    Congratulations! Love how you put them all together into one post, there’s only so many times you can write on the same subject. I just love the idea of bloggers encouraging and promoting other bloggers.

      Thanks Karen – This award really means a lot to me. To be recognized by your peers as deserving of such an award is truly a great feeling. The idea to put them all on one post made sense to me at the time, however the process was definitely a process. I had a lot of technical difficulties while posting, which I believe most of the errors occurred between the chair and the keyboard. LOL

    TY for putting into words what I have been avoiding thus far, for fear of inadequacy.

    I hate baking too, but you're right — it's worth the smile. It's been too long, so I think I will follow in your wise footsteps & get out the cookie dough.

    Sugar Cookies are my favorite. I absolutely loved the colored frosted w/sprinkles – the kind you get from the grocery store (pink, yellow, blue, green). You're funny…when I say blue moon I mean blue moon.

    Well said, Jae Mac. You're a wise momma. I'm glad to stop by your blog and always leave it thinking… Since you bake once in a blue moon, let me give you my address. I love, love, love the sugar cookies 😉
