It’s Sunday evening and I had such a great day. My family and I spent our Sunday afternoon visiting local farms at an event called farmcrawl and needless to say, the kids are out for the night! I took many great pics that I’ll be sure to share this week!
I wanted to take some time and thank some foodie friends for various blog awards! Thank you so much for visiting, commenting, and befriending me on the blogosphere
I’ve received foodie awards in the past that I’ve failed to mention, and for that I’m so sorry! Life get’s the better of me, but I wanted to thank you for thinking of me. Blog awards always make me smile
In the past week, I’ve received two blog awards!
