Anyway, as if I don't gush enough about the awesome Kelly at Kellyansapansa, I'm about to continue the "love-fest," as she is the gracious bestower of this tremendous Blogie Award to me! I'm actually a little relieved to see that Kelly still thinks I'm cool, because I've been singing her praises so much lately, I was a little worried she'd be issuing me restraining orders, not awards! Maybe because she feels she's at a safe enough distance (Australia!!), she can take the chance on this potential stalker! (Really, Kelly, I promise I'm not!)
But in all sincerity, thanks so very much, Kelly, not only for the award, but for all of your tremendous support and encouragement. I'm so glad I found you and your terrific, pretty blog!
Speaking of terrific blogs, now I get to tag three more that I love! Man, this is a tough call. I've spent the last week or so vigorously perusing the blogosphere, and I'm so amazed with the amount of beautiful, well-written sites out there! I'm following so many of you now, not only because I love reading what you have to say, but also because I'm learning so very much from you! You all, to use my favorite word, ROCK!! Ok, I've decided to go with these, and I'll explain why:
The Dogged Pursuit of Happiness: Like Kelly did for me, I'm tagging this blog for the second time, but I REALLY love it. Stasha is a brilliant (literally, she has a genius IQ!), thoughtful writer and I just can't get enough of her beautiful site. She had the audacity in her lastest post to apologize to her readers for not writing more often. Truth be told, she really doesn't need to write more than she does! Just ONE of her posts will "fill you up" for the week! Promise!
Using 100 Words When 10 Would Suffice: Dana is, literally, the answer to a prayer. She is the wife of my husband's childhood friend. I've never met her, and she owed me NOTHING, but she was the very first of my non-relative-nor-supportive-friend-base to offer me tremendous encouragement on my writing. As you know, beginning a blog can be terrifying, and her amazing emails to me made me want to keep trying. For that alone, I would recommend ANYTHING of hers, but the truth is, her blog is FANTASTIC! She's on an incredible, cathartic journey, and she describes it so well that you immediately want to become her cheerleader (and follower!).
Music Oasis: OK, full disclosure, this is my brother-in-law's brand new blog! He is a crazy genius when it comes to all things music (especially that of the 70's an 80's), and someone finally convinced him to write it all down in a blog and share it with the rest of us! I think you'll really enjoy it! By the way, he also does a FANTASTIC impersonation of my crabby, Irish Dad!
Ok, enough of that! Think I'll go put on a formal gown, don some fancy, rhinestoney jewelry and find someplace that's got a red carpet which I can stroll down!!
Thanks for Reading!!
