I've just received my very first blog award! I am so excited!!! The SMILE award comes from one of my favorite bloggers, Erika at Midnight Madras. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am truly so very appreciative! You were one of the first preppy bloggers to welcome me to the blogging community and I'm so very glad to be here!

3. Make mistakes (Ohhh boy, if you only knew. I could be a professional in mistake making).
4. Learn from others (My best learning tool is other folks).
5. Be a positive contributor to the blog world (I would like to think that my blog makes a positive contribution to blogland. If even one person does one thing in a more eco-friendly fashion, then I've done my job).
