Awards! I won Awards!

I am honored to receive two awards!

One is the Proximidade Award. Reading the description of the award below makes it even more special. I was given this by Desert Rose Booklogue Thank you so very much Desert Rose. The Desert Rose Booklogue is a great one and you should all visit it.

Now for the explanation of the Proximidade Award which I didn't know what it meant till I read!

"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."

Now I have to pass this along to 8 others...this is a hard choice!

  9. Yvonne, thank you so much. I'm flattered that you thought of me. You totally deserve all the awards you're getting. I need to do some blog housekeeping soon and acknowledge my awards.


Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog! I always love reading comments and getting to know my readers!

After some careful consideration, I've decided to become an award-free blog. Although I appreciate and am honored by each and every award I've received, your comments and friendship are enough award for me. Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness.

Due to way too many spam comments, I disabled the Anonymous User comments. We'll see if this works, otherwise I'll have to go back to word verification.
