My First Blog Award

It's exciting, when writing a blog, to get visitors, followers and subscribers but an award? Wow!
Thanks, Eat to Live! I guess you can call it a chain award because I get to give 10 awards myself!

Here are the instructions:

  1. Copy the image and display it on your blog.
  2. List 10 things that make you happy.
  3. Try to do at least one of them today.
  4. Pass on the award to 10 bloggers who brighten your day
So here it goes - things that make me happy:
  1. Being close to my mother again (I lived in the Caribbean for 17 years).
  2. Spending time with my daughter and my 3 incredible grandchildren.
  3. Getting creative in the kitchen. I love anything to do with food.
  4. Shopping for a smaller size and almost liking what I see in the mirror.
  5. Making so many new blogging friends.
  6. Seeing my boyfriend's clothes constantly getting too big on him.
  7. Having an outlet for my writing, and someone who responds to what I write.
  8. Getting all dressed up to go someplace special and not feeling fat.
  9. Weekends and vacations.
  10. Getting blogging awards.
So I would like to present my 10 blog awards to some motivating weight loss blogs. Without further ado I give my awards to:
I chose these particular blogs because they inspire us to remain faithful to our weight loss journey. We all know it's not easy, but having each other for support can mean the difference between success and failure. Thanks for your efforts bloggers! You are appreciated.
