What?!?!? You Mean I Really Won???







I won my very first awards thanks to my blogging buddies over at The Hinesley House and TidBits from Liz. Thank you both very much for this. I can't tell you how long I've waited for an award like this. I've waited my entire life (or at least since June when I started blogging) to be able to stand here on stage and look out to all of you. You like me! You really like me!

Okay, I've awakened from my dream and now back to reality here!
On a serious note, I really enjoy my blogging time and meeting so many new friends. I look forward to reading all of my buddies' blogs. When a friend of mine told me about blogging a little over a year ago, I thought, "How silly that is." A few months later, after reading another friend's blog, I was totally inspired to go ahead and give this blogging world a try. I am really glad I did. Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and for commenting so faithfully.

Now, as with every blog award, there are a few rules that must be followed. These rules are:

1. You may only choose five people/blogs to give the award to...
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog...
3. One has to be a new follower of your blog, or live in another part of the world...

I am happy to present this award to;

Straight from the Heart - I know that April has already won this award, but she has been faithfully following my blog for months now. Even when there's no one else to leave comment, I can always count on April to read daily and comment. Thank you April!
Jessica & Matt - My wonderful friend who introduced me to the blogging world. I thought that I was way too busy to do something like this. I am so glad that you told me about blogging.
Chameleon - Another wonderful friend who posted such a geniune and transparent entry on her blog that actually inspired me to start my blog.
Thinking Out Loud with Jen - And yet another wonderful friend who I have now dragged into the blogging world. I am so glad that you jumped onboard so quickly to have fun with us.

And to my newest followers (Yes, I have two new faithful readers and I want them both to have this award);
Loving each day and Windlebugs - I am so thrilled to have you both as my newest followers. I really enjoy your blog as well. I can see that we will be blogging buddies as long as the blogging world exists.

Thanks again to my friends at The Hinesley House and TidBits from Liz!

Yay!!! I won!!! Right??

Well, I'm glad you joined the world of blogging. I've tried corrupting a lot of people, and not so many people are as enthusiastic as you are! You are a very faithful bloggerista.
