Awards and other fun things!

I've had a few nice things come my way and I need to acknowledge them!
Isn't this the cutest award? This award is for blogs that "show kindness and sweetness in their entries" and it was given to me by Jennifer of Zaankali's Adventures, Kim of Scattered Stones and Melissa of Melissa's World. Thanks to all of you! I know all three of these ladies in real life as well as the blogging world and can tell you that they are kind and sweet in real life too! I'm not a rule follower as far as passing on awards. It's too hard to pick some out. You are all kind and sweet so anyone reading this may grab this award!
.
This little button was made for me by Demara of Demara blog. She is really good on the computer and is always changing her layout and doing fun things, that I am hopeless at. She made this button for me because I was first to read and comment on one of her posts. Thanks Demara!
.
Last but not least was a package I received in the mail this week. It came all the way from Portugal! Lara of Prossigo para o alvo sent it to me along with a cute hand made card. The design comes from a famous Portuguese tile. She also invited Bob and I to visit Portugal and stay with them. Thanks so much, Lara! I really appreciate the watch and your friendship! We don't have any plans for traveling that far yet, but if we do I'll let you know. If you come to the US, you may stay with us.

Mari,

The award is adorable, as is the button and you are very deserving of both.

What a beautiful gesture on behalf of your friend in Portugal. I do hope that one day the two of you can meet.

Take care and enjoy the weekend. We are to get some warmer weather. It was quite chilly here today and the wind made it seem more so.

Blessings,
Mary
