The Sunshine and Genuine Blogger Awards

While I was busy taking notes and photos in Philadelphia, I received some blogging awards!  I really appreciate these awards and I’m happy to accept them.

First I received the Sunshine Award from Renee at cravesadventure.   Her blog was one of the first I followed when I started my blog and I enjoy and appreciate her point of view on so many subjects!   Be sure to check her posts to be challenged and see what she’s up to.

I also received the Sunshine Award and the Genuine Blogger Award from Hot Rod Cowgirl, and I was really happy about this!  She has a great blog that I look forward to reading, and I find her writing quite inspirational – and I like her sense of humor, too!

The Sunshine Award comes with some requirements, which are:

Link the award to the person who gave it to you.

Answer the questions that come with it.

Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it.

The questions:

Favorite color:  blue

Favorite number: 7

Favorite Non-alcoholic drink:  lemonade

Facebook or Twitter:  Twitter

My Passion:  Travel and adventure

Favorite pattern:  argyle

Favorite Day of the Week:  the weekend!

Favorite Flower:  roses

Now I will nominate ten bloggers.  And since the Genuine Blogger Award doesn’t have any specific requirements, I would like this list of bloggers to receive both the Sunshine Award AND the Genuine Blogger Award:

Francine in Retirement 

Cloud of Lace  

Two Black Dogs    

Just Add Attitude



Bagni di Lucca and Beyond   

Lorna’s Tearoom Delights

The Urge To Wander

Cosy Travels of the Viking and his Kitten  

These awards are my way of saying thank you for your great blogs.  Whether you accept one or both awards or pass them on is up to you…  I’ll be notifying each of you, and congratulations!  And thanks again Renee and Hot Rod Cowgirl :)  Meg
