The :-) Award

My dear friend Stephanie has granted me with this adorable SMILE AWARD! I just wanted to thank her very much for thinking of me upon passing this on to other bloggers/friends.

I try my very best to learn from my mistakes(criteria #3)...sometimes that is why I make them. Just to prove my own theory right or wrong. (criteria #4)LOL It is just nice to know that others see me in a way that I see myself.
