My very first award!

I want to thank Kim at Stirring the Pot for giving me my very first bloggy award. I have to admit, I have been a bit discouraged at times that my blog doesn't have more readership, but then remind myself that that is not why I started it and its completely OK to have a nice quiet blog. I love the fabulous people who do read my posts and I would never trade their quality for the quantity of others.
So, on that note, I also want to pass this award on to a few other people:

To Sylvia at Sylvia's Ramblings. My oldest and dearest friend. I don't know what I would do without you in my life.

To Anne at Annethologie, my real, flesh and blood sister, who got my started blogging and just gave my my real, flesh and blood niece.

and to NV, at This D*mn House who has a fabulous house blog, which was the first blog that I followed, and still do to this day. She has a huge heart and an amazing energy, Keep it up, NV!

Thanks to you and to all my bloggy peeps! It is so nice to know you are out there, reading, and sharing your lives with me as well. I love you all!

I'm a newbie to blogging & I am inspired by your blog. "Thanx for posting and Congrat's"

I know what you mean about blogging and followers...I've had the same thoughts too, but I would miss you terribly if you weren't blogging. Your posts are some of my favorites : ) Did you know there was a Paula Deen group? I just met a really sweet blogger named Libby that introduced me to that group.

Kudos on your first--and it won't be your last--award. I, too, look at my hits and comments and compare them (unfavorably) with others, but then remind myself that I'm doing this for me--no ads, no axe hanging over my head, just my own little slice of "publishing heaven." I love your blog.
