Awards are a fun way to get linked up with new friends. I am truly excited and grateful when I receive one. In the past couple of weeks I received two new awards. This one is the Black Canvas Award I received from Vivienne @ the V-Spot. The Blank Canvas Award - celebrating blogs who cram in a lot of different topics. I like the way her friend expressed her reason for giving this award: I have chosen them because they make me laugh, they are honest, they aren't all about one thing, like flowers or tablescapes, etc. I love their work and wish I were that good, or they are kindred spirits to me, they are intelligent and they are good writers!"

Thank you Viviene

We are to pass this award on and list 7 traits that we have. It didn't say good or bad traits, so I will try to do a little of both.

1. I am a thinker. I mean all of the time. It never stops!

2. I am not lovey dovey in any way. I am so uncomfortable talking about feelings and such. I can't use pet names. It makes me feel weird.

3. I honestly wish the best for everyone.

4. I am an eater. I can out eat just about anyone.

5. I have hope.

6. I am never shocked because I believe anything is possible.

7. I am simple and complicated. Perhaps, just simply complicated.

I am going to pass this Award to my good friend @ Mimi Lee.

I received this next award from Samantha (I wanted my name to be Samantha so bad when I was a kid.) @ Two Hearts Together and Amy @ Keeping up with the Shultz Family. It's the Lovely Blog Award.

Thank you Samantha and Amy.

Here are the rules if you want to pass along the award:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

This one is tough to accept. Just thinking about the 15 blogs has had me in knots. I have had a lot of wonderful bloggers who have found me and become followers. I appreciate them and enjoy visiting their blogs. Please choose 15 of my followers that you have never seen before and visit their blog. Thanks you again to everyone for the awards and reading this rather long post.
