Sunshine Award!

Big thanks to Sarita Rucker, a reader and frequent commenter here at The Encouragement Lounge for nominating me for a "sunshine award" -- a DIY blog community award. Sarita publishes her own blog, A College Girl's Days.

The rules of the award:

1) Place the award on your blog or within your post
2) Pass the award on to twelve Sunny Bloggers -- those whose positivity and creativity inspire others!
3) Link to the nominees in your post
4) Tell the nominees they've received the award by commenting on their blogs
5) Share the love and link to the person from whome you received the award

I'm going to nominate just a few other blogs... I read several, but these are the ones that fit the description "those whose positivity and creativity inspire others." I read a few that are political, etc.... and may not fit this description even though I think they are well-crafted. Anyway, here are a few blogs that add cheer to my day:

A Collection a Day -- I love this blog... it is purely visual... the blogger posts a photo a day of a collection, the photography is cool, the collections are fun, and it's just a quick quick study break! Thanks Lisa Congdon!

Stories from the Road -- This is a day-in-the-life blog written by my good friend Judi Mancuso. Judi writes about her experience with her lapband, life with her kids and husband, and a range of other every day observations. Judi is smart, has a wicked sense of humor, and great taste in music. Rock on Judi!

Prattlenog -- Melanie Booth is an educator in the northwest and a terrific colleague! We met online via blogging and went on to do a conference presentation together. Melanie's blog offers perspective, encouragement, and advice for adult students. She and I have frequently referenced each other's posts -- it's a wonderful online collaboration. Thanks Melanie!

So there you go, three blogs that often bring a smile to my day. Thanks again Sarita!!

Have a good day all!
