Two lovely bloggers, Biren from Roti n Rice and our dear BrownievilleGirl both recently me awarded me the "Lovely Blog Award". Every blogger gal (and guy) I know, strives to put their heart, soul and sass into their food, recipes, photos and posts. This award means a lot to me because when I blog... I do end up putting my heart into my recipes and posts. I wouldn't have it any other way. They are full of my love and magic (most of the time). I will admit that I have made a thing or two (or three) when I have been a bit ticked off. Definately not the right energy going into the food, but therapeutically speaking... I came out a better person after I cooked and baked through my anger.
When I think of lovely, I think of Jackie O., Kate Middleton's sapphire blue dress, a freshly cut bouquet of flowers, a kiss from my kids, or the fresh air filling up my lungs. There are plenty of days...(many of them) where I forget the loveliness of the world, I see things as ugly, forced, difficult and annoying. These awards are a reminder to step back into the moment, breathe and realize that there is more good in this world than there is bad. Find the good and praise it.. right?
Some of the things I think are lovely are these last remnants of autumn... my last hike through the woods...
Thank you ladies... I adore both of your blogs, you both inspire me with your amazing creations. You are both creative, meticulous and lovely! I only wish I could sit in both of your kitchens for a week and indulge in all of your tasty goodies, both savory and sweet. Thank you both again for your friendship and appreciation.
