wonderful news all around!

The sweet and beautiful Gentri from Gentri Lee seriously made my day by awarding me with this award!

Since I started blogging, I never thought I would meet such an array of wonderfully kind, creative and warm group of people. I look forward to many more adventures via blogging!
Here's the three random facts about me: (since I'm suppose to do this after the award)

1. I don't drink milk.
2. I like to watch Disney shows.
3. I collect dead light bulbs.

Now it's my turn to award five of my favorite fellow bloggers!
(This is so difficult considering I love so many blogs!)

1. Jillian from A Jillian stitches....
She is fashionable, creative, beautiful and talented. Need I say more?
2. Danielle from tongue tied in awe
She is one of the first blogger friends I've made and her blog seriously inspires me daily!
3. Kelsey from Kelsey and Covey
Absolutely adorable and her blog never fails to make me smile.
4. Audrey from Putting Me Together
Her outfits always inspire me!
5. Karlya from casual bedlam
Because we're so similar, except she's a little bit cooler :]
Fixed the spelling ;]

So for those of you I awarded, pass the award along to five blogs that you dig!

The innovative Bree from The Art of Being Cool came up with this wonderful idea called "The Small World Project" which is a personal monthly snail-mail relationship between bloggers. I was chosen to be one of the first four bloggers along with Bree, to send each other creative snail mails for a month! Check out her post about the whole idea and click here to meet the other participants I'll be getting to know soon :] The project starts in October and I'm really excited!

Other wonderful news include:
+ My first Her Campus writing assignment! (More on this later I promise)
+ The save the date photos for my best friends have been taken, but we'll have to keep them a secret until the invites go out! Wish I could show you, but you'll just have to wait :]
+ I've just been really happy and excited about the future of this blog!
