a very sweet lady… Correna at Correna’s Thoughts. She has many great hobbies and thoughts she shares. She has many wonderful recipes you should check out and her dog is a cutie 🙂 She has a wonderful grasp on her faith, which I enjoy about her posts 🙂
So now the rules for the Illuminating Blogger Award…
Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you (see above)
Say a few words of gratitude on your blog and follow the link (see above)
Share a few words about yourself and pass on the award to 5 other bloggers
I am a country girl at heart. I would rather be on a farm tending animals or working in the garden than anywhere else on earth. I have a strong faith in God, even when things are tough (as they were this past year), I keep having faith that our dreams will come true some day. I have a strong, loving, and hard-working husband who I am blessed to know his love. I love animals, especially my two pups Baxter and Chase. They are my bright spot in each day and bless my life. I love to help others especially kids. I also enjoy raising the chickens we have and getting fresh eggs. I enjoy scrapbooking, canning, crafts, and cooking… yet my big hobby is baking 🙂
Now for the nominations…
I just adore the blog http://feedyardfoodie.wordpress.com/ by Anne. She is a hard-working lady who always seeks to have great animal care for her feed yard in Nebraska. She has drive, ambition, and is one smart lady 🙂 Every time I read her blog I learn so much and am inspired 🙂
Another lady’s blog I enjoy is http://gullringstorpgoatsblog.wordpress.com/ She has a farm where she raises goats and also goes to Paris to see the ballet 🙂 I just love that she can fit in to the country or the city (just like me).
I just came across the blog http://huskercowgirl.wordpress.com/ by Meghan. She is another country girl and her blog is just smack full of information. I think any farmer/rancher is an inspiration especially one who does as much as it seems Meghan does.
Another blog you might enjoy as I do is http://grandparentsplus2.wordpress.com/. It is a great blog with many topics including gardening, animals, and story about her grandkids. It is a good place to get a smile 🙂
Need a good scripture for thought or to lift you up, a funny picture, or a little glimpse of sunny Florida ? Visit http://godssceneryandpromises.wordpress.com She also has a really cute husky dog that seems to love his Florida home. I like this blog as Florida is where I was born so it is nice to be able to visit it though this blog 🙂
I have a few more, but since it says 5 I will keep the other’s for another award. Congrats ladies and keep up the good blogging 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you 🙂
Thank you very much! I look forward to reading your blog!
You are welcome… I really am enjoying catching up on your past blog posts 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words and for choosing me! I love hearing from you and am so glad that we are virtual friends 🙂
You deserve it and are so welcome 🙂 I am also so happy we are virtual friends (maybe some day when I get back to NE we can meet for real 🙂 ) I hope your snow has stopped I heard it has. My Uncle got stuck in it from NE to TX while trying to deliver for his company. He said he was stuck for the whole day sitting on the interstate as they had closed it. I felt bad for him 😦
Congratulations! On this beautiful award! 🙂 “Illuminating Blogger Award” !!! Like you, I love baking too! 🙂
