The Sunshine Awards

What a wonderful week it has been!! Full of great food, very little school work, lots of sleep ins (goodbye black bags under the eyes!) and sunshine! And I mean this in two ways: 1- the beautiful beautiful warm pre summer weather and 2- I am so excited and humbled by the kind giving of The Sunshine Awards!!

I would like to give a humungous thank-you to Miss Marzipan for so kindly giving nominating me The Sunshine Award! I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely blog full of mouth watering recipes and all things “Doing It Yourself” 🙂
As well as another humungous thank-you to Francesa and Nicole at Flora’s Table for as well nominating Daisy and the Fox for The Sunshine Award. Do yourself a favor and check out this blog celebrating home-cooked meals, wine and all that is sharing with family and friends 🙂
