I HEART you…

This is dedicated to the ones I love. I HEART you! BFB’s …a.k.a. Best Friend Bloggers. Thank you for helping me to be better. Thank you for bringing light and laughter into sometimes an otherwise blah day. Thank you for teaching me and opening my eyes to be more grateful for even having a blah day!! Thank you for sharing your knowledge through your recipes, beautiful art and the written word. You inspire me to share the love around and well you just inspire me in general. On that note… here goes…..h1 I have been a naughty girl and have put off spreading the love that has so kindly been passed on to me. Certainly it is not because I am not grateful, simply it is because, life got in the way. You know what I am sayin’ right? It is wonderful to blog about life but we have to live it too, otherwise we would have nothing to blog about! I know, you know…. K, well lets cut to the chase here. I have ALOT of  catching up to do and people to thank….h2 I am going to cheat a little…maybe ALOT…. I am going to make up my own rules. I am talking about those lovely awards that we are all passing around. The ones that make us feel warm and fuzzy when we get the news that we have been nominated for ………(fill in the blank)  ta da!! The best part though is getting to give them to other people. Sorry, I am rambling…. stay with me here…

These are people you will be really happy to have found, if you haven’t already. h31~ Sarah over at happens to be a BFF, love you Sarah, xOOx, and has gone over the moon and back and given me three lovely awards. Geez Sarah, you nut. I am humbled and crazy grateful for this. Blog of the Year 2012, The Beautiful Blogger and Wonderful Team Member Readership Award.  WTF?  On the flip side though, HER blog is awesomesauce! FULL of beautiful images, inspiring musings, humour and candor. That house elf is always busy cooking up  an original idea or ten. GO, check it out! You will love her/it too….pinky swear

2~ Francesca and Stefano , a supremely lovely husband and wife dynamic duo, write and photograph a gorgeous food and wine blog over at I don’t think gorgeous does it enough justice. Its more like heavenly! They will have you wanting to cook up whatever delish’ recipe they are laying down. Promise! With Stefanos’ beautiful photos and Francescas’ Italian recipes you will be literally drooling! Honestly two of the sweetest, kindest people I have met out here in “blogland”. They have so kindly given to me Blog of the Year Award 2012 and Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. Thank you guys! Blowing long distance kisses.

3~ Now there is Alison at Adventures in Wonderland /.  She and her husband Don are self proclaimed nomads and have been travelling around the world photographing and documenting their adventures. I am so happy to be an armchair traveller and read of all the wild and wonderful places they visit. She is a lovely lady and I am so happy to have found their blog. She has given to me The Shine On Award as well as the Versatile Blogger Award.Thanks Alison it will be fun to pass it along!

4~…..Daisy and the Fox… her real name is Bec and she is 17. She wants to ignite some creativity in us. And she does! I love her blog and her recipes. The spinach dip with rosemary garlic dipping chips sounds sooo good. Thank you for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award. I really appreciate it.

  2. Wow, this post is so full of love, I feel like I’m a naked baby surrounded by a village of hugging saints. Congrats to you, Kimberly, for all your awards. I love being in the company of some of our blogging best friends.
    Thank you so much for the nomination. Today, I will see hearts wherever I look, thanks to you.{{{Hugs}}} Kozo

  3. Oh my goodness I love this post, and you, so much! Thank you, thank you, for wrapping me up in a warm fuzzy hug and kindly including my blog in this loving post. Although I know many of your (our) blogging friends here, there’s some I haven’t met yet and I am happily going to visit them all. Thank you for encouraging me to create another ‘my rules or no rules’ kind of post to share the love around, in our own way.
    Love and Hugs, Gina

  4. Isn’t this post one of the loveliest posts I have ever read? Thank you for your kindness. You make us sound such a wonderful couple. Be careful otherwise people are going to start believing you 😉
    Can I thank you twice for this award you are passing on to us? I really love the illustration of it. I know it’s childish but what can I say? 🙂
    Not everyone has the courage to roll the way you do. Keep following the rhythm of your heart.
    Love and kisses back to you.

  5. Sorry, Kimberly, if it took me forever to catch up and say THANK YOU twice, both for your lovely words and for the award!!! You are the sweetest!
    I bow to you in gratitude! 🙂
    Take care!
