Ho, ho, ho, my first blog award.

This is a milestone! My recent friend and fellow blogger Kimberly at Terra Del Sole, who "appears to be" also a fellow Italian gal, totally unexpectedly, today gave this award to me.

It's an honor to accept it and pass it to other 10, hmmm, blogging friends.

(understand me, this is my first one, may be with the next, if there is one ;-) I will not follow the rules).

So, first, 10 things I love:

1- Me!

(Recently I took the responsibility to love and care about myself, and bring me happiness, and I'm glad I started, at least at the age of forty..something)

2- My family. (All included but my two kids first :-D)

3- Friends and kind people, yes, I love to love.

3- Cuddles, I love to hug and kiss, kids and hubby.

4- Contemplate nature's beauty, like skies, sunsets, panoramas, trees, flowers....

5- Life ( not always ).

6- Laughing and smiling.

7- Blogging, and fellow bloggers, because mostly they bring me a smile.

8- To learn, discover and understand.

9- A tea or hot chocolate with pastries in my cozy home.

10- In summer I opt for ice cream.

11- Nutella, ops, only ten things, but, I have many, many more... oh well!

Now "10" blogs I love:

La mia cucina in India.

She is my Mom, I love her and her blog, but I know she hates these things, so I exonerate her from the rules ;-)

11th Heaven's Homemaking Haven.

Jen is so witty, kind and cool, with her mega family, she is my favorite read in the blogosphere.

Red Pine Mountain.

Mountain Woman is a wise woman I appreciate a lot, she lives in the woods (in a house) and she loves nature, her horse, her dogs, and reading. Mountain Man is an amazing builder and crafter ( and cook ).

My Little Life.

Mama M. is sooo funny, she always makes me smile.

Carma Sez.

A recent discover, she is funny, a bit craz..ahem..just kidding, and kind, and she has a witty point of view on life.

Specialty Recipes From My(e) Kitchen.

The Top Secret Diet.

The Top Secret Dieter is so humorous in her way to talk about weight loss issues.

Oh! Only seven blogs, these are the ones I'm affectionate most, there are others that I appreciate, but now I'm tired, sorry!

  4. Ah, you deserve an award so much more than anyone. You have such a kind and generous spirit. I was very glad to read that you are loving and caring for yourself. I was late to do that as well but it's so important.
    Thank you for the lovely, kind words you said about me and my blog. You have also pointed the way to other blogs I had never heard of.
    Thanks so very much!!!

  5. I just wrote a comment and I hope you get it! I'll check back later and see if it's there. Sometimes blogger is very frustrating.
