Playing catch up........


Quite a while back, my friend Kenna, a very talented lady - incredible photographer, environmentalist, whitewater rafting guide and good friend - awarded me the lemonade award. Although I am very late in saying so, I feel deeply touched to have been chosen by Kenna for this award. Please visit Kenna's inspiring blog, Beholden to Nature, and her amazing Etsy shop. It will make your day brighter!

A Lemonade Award is awarded for a great attitude, and on some days, my attitude is pretty good, I suppose. Despite my incredible sarcasm (it's genetic), and cynicism on some days, I really and truly am a "glass-half-full" kind of girl. So thank you very much, Kenna, for seeing this in me. I am glad that it shows through.

Here are the rules....

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate at least 5 - 10 blogs that show great Gratitude and/or Attitude.
3. Be sure to list and link your nominees within your post.
4. Tell them they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Nominate your favorites and link to your post.

My nominees, who inspire me every day with their examples of living joyfully:

I appreciate you and your talent every day. Thanks you for nominating me for the Lemonade Award. I am honored that you see me that way. :)

I may take me awhile to reciprocate because I have my granddaughter with me for two days.

Julie Magers Soulen said...

I can't believe you are cynical! You are always there to offer kind words. Thanks so much for thinking of me for the lemonade award!

Allie said...

Thank you, Little Jewelry Box! I am excited to check out you site! It is fun getting to know others and see the different blogs!

Thank you very much, Carole! I am blushing now!

And Julie, you are most welcome. Your work and writing are always inspiring! And yes, I am afraid that I can be sarcastic and cynical at times! LOL! Glad it doesn't dominate what comes through to all of you! :)

Marlene said...

Allie, thank you I am honored that you chose me. I will pass the honor on gladly but it will have to wait until next week as I will be gone to a place where I can't use the internet.

Michelle (mkc photography) said...

Thank you so much, Allie! I'm really honored! I chuckled at your thoughts on interfering bystanders at the grocery store on my last post - you know I'm not going to be able to stop laughing every time I go there now! And that's probably a good thing :-D

Oh Allie, sweet Allie - thank you and may your kindness return to you a thousand fold! I will play along in my own belligerent way ... not by posting the award on my blog, but by visiting each and every one of the blogs that you have noted here!

I've made some of the most amazing friends this way!

Have a purely delightful day!!!

Phyllis said...

Hi Allie,

I'm playing catch up too. Here's a late (but hearty) thank you for including me as a 'making lemonade out of lemons' kind of gal.

I will reciprocate, but it will take a bit - - -

Thanks again,
Phyllis
