An amazing award!

Melody gave me this amazing award. I'm so honored. To think I inspire someone.

So, I'm supposed to pass it on to 3 people. Like Melody, I decided to pass it on to 3 blogs that really inspire me and make me want to do more towards a self-sufficient life.

First, I want to give this award to Danielle at Touch The Earth Farm. She knew about and encouraged my dream when it was barely an idea. She always welcomed me to her farm so I could learn from her, see how she was doing things, and dream of the life I would live one day. She does such a great job of running her homestead and getting it to provide most of what they need. I wish I still lived close enough to her to visit and learn from her. I never even got to meet her cow Bella :(

Second, Pam at Life On a Southern Farm. She takes such good care of her animals and is so good at making useful things for the farm. I'm inspired by her to get more animals and learn to make more things myself instead of buying them.

And third, Lisa at Laughing Orca Ranch. She has all the animals I want and loves them so much. She has the type of joy for life that I inspire to have. I love looking at all the pictures of her animals. And she can tell a heck of a story! She's going through a hard time now but her spirit still shines through in her posts.

It was hard to only pick 3! Every blog I read inspires me in some way.
