Oh wait, that’s the Golden Globes.
I want to thank those who have sent awards my way and also to apologize for taking so long to get this post together. With getting ready for vacation, going on vacation and getting things done after coming back from vacation, this has been my first opportunity to assemble this post.
Katrina at Freedom to a Full Life generously nominated me for several awards in June.
The Dedicated Follower Award
The Kreativ Blogger Award
The Versatile Blogger Award.
Thank you, Katrina! Yours was one of the first blogs I followed when I joined the WordPress community and I continue to enjoy your wonderful posts. You always leave me with things to ponder.
Last week, Clare Flourish nominated me for this beautiful award:
The One Lovely Blog Award
Thank you, Clare. Your insights and dedication to honest and heartfelt dialogue inspires, stimulates and enlightens and I so enjoy your perspective.
Finally, Athena Brady sent this wonderful award my way:
The Fabulous Blog Ribbon
Thank you, Athena for your friendship and wisdom. I love the topics that you discuss (Angels, miracles and dreams to name just a few) and your viewpoint.
I have decided to pick just one blogger for each of these awards today to bestow a nomination (except for Clare for which I nominate twice), but I am creating a BlogRoll of some of my favorite blogs on a separate page and I also am creating a page for my awards where I will permanently acknowledge those who have honored me with these lovely awards and display them proudly.
For those of you nominated, please know that I am offering this award as a way of honoring your work in the WordPress community. If you feel that you would like to participate, please acknowledge my nomination with a link-back and feel free to nominate as many or as few blogs as you feel appropriate. If you don’t wish to participate, that’s fine too. My desire is to spread the word about your blog, but not to create any stress or added work for you. My feeling is that these awards provide a way for us to find each other and learn of the amazing wealth of creativity and diversity in the blogosphere. So pass it forward if you are so inclined. Finally, one of the common threads (sets of rules) throughout these awards is to share things about ourselves that may not be known through our blogs so I’ll share those at the end of this post.
So without any further delay:
For The Dedicated Follower Award, I nominate Russ Towne - A Grateful Man. I think Russ is probably the only person who has read every post on my blog! His comments are always appreciated and I so enjoy his blog. It is filled with humor, love, and inspiration. Thank you, Russ for being here.
For The Kreativ Blogger Award, I nominate Russel Ray Photos Russel is a wonderful photographer who lives in San Diego and shares his love of that beautiful city along with his fantastic flowers and his cat Zoey. (I’m a sucker for the cat pictures.) He’s funny, interesting and always entertaining.
For The Versatile Blogger Award and The Kreativ Blogger Award, I nominate Clare Flourish. She is a gifted writer who shares her perspectives on her life as a Trans Woman as well as her viewpoints on religion. She always leaves me with a lot to think about.
For The One Lovely Blog Award, I nominate Cooking Intuitive written by Julie Hansen. Juie’s primary blog, Julie Hansen Intuitive is where she shares her insights and experience as an intuitive healer. Cooking Intuitive is her wonderful inspirations with food. Her ideas are fun, easy and tasty – and for those of you who adhere to a vegetarian or vegan diet, Julie’s blog is a wealth of information.
For The Fabulous Blog Ribbon, I nominate Searunner. I love his photos from around the world.
Thank you, again, to my nominators and congratulations to all of my nominees and thanks for all the blessings you bring to me.
So a few things about me:
1. I love just about any food with the exception of a handful of things – and Rutabaga turnips is at the top of the list (of things I won’t eat, that is).
2. My favorite music genre is jazz.
3. In my twenties and thirties, I was a competitive runner.
4. I bought new skis this year – Volkl Kenjas and I LOVE them!
5. I like to write with a fountain pen.
I think that’s it for now!
