Award Winning Saturday

I've been wanting to come up with an award for quite sometime now, so finally here it is, The Uplifting Blogger Award.

One of my blogger friends thinks that the award loses importance if we don't take the time to name the recipients. I usually just tell all of you to take it because I hate rules and it takes so long to link everyone! So, here's what the award is for and here are the 'suggested' rules for passing it along ;)

This award goes to fellow bloggers who visit frequently and raise my spirits with their kind words of encouragement, their beautiful images and their wonderful outlook on life. They make blogging a positive experience and continue to make my life richer.

Please feel free to pass this award along to your friends. I ask that you do name them but you don't have to link to them. Just stop by their blogs and let them know you've given them this award. Here are my recipients in no particular order. Thanks to all of you who raise me up! xoxo
