A Perfect Blend of Friendship Award

Do you know Darlene of Darlene's Days? I bet you do, she has such a cute blog where she shares her daily decorating adventures whether it's a thrifted find she's made over into something totally fab or pictures of her dear daughter Lexi's adorable bedroom each entry is truly worth reading and copying. Now she's a sweetie, so sweet in fact that she was given the Perfect Blend of Friendship Award and passed it along to me! Imagine my surprise and delight. Be sure to visit her blog, she's a daily must read for me and I'm sure she'll fast become one of your favorite blogs too.

This award asks you to answer four questions.

Do you have the same friends since childhood? I moved several times growing up and lost contact with many friends but I've been blessed in recent years to be reunited with a few. Even though we live in different states we manage to keep in touch thru emails and it's wonderful.

What do you value most about your friends? Understanding. I think it's too easy to find fault with people and take offense. I value friends who try to understand where someone else may be coming from before judging, like the old saying about walking a mile in another's shoes.

Are your friends sounding boards? Absolutely! I tend to obsess over things and by talking things over with them it helps me to have clarity. I value their opinions and experiences.

What is your favorite activity to share with friends? Shopping is pretty close to the top of my list but I think time spent just hanging out and creating is pretty wonderful.

Now I am supposed to pass this along to three of my blogging friends they are:

Susie at Bienvenue

Rhonda at Scooterblu's Whimsy

Debs at Langfordlass

Be sure to stop by their blogs, you'll quickly see why I think they are wonderful blogging friends! And don't forget to visit Darlene of Darlene's Days who honored me with this special friendship award.

First of all, CONGRATS to you, for being awarded this Friendship Award. I can already tell in the short time since we met, you are truly a friend, indeed!

And THANKS so much for passing it on to me! I am so humbly honored that you would think of me! ...and you are so sweet to be on a look out for more hotel china! Your trip to the mountains I bet was fabulous this time of the year! I'm glad you were able to get away and unwind.

I am so thankful when I meet new bloggers like you that I can "friend." I look forward to getting to know you even better! You made my day! :) ~Rhonda
