Lovely, bright , vivid colors really make my day!

You know what else makes my day??? My very first award! Given to me by the Blogging Queen of the Social Scene, Bunny at the Paris House. I visit Bunny everyday for tips on everything from home and garden to fitness and fun. The best thing about her is her friendship. Though we've never met I consider her a dear friend I want to visit with daily! I send this award on to another amazing blog friend. Designer, domestic diva and mother, Angela Henry. Angela's blog was the catalyst in the creation of mine. She is a daily inspiration with amazing creativity and a love of family, art interiors and life.

Bunny posted ten things about herself, but I am answering with only five things about myself that you may or may not know:

1) I live 1 mile from where I grew up and all my children except the youngest have attended the same schools I attended. In fact my drill team picture is still hanging in the athletic hall at the high school today.

2) My youngest child attends a private school that focuses on learning differences. He is dyslexic, dysgraphic, ADD and touched with Asperger's Syndrome.

3) I am a 6th generation Texan!!!!!

4) I too lost a baby. I had an ectopic pregnancy rupture.

5) I was an only child with a younger half sister who I never got to know. I just found out she has a blog as well, so hopefully she and I will become friends through our blogs. She has a beautiful new baby girl who I can't wait to get to know!!

Thanks again, Bunny!! You made my day!

  1. Congratulations on your first blogging award! Enjoy the acclaim and have a happy day. I love the first photo on this post - what gorgeous colours!

  2. Congratulations on a well deserved award Kim....I love your blog, you are always so always seem like the kind of person that if I called round for coffee at 10am, I would still be there at 3pm,then rushing to pick the children up from school at the last minute....if that makes any sense!!!

    Enjoyed reading some more info. about you and catching up on your blog, I only just got back from my trip :)

    Best wishes :)

  3. You are such a sweetheart!! your blog is lovely and I am so happy to have found it and you!!

  4. What a beautiful, unique blog! You are so talented! That is one thing I do not have...artistic skills! I do love looking and attempting things though! Funny thing...did you compare our profiles? I think we must be the only two people in blog world with "The Ugly Dachshund" as a favorite movie (Nick looked far and wide for a DVD for me when we were dating, he FINALLY found one that I still have) and Harry Connick Jr (I have seen him in concert a number of times) as favorite music. Pretty impressive! :) Glad to have your blog address! I am a "follower" now! :) Cheers, Kelly

  5. Humbly, thanks. Made my day. (Do I really have to write about myself? More stuff?)


You make my day when you leave me comments!! xoxo kim
