Sunshine time

I am really privileged to receive the sunshine award from Miss Riki – what a surprise.  I joined UBC after the first week – better late than never – and have loved the challenge of learning to set up a blog.  Writing daily has kept me motivated and I really want to try and keep it up until the next one in September – I think?  I never have a chance to read everyone’s posts so this award gave me the chance to check out a lot more bloggers and their contributions.  What a great way to keep our minds active and to share our thoughts with others who really care.  Thank you so much Riki Cleveland – if I could pass it on to you I would.  Please check out her blog here:

The 10 Bloggers To Whom I Bestow The Sunshine Award:


  1. Thank you! I like pink roses, but yellow ones are super pretty too! The childhood cancer ribbon is gold, so yellow roses tie in to that. :) Love your dog too! Mine is a tad bit bigger! :)

  2. I knew you had already been given this award, but like Miss Riki I enjoy your blog and wanted to share it with my readers, so I tagged you in my post as well. Hope you don't mind. :)
