and the award goes to....


I received a "You Make My Day" award from the simply lovely Joslyn at SimpleLovely. (Thank you! The gesture made my day.) So now I get to choose five people who make my day. This is hard because I read so many blogs that I really like. Otherwise I wouldn't be reading them, you see. Too many people make my day.

But lately I'm really in to:

01. SF Girl By Bay. I fall in love with almost every single setting this girl puts on her blog. She has great vision and exercises nice discretion in her posting.

02. Meg at Hi, I'm Meg. I'm a new regular to her site and am amazed with her work. Her photos speak to me. Plus, she doesn't use PhotoShop or Photoshop actions.

03. Alyson at Unruly Things. If I could co-blog with someone, I think I would choose this gal. She suits me, if that's ok to say. And she's a photo natural with fab design skills.

04. Jan at Poppytalk for having a blog that's practically perfect: beautiful, inspiring, uplifting, interesting. Her latest collection series shines.

05. Jamie Anne at I Love You ... I Think, because she is funny and beautiful and smart and when I read her blog I feel like I am with her. We get each other. Which is good because she is my sister.

Now each of you listed above are supposed to choose five people whose blogs make your day, make a list on your blog like I did, and then let them know via comment on their blog. If you don't feel like doing it, I won't hold it against you. This just seemed like a good opportunity to let you know that I'm admiring you from afar. Or not so afar.

Paperdolls by Maryjane. She's in a class I teach.

Ali, I'd blog with you any day. I'd go out on a photoshoot with you too. we'd make a creative duo.

isn't blogging a funny thing? finding such great friends via shared interests, creativity, and style. I do hope we meet some day! in real life, not blog life.

I can’t remember Suzanna M’s exact words but soothing comes to mind. I love you blog you’ve managed to melt my hardened despotic heart in one click. I was listening Adele when I logged on and it just felt so right, you know that moment when everything aligns. I’m so relaxed I’m about to slip into a coma…when I wake I’ll be back.

Wonderful picks, some old favourites, some new...thanks for the intro. And congrats on your award, you deserve it! (great photo)

Ali, links like those are the reason that I never read real books any longer! Just when I think I've got an hour to crack open a book that's been sitting since Christmas, I investigate people's recommendations on the Internet and end up going to bed at three in the morning.

Great stuff there!

And I bet you make a lot of people's days.
