Sunshine and Versatile Blogger Awards

I was recently nominated for both the Sunshine award and the Versatile Blogger Awards. I admit I have been a bit lax about my acceptance of these. I love to receive these awards, but I find it difficult to keep coming up with blogs to nominate, having only limited time to spend reading blogs on a daily basis. To that end I will be nominating the following blogs for both of these awards.
