I'm not really sure if there are rules for the first award, I've seen it around but I can't remember.

~You must display a cheerful attitude.
~You must show love to others.

Wow, I get to pass on these wonderful awards to some of my bestest bloggy friends!
I also recieved this award from Patrice! I am feeling the love with all of these awards! I swear, I think I'll take a break from blogging more often if that's what it takes for people to give me awards!The only rule for this one is to pass it on to 10 blogs I love.
I think I'm going to add a twist for my recipients. I would really love to find some new blogs to read, and I know there are a few people who read my blog that either never or rarely comment and I don't know how to find your blog. So if you read this blog and you would like to share your blog with me so I can get to know you better, please do. Leave me a comment with your blog address and I will stop in to visit (and you'll know I've been there because I will comment). I will give you all a week, and on Thanksgiving I will post my recipients of all of my new favorites! Who knows, you may get some new readers from my readers too!
