I've Got Sunshine...

On a cloudy (and rainy) day!

Both Trish from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover & Brittany from Molly Lou Gifts blessed me with a little extra sunshine recently. And truth be told, Mrs. Grumpy McGrumpypants has needed it. Between staying an extra day in Maine, being totally over the snow & cold & longing for warm weather - well, these were just the pick me ups I needed.

The Sunshine Award is given to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blog world. I'd say that 95% of the time, I'm a happy little ray of sunshine, so I'm thrilled that they see this in me.

The rules, once this award is received, are as follows:
1. Post the logo on blog.
2. Pass the award on to fellow bloggers.
3. Link the nominees' blogs so others can get to know them.
4. Let nominees know they have won this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person you received this award from.

So, following the rules, make sure & go check out these bloggers that make me smile.

Everyone of these women make me smile regularly. I consider them (as well as Brittany & Trish) part of my tribe.

I read something recently from The Secret is in the Sauce about building your tribe & I realized that I already have something of a tribe with these ladies (I'd link to it, but it keeps timing out right now). Your tribe are the people who shower you with comments or emails or tweets. Those who seek you out when you're having a "blah" day or a fabulous week.

I love that they are part of my tribe & that I'm part of theirs. If you haven't been over to check them out before, make sure to go pop in. I promise they'll make you think, they'll make you laugh, they may even make you snort coffee out of your nose laughing so hard.

Are you part of my tribe & I don't know it? Come say "Hello".
