Great New Awards

Today, I would like to finally acknowledge some great awards that I have received over the past couple of weeks. I’m a bit behind lately, so please forgive me my blogging pals who gave me these awards.

I received the “I Love Your Blog” award from Tahtimbo at Everyday Living . I’ve received this award before, but it never can get old to me. The greatest compliment is to do something that you enjoy and have other people really like it. So I’m thrilled. :-) Tahtimbo is a stay at home dad who writes a great slice of life blog. He also shares my interest in shows about ghosts :-) Please check him out.

Now I’d like to pass this award along to a few of my many favorites in the blogosphere. This is a hard choice because there are so many blogs that I love, but here goes. And I will mention here what I have read on other blogs….to those that I pass these awards along to, I understand that some may not be able to participate in passing these along. So no pressure :-) I just pass these awards along in the spirit in which they were given, to highlight some blogs that I thoroughly enjoy. So without further ado….here are my picks for the “I Love Your Blog” award:

Health Nut Wannabee Mom
My Life in Italy
The Many Ramblings of Me
Rambling Stuff
Thinking Out Loud Blog
Just Me

The rules are that you link back to the person that gave you the award and then pass it along to seven of your favorite blogs. Also let them know that they have received the award.

Next, I received a cool award that I had never received before, called the “Butterfly Award” and I was lucky enough to receive it twice. I got this one from two great blogging friends, Mike at Rambling Stuffand Ivanhoe at Communiqué by Ivanhoe . Mike is so sweet because he initially gave this award out that day to a list of blogs that he loves, and then showing the big heart he has, he left me a comment to say that he wanted to give this to me too. What a great guy :-) Both Mike and Ivanhoe have great blogs that I love to visit and they always have something interesting to say. So please check both of them out…they are both very kind folks :)
Here are my picks for this award:

Confessions of a Fitness Diva
Writing to Survive
The World As I See It
Jewelry Rockstar
Regina’s Family Seasons
Small Town Mommy

The rules for this one are to link back to the person who gave it to you and then pick seven of your favorite blogs and let them know.

And last, but certainly not least, is this fab award I got from Heidi at Health Nut Wannabee Mom . Heidi is so sweet and I love her blog. She gives the best health tips on her blog mixed together with lots of fun, so please check her out. Heidi gave me the “Uber Amazing Blog Award”. Isn’t that an impressive title for an award…wow! :)

Here are the rules for this award:
1)Put the logo on your blog
2)Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3)Nominate five other blogs
4)Add links to these blogs on your blog
5)Leave a message for your nominee to let them know

Here are my picks for this award:

People You Need To Know
Communiqué by Ivanhoe
Red Pine Mountain
The Leaping Thought
Gifts of the Journey

Again, I’m so thankful to have been given so many great awards courtesy of Tahtimbo, Ivanhoe, Mike, and Heidi. Please drop by and check out their blogs and all of the other favorites I’ve listed here. Happy reading! :-)

I was sort of looking around for your Paris pics... Did I miss them?

Wow! Thanks Dori! I was just conversing with a friend about Butterflies and how transformative they are. Plus each one of is or can be a butterfly.

I appreciate this award, plus I like the cool label too!

All the awards you received are so well deserved. You just have the most wonderful blog and it's such a pleasure to read.

Thanks so much for thinking about me! I appreciate it.

j said...

More awards for your blog?? I am shocked, shocked! :) Really, it's no surprise. I've been trying to figure out how to write it so that it makes sense ... anyone reading here gets such a sense of your warm personality through your stories. It is a wonderful place to hang out.

Thank you for passing on the Butterfly Award, too.

Dori said...

Thanks. And I’m glad I could pass on the uber award to you….love your blog my buddy! :)

I’m glad you like my blog. Thanks for your kind words. :) I’m so glad you stopped by. Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me. My Paris pics slipped my mind. I will have to get those up along with some others soon. I love taking photos :)

Jewelry Rockstar,
You are so welcome! :) I’m so glad that I could pass this butterfly along to you…you’re right they are transformative. I have a butterfly ring that I used to wear, but when I came here, I left it behind by mistake. But I do have my butterfly brooch, so the spirit of the butterfly lives on :) And hey, you are cool, so I had to pass this to you ;-)

Thanks and I’m glad that I could pass this award along to you. Had to spread the love :)

Loved giving you the shout out…you’re great! I hope you enjoy all of those great blogs :)

Thanks for the award and your kind words. You have a great blog too…I love stopping by :)

I’m so proud that I gave you your first blog award. I’m sure it will be the first of many :)

You’re welcome. I’m glad that my blog gives you that feeling of welcoming and you know, it does feel like I’m talking to friends…I guess because I am :)Thanks for always supporting me and I’m so glad that you find peace here. At your site, I’m always inspired. Keep up the great work!

I’m glad that I made your day…now that makes my day :) Love your blog and I’m always intrigued to see what you’re up to. It’s like going to fashionista school. Love it! :)

Fitness Diva,
You’re welcome. All of your great fitness advice is a help to me on my quest to get more fit and everything else you write about is just so entertaining. You make fitness fun. Love your blog :)

Mountain Woman,
You are so kind to say that. I feel the same about your blog. I get a sense of calm when I visit you :)

I love it…you are a breath of fresh air. LOL. Yeah, I was astonished too. LOL. I’m so touched that you like the way I write here and that it conveys that feeling to you. You are a great writer, so this praise is so appreciated. I’m glad you like to hang out here. You’re certainly always welcome. And I love your blog too and I was so glad to pass on the award :)

Thank you Dori for thinking of me with this award. I am so glad that you enjoy my writing. I have a great time doing it. Having people support that is very reaffirming.

Also thank you for your support with regard to my comments on Red Pine Mountain's post. I was really taken with what she had to say...she did a great job with it. I am afraid though that I kind of lost my temper a bit with the one person who thinks it's okay to discriminate.

Some folks don't have a clue when it comes to what it's like to walk in someone else's shoes.

Dori said...

I was so glad to give you this award. You write beautifully :)

As for supporting you and what you said, I stand by that. Discrimination is unacceptable no matter who it comes from. I've been on the receiving end of it from time to time and it has caused sadness in my life. So I try to treat people like I want to be treated.

Enjoy your award :)
