Have you ever felt like you didn't fit in??
That your friends don't really enjoy the same things that you do.

I like to clean and organize my home.
I love nature.
I love to bake and create.
I adore taking pictures and scrapbooking.
I enjoy working in my gardens.
I love my home and everything inside it.

I could waste spend an entire day taking pictures of birds.

A ride on my bike, a walk on the beach,
and my day is complete.

I love the hubs!!

Here in blog land, I feel like I fit in.
I have found so many "sisters" who get me,
who share the same passions that I do.

That's why this award means so much to me.

Many thanks to
for sending this my way.

Dianna and I share a love for the simple life.
On her blog, she shares great stories of love, family and history.
Her photography is amazing!! 

Now, by accepting this award,
I am suppose to share a few things about myself
that you don't already know.

Are you kidding,
you all know everything there is to know about me.
So instead I am going to share a few things
about the hubs, that you may not already know.

He is the kindest soul I know.
We met when we were 15 years old, he was my boss at a fast food restaurant.
I asked him to my Senior Ball and he said "No".
When he was 9 he was in a car accident and then a body cast for 7 months.
He can't hear anything, unless you fart, "fluff", that he can hear.
He always wears a hat. 
He can fix or do anything.
He is addicted to chocolate, the really good stuff!!


  1. What a cute award! Congrats!
    Loved the tidbits about Chuck!

  2. I was just telling a really dear friend of mine (who moved away about 3 years ago) that my blog friends notice when I'm MIA or having a hard time with something before my local pals do!! I LOVE MY BLOG BUDS!!

  3. Oh girl, I can tell you that I am extremely grateful to have you as a blogger friend. I've always felt like a square pole trying to fit in a round hole. In blogland I don't feel that way. You deserve the award and I'm laughing at the tidbits of your husband especially about the fluffing.

  4. Debbie!
    You deserve a reward.
    Chocolate is nacudowniejszą thing in the world.
    It is delicious. I love it.

  6. That is a really cute award. Love that you wrote abut the hubs, since we all know alot about you already.

  19. Congratulations Debbie, I know what you mean. I have dear friends but as far as me loving photography as much as I do, it's lovely to be among blogging friends who have that same kind of passion. The info on your hubby was warm and cute. Thanks for sharing it and have a great weekend.

  20. You so deserve this award.In many ways I too find my friends in blogland.

  21. Congratulations - you certainly deserve a sisterhood award! And you've summed up so well how so many of us feel.

    I read a quote the other day that was something like ... "I love my computer - all my best friends live there!" I never would have guessed before I started blogging that I would find so many sisters here.

  22. Congrats and you said it all Debbie - I laugh now when I think back to how unsure I was about getting into blogging!
    I love how you call them "fluffs" - in our house they're called SBDs Silent But Deadly :D)

  23. Kudos on receiving the Award! Your blog is from the heart and who you are!! That's what makes in so special. Have a great weekend --- Don't glow too much!!

  24. How sweet! Congrats on the well deserved award. You are one special lady.


  25. No, you have also brothers whom you forgot to mention.

    One of them likes to do most of the things you like.

    How about chocolate ice cream?

  26. I like the simple life too. I like all that you mention. I like my hub to at age 15 years. It was fun to hear your thoughts about him. Congratulations on your cute award.
    Blessings to you!

  27. He sounds like a keeper!
