A Smile is Contagious

I've been given the “You Make Me Smile Award” by Don. It was really a nice surprise to find I was thought of , much less awarded!

I understand this award was created by Bridget at Miles to Go Before We Sleep, and is touching many people and sharing smiles across the Blogosphere!

So, in the true spirit of the award, I'm passing this one to 10 people who make me smile.

Old Horsetail Snake is always good for a smile, if not a giggle. Reading his blog is what inspired me to start my own!

Fluid Pudding was also one of the first blogs I read on a regular basis. Her daily antics with children and creativity are proof that a little insanity is definitely a good thing.

Throughly Modern Millie has an unwaivering optimistic attitude. She occasionally posts some great recipes, too.

Peaceable Imperatrix shares the importance of flexibility and family teamwork.

The End of Motherhood is a source of comfort to those who have experienced the empty nest.

Smart at Love empowers and offers a much-needed objective viewpoint on relationships.

Blackbird is just so eccentric... and eccentric people are always entertaining.

Jen on the Edge reminds me of my previous life with two little girls.

Slouching Mom who always tells a good story.

(Un)relaxed Dad opens his home with tales of his little one (and the one on the way).

Whew! That was tough to choose 10 because there are so many, many good blogs out there. But do please make a point of visiting these, if you haven't already.
