I knew I'd forget somebody

Well about yesterday's Sunshine Award... mixed emotions I absolutely love that someone thought enough of me to give me one, but....

I wish there were an easier way to do that! PLUS I knew I would forget someone that has shown such kindness and offered friendship and I did. I'm sure I forgot a lot. I want to extend my Sunshine Award to all my inspirational friends!!!! (like Luthien @ Pimp and Paint and Karen @ Sassmowth Designs

The limit was 12 and I did go over that but I still didn't get everyone. I feel bad at leaving anyone out! The awards are a bittersweet thing. I feel great that I received one, but man! that took me literally a couple hours to link it all and then go and spread the good news. I almost hate to ask others to do it when I know how busy most everyone is! So I intentionally left some out because I was thinking there is no way this person has this kind of extra time!

So I want to give a shout out to ALL my friends and I consider you all friends and you ALL deserve a Sunshine Award because as I read all of your posts they really do bring a little bit of sunshine to my day at least for that moment and I really appreciate that! I'm not just talking about when someone comments on my post (which makes me feel really great!), but just people posting about their lives in general. I truly do love to read about people and their lives.

Most of you know I'm a stay at home mom and this little computer screen is the window to the outside world for me. I not only don't get out much... I live in the boondocks. I have no neighbors that I can see and I know that may sound like paradise to some (cause I thought that too once) but sometimes I feel very isolated. My best friend is an hour away and works a lot. I just recently lost my mom, ok ok ok... this is turning badly and I didn't mean for it to take this turn. But what I mean to say is that I truly love these online friendships that have formed and continue to form. You all mean a lot to me :) Big hugs to you all!


  1. awwww... jaime :)) you're so sweet!!! thank you so much for passing me this award!! i am really really touched :)) MUAX!!!
    luthien :)

  2. I am sure if you left anyone out they understand. Congrats on your award, I this is actually my first time visiting your blog and I came across you by the link in Poppy's Place's blog.


  3. Thanks for being my "online friend" too! Because we have shared similar loss in the past year, I feel close to you and your family. We are all part of the "family of man" and should regard each other as brothers and sisters! Crazy concept...right?! Thanks for thinking of me and keep your chin does get easier over time! I have been planning some creative things, but my computer keeps misbehaving and we had to replace our printer last night! Maybe I can get it in gear by next week!! Love and Valentines....Janette

  4. Popping in 2 say HELLO to one of my FAVOURITE ladies!!! '-)

    Hope you are having a great & creative week!

  5. I am a stay at home mom/artist as well. I also live out in the boondocks with no local friends. I also use this little computer window as a way to connect, but also feel rather isolated. Just wanted to send you hugs and let you know that there are definitely others right there with you who can totally relate. We love our babies more then life itself but the desire to be Lauren (as opposed to Mom) every now and then is a really real & strong feeling. So *big hugs* to you!

  6. Thank you Lauren, we are kindred spirits... I'll take that hug!

    Chris, always great to see you!!


I love it that you are wanting to comment but please know that I have moved my current blog (this is the old host). You can now find me at and leave a comment there. This very same post is on there, as I have picked up the whole kit and kaboodle and moved it. I hope to see you! Please come by and say howdy!
