Woohoo! My first award!
The first time I saw one of these I thought, "Blogger chain mail. Great." Then I took a closer look and decided I like the idea. I don't have to forward it to 50 people or the world will end, it's just a nice way of letting people know they are appreciated.
I got my first blogger award from UberGrumpy. This is even more of a thrill than seeing my follower number increase by one! I have to admit I did a little happy dance when I saw it. Thank you!
Now to pass it on to 5 people. This is a tough decision. I follow way more blogs than I could ever possibly keep up with because there are so many good ones. I have more than 5 favorites.
I'm hoping none of them view it as annoying chain mail. Pass on to 5 people is the only rule. And apparently the award only has Santa until after Christmas, then it's just the lemonade stand without Santa. Alice made it more festive for the holidays.
Blissseeker: Rider of the Storm Don't be afraid of the adult content warning. It's not x-rated. The most moving, poetic blog on my list. Start with her writings about the black butterflies.
Kate: Calamity, Kids and Other Stuff Not your typical mommy blog. Yes, her kids are cute. Yes, she knows how to discuss other subjects as well. Go congratulate her on remaining in remission and wish her good health, luck, and success with her writing class.
Kate: Secret Office Confessions Her stuff is better than The Office - British or American version.
Poppy: Poppy's Dream Fields Visit her blog, then send her a postcard even though the contest is probably over. I promise I'm sending mine this weekend. I'm such a procrastinator...
Tammy: Sugo and Sunshine This woman is living my dream. Ever since I watched Under the Tuscan Sun, I've been dreaming of picking up and starting over someplace new. My hero.
Now to figure out how to put it on my sidebar...
