  1. Just fabulous and very well done!

    • Thanks luv!

  2. We learn something new about you everyday! Congratulations on the blog award….well deserved! Hugs, Julie

  3. Thanks so much Julie. Huggies backatcha

  4. Oh, my gosh, we have even more in common. I’ve read all of Louise Erdrich’s books, and that’s saying a lot as I don’t read many books. Congrats! Is it too late for me to act on the award you nominated me for? I was waiting till I got 15 favorite blogs….!

    • Don’t you just LOVE LE?!?! Have you read the children’s books too? My daughter LOVED them, I hope she will add to the series!! T
      The award can take as long or short of a time as you like Kaye, it does not expire! And you’re under no obligation to accept it. If you don’t have “enough” faves to pass it on to just pass on to the number you have. Part of what I get from the whole “award” thing is that it’s more about spreading the love than slavishly following a guide.

  5. Congratulations – you really do have a lovely blog! You can have all of my lemon desserts – I prefer chocolate. And thanks for the nomination!

    • You’re very welcome! I’m licking my lips thinking of a great lemon square right now 🙂

  6. Lovely award for a lovely person 🙂

  7. I always learn something new when I visit your site. Lemons are delicious, aren’t they. And thank you so much for the nod!

    • Lemons, hurray! Nod well deserved 🙂

  8. Anna thank you so much for this lovely award I will definitely pay it forward 🙂

    • Much deserved!!
