Who Wouldn't Love an Award?!

Guess what? The lovely Valerie over at It's a Wonderful Life has passed on this beautiful butterfly award to me!

Isn't it pretty? Thanks Valerie!

Here are the steps:

A. Put the logo on your blog.
B. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
C. Nominate ten other blogs, add links to those blogs, and leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

So, here are a few blogs that I've been enjoying lately! Yes, there are only seven. That should be enough reading for you for today (because I really think you should go read them ALL).
AND, since I started writing this post, the wonderful Mimi of Screaming Mimi awarded me with this award:So, here's what it's for...

"This blog invests and believes 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 cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I have to admit that one of my favorite parts of this award is that the original giver has identified themselves as CLEVER within the text of their explanation. It just made me laugh!

I like this award because it's one of the things I like most about blogging - meeting new people and making friends. So, here are some ladies who are total winners (and awesome bloggy friends) in my world...

Kori at See Kori Rant

Auds at Barking Mad

Maria at Immoral Matriarch

Shana at Utterances

Maggie at Maggie's Mind

Dawn at Must Love Tots

I decided to only pass this along to six ladies, since I'm still making friends! They inspire me, make me feel less alone, and make me smile.
