A Penny Saved: We Won a Sunshine Award!!

What a beautiful Spring-like day we just enjoyed here in Indiana, made even lovelier this evening when we discovered that A Penny Saved has been selected to receive a Sunshine Award! This is the first award to our one month old blog and is a truly unexpected honor. We were selected for this award by Mel from MelCole's Wall of Experience, Skills and Talents, and want to once again say you thank you very much for choosing us! We hope to continue to provide helpful savings information to Mel and all of our readers!

Now it is my pleasure to brighten the day of others by passing this Sunshine Award on to twelve bloggers of my choice!

You are welcome, I truly enjoy your blog .... I tried to choose based on that criteria and it turned out to be much more difficult than I had anticipated to choose only a dozen blogs! It did make for a wide variety in the choices though.

You are all so welcome.

@Pam - thanks so much for your offer of help to us here as a fledgling blog and for answering all my bazillion questions!

@Julie - I love your blog for all the sentimental reasons. It brings back such lovely memories for me of our family during our military years in Europe. I can hardly wait to see what adventures are ahead now that you have returned to the States!! Thanks so much for sharing.

@Mike - Green IS our future and I am happy to bring it to the forefront whenever I can. I totally agree that us bloggers need to stick together and support one another. I thank you for your support!
