Sharing the love

Sometimes it is hard to imagine that there is actually anyone out there who is looking at your blog. It is a big world, and there are blogs out the wazzoo!! And while I mainly keep this up for myself, it is really nice hearing every once in a while that what I say (or cook, or bake, or make) made someone smile. I love sharing my fun with my friends and family, and this blog has been a great way to do that.
Recently, though, I was touchd in a whole new way. One of the bloggers whom I love to follow recognized me as an inspiration! I was shocked, flattered, and a little overwhelmed. How does one respond when a role model says s/he appreciates what you do? It really just makes me see how lucky I am.
So I would like to share Anula's award with some of the people who have inspired me, and kept me going when I felt like blogging was just sending my words into a void.
Anula chose seven people and their blogs. She then asked us to share this award with seven people of our own - people who inspire us to do what we do. It is actually a lot harder that you would think!! She requests, and I do too, that this award keeps going - that you choose seven people you admire, whose blogs are a part of your web-surfing rituals, and let them know that you appreciate them welcoming you into their lives the way I appreciate you folks doing with me!

In no particular order:
  • Beth from Someone's in the Kitchen with Brina - I love your style, your creativity, and having Jewish holiday foods to drool over!
  • Shelley from CMomCook - hey, if it were't for you, I probably wouldn't have started this thing...!
  • Audax from Audax Artifex - you are an inspiration month in and month out in the Daring Kitchen, and your love for what you do comes through in all of your creations!
  • tease-spoonof sugar - your recipes are always so yummy looking, and your kids are just beautiful!
  • myrecessionkitchen - budget friendly, crafty, and presonable, all rolled into one!
  • Aparna from My Diverse Kitchen - beautiful photography, creative recipes, and all around lovely to read!

And, of course, I can not make this list without mentioning:

  • Anna from Anula's Kitchen - Your blog is one I love to look at, your cfreativity amazes me, and your love for life is truly inspirational!!


  1. I have a tear in my eye... :') your words are soooo nice! Thank you!!!

  2. What a wonderful compliment you have given me. You are a gem thank you so much.

    Cheers from Audax in Sydney Australia.

  3. Aw, you're so sweet!!!! Thank you so much!! :-) Your blog makes me smile. I hope you're doing well in Daring Bakers! I had to drop it w/the current pregnancy b/c I just couldn't keep up.

  4. Thank you so much Ruth, for thinking of me, and the compliments.
    I just enjoy doing what I do, as I see you do too. :)

  5. Thank you sooo much! Like you, I sometimes wonder if anyone ever reads the stuff I write - despite the fact that I do it for myself and it shouldn't really matter. But when you know someone else is reading your blog and enjoying it, it really makes you feel good. I'm truly touched - and I enjoy reading your blog as well.
