Cherry on Top

Last week the oh-so-talented Tammy, of The Blogging Bradley's,  selected my little blog for the Cherry on Top Award.  Tammy is one of my favorite photographers, I eagerly await each new post to see what she's captured that day.  Her mad skills with the camera inspire me to keep working, so it was incredible honor that she mentioned me - a huge thanks Tammy!

The rules of this decadent award are to:

  1. Thank the person who gave the award to you - done.
  2. Copy the award and put it on your blog - done
  3. List three things about you
    1. I have super fair skin that never tans, burns easily and freckles but never tans
    2. I grew up in a town my family lived in for generations, but since leaving home for college and moved nearly every two years - including a couple of stops abroad
    3. I'm a very proud auntie who is always looking for an excuse to get home to play with my niece and nephew
  4. Post a photo that you love
Taken this winter in my hometown.  My dad helped build this barn when he was a teenager.

Finally, tag five people you want to pass this award on to:

RMontalban - her every post makes me want to hop a plane to her part of the world
The Freebird Photoblog - her beautiful photos make me dream of California beaches
Home on North Fillmore Street - check out her adorable photos of little Z
Urban Muser -  amazing yarn creations and stunning photos
HazyDaisy - gorgeous and inspiring photos

I could keep listing for days - I've discovered so many beautiful bloggers in the past couple of months.  Each day when I opening my reader I know I'm going to be inspired and cheered by the beauty and creativity I'll find.

Over the past few weeks more and more commenters are leaving recommendations of artists or songs for me to check out - which I have LOVED.  I immediately click over the YouTube and have found great new music.  Today's song came from one of those recommendations (from Cindy if I remember correctly.)  Here's Grace Potter and the Nocturnals with "Treat me Right."

Does anyone else flash back to Jefferson Airplane?

I have just hopped over to your blog before going to bed and read your good news - congratulations, you really deserve it. As I continued scrolling down, I was gobsmacked to see that you have so very kindly passed it onto me - WOW! I am genuinely touched as I think your blog is fantastic, and your fathers barn is just beautiful so I understand why it is your favourite photo. Also, if you do decide to hop on the plane then please look me up for a sort of blind date! Until then, we will just continue getting better acquainted!
