I'm A lucky Blogger!
I'm a lucky blogger, because I have a great friend in Christy, from Christy's Coffee Break who also happens to be my writing partner on A Hint Of Poetry. She's done so much for me that it's unbelievable, and now she added A Nice Place In The Sun as one of her best blog stands! You know like a lemonade or pop stand? The first job of the entrepreneur who is ready to enter the stock market when they're six? Remember setting up lemonade stands when you were little and drinking all the lemonade,... or spilling it all over the ground... and loosing your money,.. then getting in trouble because it was irresponsible? Well I don't remember anything like that either, I've just heard other people mention it. By the way, I do know that's a bake stand in the image. The image just reminded me of a lemonade stand, in the same way that visiting blogs reminds me of visiting a lemonade stand, plus I like the picture.
I've been extremely fortunate when it comes to meeting great friends in blogging, and Christy is also a blogging mentor, who is teaching me everything I know. This creative blogger is also the contributing writer on Mike and Tish's blog, Blogs We Luv who also happens to be the blog that created what Christy has referred to as the "blog bumper sticker" blog badge that is I love Your Blog! I thought that was a great way of referring to this really cool award created by Mike and Tish, who seem to be really cool people. Plus, any friend of Christy's is indeed a friend of mine. Hence, I'll have to see what Blogs We Luv is all about. I think these kind of badges are a great way to show our friends we love their blogs plus they look great in our sidebars. Thank goodness for these three bloggers, Christy,(who is also the Writer's Reviews awards creator)Mike, and Tish, for their creative kindness! I would to also thank Mike And Tish for suggesting ten bloggers to pass the I love your blog badge too, since it is always so hard to choose.
I tagged the blogs I love that have been so good to A Nice Place In The Sun, and a few new bloggers who I'd like to introduce to the rest of my friends.
Here are the blogs I love, and if they had lemonade stands I would also buy their lemonade!

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
