Blog Love Part 1

My next three posts will be about blog love. LOVE, LOVE sappy LOVE...

Back in 1984 I was given this blog award. Just kidding, although it might as well been that far back, considering how long it has taken me to post about it. It was my very first ever blog award. I couldn't have been more excited and flattered. It was given to me by a long time blogger friend Melissa author of Hello, Melissa! and a fairly new blog Silk Hope Home School Adventure. I thanked her in comments and email but never got around to passing on the love. Better late than never. Of course this will also relieve some of guilt I have been carrying around with me for over a year.

Thank you Melissa for this Schmooze Award. The Schmooze award is for bloggers who...“effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.”

I would like to pass this award on to the following blogger friends.

Suzy at Where Hot Comes to Die, a regular reader of mine since the beginning and someone I consider a real life friend too. Her sense of humor is unmatched and I enjoy reading about her fun life adventures. You can find the beginnings of her debut memoir over at Scrivel.

MerCat at More MereCatherine a wonderful mother of twins who has a very engaging way of writing and sense of humor. I don't know how she comes up with the time to write, but I admire her for it.

Karen Meg at A Day in the Life, also a wonderful mother of two, I have been reading since almost the beginning of my blog time. She has great taste in music and is also very fashionable.

Alissa at Life's Little Adventures, a fun mom and very talented photographer. I look forward to her stories about her boys and seeing her beautiful photos. She is having a giveaway right now to celebrate her 1000Th post, go now!

Thanks QT. Doesn't this award come with a million dollars?

Aw, congrats on the award, and thanks so much for thinking about me. It's amazing how quickly time flies when you're blogging isn't it? I'm honoured that you still keep coming back to my tiny corner of the blogosphere!
