        Aw this has been such a joy to read!!
        I’ve got to know you in ways I never thought I would.
        I feel like we’ve been sat at your kitchen table and chatting away for ages, getting to know each other.
        A totally fabulous award acceptance.

          Hi!! I am sooooo glad you like it! This is like my world record fastest reply to an award, like ever. It usually takes me forever to respond…

          Thank you for nominating me! It was super fun to answer you questions. They are very thought out and creative! Love that you feel like you were at my kitchen table!! Wish you were. Come over anytime!!

          • thecobweboriumemporium June 14, 2017 / 4:44 pm

            I’d love to Jessica… maybe one day. In the future.
            We could all then meet up somewhere and have a good old time getting to know each other and doing lots of hugging!

            Aw… that’s an idea which is making me sit here smiling like the Cheshire Cat. :D

              I’ll add it to my bucket list!!

        That’s so kind of you sis to include me. Having met someone as kind, considerate and just plain old nice as you is all the award I need. The offer of sailing with you and yours still stands as I make my way down south in a couple years. I look forward to meeting you in person!

        • Jessica June 14, 2017 / 5:55 pm

          Wow… You are beyond kind. Thank you so much for your kind words. I wasn’t expecting them, what a nice surprise!! About a year and a half ago you nominated me for my very first ever award, which just so happens was the Leibster Award! I was so excited and had no clue what it even was! Ha ha. Thought it would be fun to hear if you like homemade casserole or some fancy dinner… We’d love to meet you and take a ride on that beautiful boat. My husband served 4 years in the Coast Guard and loves the water! Thank you for your kind offer!

            Light, sunrise, country, casserole, wildflowers, blue, spring, cream, 7 years, creek, and above all else, friends like you!

            • Jessica June 14, 2017 / 6:09 pm

              I pretty much guessed most of yours right, though I didn’t know about the color or the pie. I’m going to have to google 7 Years, and that was a super sweet comment at the end. You have been an amazing friend to all of us bloggers, too. You always read and comment and are kind to others. :)

        What a lovely lady you are! :) :) Thanks for this, Jess. I hope that at least some of your wishes come true.

        • Jessica June 15, 2017 / 5:38 am

          Hi– thank you so much!! Well, #1 is probably out, we had no winter this year, ha ha. It may be while for #3, but I’m hopeful❤️ If/when #2 happens, we will be able to buy a farm/land and move. Thanks for reading. Hope you have a nice weekend with your daughter. 😊😊

        Thank you for the nomination. :-) I am honored you thought of me. I do appreciate the nomination. With that said, I hope you don’t mind if I decline at this time, as I am award free. Knowing you think enough of me to nominate me is award enough. :-) Thank you again for your nomination and continued friendship. :-)

        So nice to learn more about you, Jessica. I also can’t bear the thought of liver and we have a granny that is 95 years old.

        • Jessica July 3, 2017 / 5:13 pm

          Cool!! We have things in common. Liver is the worst, 95+ is the best. Hope you are having a wonderful day!!
