I was honored to be included in a list of "Stylish Bloggers," by Anna Applegate, a designer and blogger, also from North Carolina. Her blog, An Apple A Day, is one of my favorites AND she has a booth at Hunt & Gather, a must-visit shop in Raleigh. I also received the award from Megan of Pink to Green. It's such a fresh and inpsiring blog with great recipes and stylish ideas and images! Thank you Anna and Megan, I'm truly honored!

Here are the rules, once you receive the award:

#1) Thank and link back to the person who awarded you.
#2) Share 7 things about yourself.
#3) Award 10 great bloggers that you have RECENTLY discovered
#4) Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award

Seven things about me:

1) My faith and my family are the most important things to me. I get to wake up every morning to the sound of my daughter singing and it starts my day off perfectly!

2) My favorite movies are Stand By Me, Good Will Hunting and The English Patient.

3) Some of the designers I'm inpsired by are: Steven Gambrel, Ruthie Sommers, and Sara Gilbane.

4) But the sources of inspiration are, magazines (my favorites are Canadian House & Home, House Beautiful and Lonny), design books and of course the many gifted and stylish bloggers out there. I have been so inspired by design and lifestyle blogs and am grateful to their authors for sharing their talents and ideas!

5) My guilty pleasures are Starbucks, The Bachelor on ABC and peanut butter frozen yogurt (I'm on the call list when it's in at TCBY).

6) I am a summer girl. I day dream about the beach all winter long.

7) I have the most wonderful, steady, supportive husband. He is perfect for me and he's my best friend and greatest gift in this world.
