I was so lucky yesterday. For a long time I have lurked in the fringes of online communities but never felt the desire to surface. In the past year I have discovered many wonderful blogs, but one of the first was by Marie. I can honestly say she has inspired me with my cooking and each day I look forward to her writing. She has, through her blog, made me think about my life, the way I see myself and my family.

Marie has passed on two awards to me, the first one is

This one is awarded for creativity, design, interesting material and contribution to the blogging community. Wow Marie, I am thrilled that you think I deserve this award, especially since my blog is so new.

The next one is this you make my day award.

I only started to write as I had felt things at home getting on top of me, I am such a loner, but a loner who loves people! I know it sounds strange, but by writing my thoughts and memories down I have moved on from the stressed place I was in.

So now, as with all awards it is wonderful to receive them but equally rewarding to pass them on to some one else,
so now I have great pleasure in passing the Arte Y Pico award to the blogs below, each of them I look forward to reading and they all have beautiful pictures.

Cabbage Roses and Cupcakes
No Special Effects
The Wandering Eater -
(this blogs transports me to NY and lets me dream about the things I could try if I ever got there, it was also one of the first blogs I discovered.)

The you make my day award is going to these blogs

Cookie Baker Lynn
Domestic Goddess in Training
Hannah's Country Kitchen

Thanks again to Marie, and all bloggers out there who do their best to inspire others.

Angela, thank you so much! I hope you're not too winded from your virtual trips to my country, heh :) I'll start dropping by here too-- I hope you're not too self-conscious, surfacing within the blogging community! :D

Angela, you are a constant inspiration to me! I am so glad that you are enjoying the blogging! I know that starting mine has made me think a lot more. I tend to be a very introverted person and like you, I can be a hermit. Hang in there!

Marie said...

Angela, you so deserved this. You have a gentle and caring spirit and it shows through every one of your posts. I think we can all really identify with you. You speak to the heart of every woman! Have you gotten your package yet? Tee hee, can't wait for it to arrive! I hope you love it!

Angela, thank you so much for the award. I'm so flattered, it's lovely when someone else likes what you do! I love the lemon meringue, by the way - I'd say your family are very lucky to have you!
