Feeling Special...

Whenever I visit my blog, I feel pretty special.
I love to write...I enjoy sharing my stories and my photographs.
I love recording the life and times of an ordinary girl,
enjoying life with her ordinary guy!!

But then something happens, other bloggers find you,
they visit and enjoy it as well!!

Then, you feel a little like a rock star.

That's what happened last month when
surprised me with the Reader Appreciation Award!!

I received this award because I comment a lot on her blog!!

I love Jill's place, it is versatile, creative and fun!!
She is passionate and purposeful!!

Many thanks to my dear friend Jill, you have a wonderful blog,
and a heart made of gold!!

Next came this beautiful entry from my dear friend

Adrienne wrote that I remind her to see beauty everywhere,
and to embrace adventure!!

Adrienne is a dear sweet soul that has been so much more then a blogger friend.
She is a keeper of memories and a recorder of life.
Both of these woman have touched my life in so many ways,
and made me a better person because they are a part of my life!!


  1. You ARE a rock star...rock on my friend :)


  2. Hey, I also love to come to your blog to read your stories and look at your wonderful pictures - so there is no wonder people say lovely things about you.
    Well done and congratulations to you my friend.

  3. Blogging gives us a bigger sphere of influence and everyone we touch in our sphere adds a little bit of us to who they are. So bloggers are teachers, influential people and yes, rockstars to some too!! :)

  4. YOU my dear blogging friend, are a Star! You put a smile on my face everytime I visit!
    I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your family - and here's to a blessed new year ahead! Hugs

  5. I also enjoy reading your blogs. I may not be able to comment always, but I do love reading them. They are full of sunshine.
    Write on and keep feeling special!

  6. Debbie, you are indeed a very special individual. Isn't it nice to know your terrific, beautiful, positive posts have a wonderful effect on others? You are truly a gem!

  7. julie said it perfectly. your positivity impacts everyone who stops here. :)

  8. Very well done: you deserve it!
    Thank you for visiting!
    Many blessings to you and yours!

  9. Congrats on your well-deserved awards! :-)

  10. Just finished taking down the tree - so was feeling a bit blah. Then I came and visited you here. Guess what? All better now!!

  11. Oh my dear, give me way to much credit. A day without your blog is like a day without sunshine for me. It really is. You are a true inspiration to me!

  12. We do make lovely friends, in Pretty Blog Land. :-)

    Lots of gentle beginning-the-New-Year-hugs...

  13. You should feel special because YOU ARE! So glad to of found your blog.


  14. That is so sweet! Congratulations on the award & may there be many more in 2012!

    You asked about posted pics...
    I have a memory stick (USB information storage) & every time I post a pic on my blog, I put the pic on the memory stick so it isn't stored on my computer anymore & that frees a LOT of space on the computer, too... only the ones I haven't posted are actually stored on my computer.

    The memory stick is about $20 & holds sooo much... definitely worth it not to have all that space & memory being used on the computer when it doesn't have to be. =)

  15. You totally rock!

    I'm so sorry about your Dad :(
