Katy Lin at TheGreatAdventure, she has the most beautiful smile and such a joy filled heart. Her sweet love for her hubby of one year, and determination to lift up marriage, is wonderful.

Lisa at StopNSmellTheChocolates, because she has become a good online friend. I really love her blog and, of course, Chocolate Fridays!!!! :)

Christina at TheEsselmanFamily. She is a beautiful lady with a keen eye for great photos. I enjoy reading her blog and finding out what's going on in her neck of the woods - TEXAS! :)

Jessica at D&J because I have known her since she was just a young goofy girl and now she is an gorgeous, young married woman!

I chose all of these ladies because I'd love to see how they would answer these questions. Have a blessed day!
