Many Thanks to You!

During the first half of 2012 I was nominated for a variety of blog awards.  Somehow, I managed to keep up with the posts that can accompany the nominations.

Well, in the last half of 2012 I have to admit I didn’t keep up as well as I would have liked!

When I began this post I searched through my comments and I was stunned, and very humbled to see all the awards!

So, as 2012 closes, I’d like to take a moment to say thanks to the bloggers who nominated me and took a moment to recognize me in one of their posts.

Most of these awards ask you to answer questions to claim the award.

I’m gong to bend those rules a bit, as there would be a very long list of questions.


just in case you think this that what I’m about to do is an original idea,

it isn’t.

I had been thinking about this for some time, then fellow blogger


who I also consider to be a friend, did what I’m about to do.

I’m happy to give her the credit, and also my thanks for the inspiration!

I’m simply going to say


and present you with an award of my own creation, called

My Thanks to You!

To today’s recipients,

If  you’d like to thank another blogger and pass this badge forward to others please feel free to do so.  I  simply ask that you link back to my site so others will know where the badge originated, and let them know they’ve received your thanks.

That’s it!

If you don’t wish to  pass this along, no worries!


To all who are reading this post,

Please, please, please be sure to click on the links for these diverse and very talented bloggers!

Here we go – I hope I covered them all!

My Thanks to…

Gemma, who writes First and Fabulous for “The No Strings Attached Gratitude Award!”

This is her very own No Strings Attached Gratitude Award! that inspired this post.


Crazy Train to Tinky Town for the Lovely Blog Award!


Smile Scavenger for the Liebster Blog Award – to inspire and be inspired!


scrapydo for the REALITY Blog Award!


Patty who writes Thoughts from an American Woman for the Commentator Award!

taniamend who writes simplycaptured 9 for the Super Sweet Blogger Award!


ioanna aggelidaki who writes life portOfolio for the Very Inspiring Blog Award!


Biltrix for two awards,

the Food for Thought Award!



Finally, as the year is coming to a close, I’ve decided to write a post based on one of these awards.

I’m really looking forward to that as I believe it sets a good context for me to end one year and start the next.

Until next time, Happy Blogging everyone!


I've always enjoyed writing and finally decided it was time to blog! As part of my profession I write every day, but I'm now trying to take the time to write creatively. My family and friends have been very encouraging as there is little that is written down in the way of a family chronicle. This is a favorite topic of mine! In addition to family history, I write about life, family, friends and faith. My husband is a full-time parent to our special needs daughter. I’ve explored this topic, too. I also enjoy music, crocheting, reading and relaxing with my family. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer!
