Shine On Award ☆


My very first award of 2014 is the “Shine On” award and I am so grateful to Jhuls @ The not so creative cookfor the nomination. Just saying the word “Shine!” makes you all warm and happy from the inside! It shows how all our blogs are able to make us shine and how each of us brighten up each others lives on a daily, sometimes hourly basis!

Congratulations to you Jhuls also! I love your blog and thank you for your continued love and support. Your friendship brightens up my day!

• I can’t go anywhere without my phone now, especially as I keep in touch with
