    Hi Debbie, thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself with us. I am also young at heart. Age is just numbers I believe.

    I really enjoyed reading your list and getting to know you better, you sound like a fun girl to hang out with! I’ll be composing my list too, thank you for thinking of me for the award! ~Ann

    Thank you so very much Debbie! I look forward to sharing some bits about me in a future post! I love your list, and know without any doubt, that we’d get along well sitting on the front porch and drinking a lemonade! I love reading too!

    Thanks so much for the award Debbie! I will try to blog about this asap! I also try to be a vegetarian and if I had a front porch I would be sitting on it! 🙂

    Thank you so much for thinking of me, Debbie. I don’t normally participate in awards, but I sure appreciate the nomination.
    I just made copycat Red Lobster Garlic Cheddar Biscuits to go with our pasta dinner at home tonight! They’re soooo easy and super yummy! 🙂

    Dearest Debbie, thanks for this honor 🙂 I too enjoy your blog as I found it honest and something I could relate to. To be honest, we share quite a bit of things based on this few fact here. I took my parents (they are still in town!) to Red Lobster and they were amazed at the size of the portion. I was really happy to see them enjoying the giant crab legs as they are something rare back home..

    You are wonderful sunshine- so the award is aptly given! I love the people you’ve put me in with- what a great group of warm women! (I can’t join in, but) I am so grateful for the nod and the mention. Mad love to you, dear Debbie! xo. Bella Q

    So much fun to get to know you better! I love writing stories and sometimes poetry too. 🙂 And thank you so much for nomination, Debbie! I really really appreciate! I’ve done some facts about myself recently, it’s a fun writing project to work on. 🙂

    I’m so behind! Thank you, Debbie Dear Heart! I’m so flattered that you nominated me. It is always wonderful when great women like you think enough of me to include me in these events. I regret that I’ve just about worn out my list of women to send these to,and have run out of personal tidbits so I can’t come out to play, but I’ll always remember the honor.


I love to hear from readers,
