I've been a little out of it since going back to work, and failed to realize that after my sweet friends Andrades Girl and Barbie nominated me for the friends award I should both thank them and keep the whole thing moving! I do apologize for the tunnel vision, and I thank you both, it's very gratifying to receive such recognition.
Here is the award
“These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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.”
The Rules to accepting this award: “Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”
This is really tough for me, partly because I believe many of my cherished bloggers have already received this award, and partly because everyone I read is special to me, each blog adds a dimension to me. I'm torn between biting the bullet and naming 8 people, even if they've already gotten the award, and taking the path M:e chose, that of just thanking everyone and electing to not name additional people. I really agree with her approach on so many levels! But as long as I don't have to find 8 people who have not gotten the award already, I'll list here my favorite blogs. That's not to say I only have 8 favs, just that the rules only allow for 8.
So, first I have to mention Constance at My Dabble in the Middle End, who was the first person I found, and through whom I stumbled onto most everyone else I've become acquainted with.
Princess at Submissive Sparks.
Doubleknot at doubleknots ruminations.
M:e at Aspects of Me.
Swan at The Heron Clan.
Ronnie at Heart and Soul.
Chloe at She Obeys.
Cookie at The Cookie Jar.
Of course Barbie and Andrades Girl would be on this list too if they hadn't nominated me...
And there are more I'd include too - you could actually check out my list of favorite blogs, lol.
Anyway, this is a very nice gesture, it's always nice for us to let others know we think well of them, I hope you all knew that I thought the world of you already. I appreciate each of you for the generosity of spirit you exhibit by sharing yourselves so creatively and thoughtfully.
