The little gift that could

This is a very quick post, because I’m feeling really bad about all the blogs I haven’t visited and need to – getting the Very Inspiring Blogger award has been firstly, a lovely and unexpected surprise, but then also a gift that keeps giving – a couple of people have told me that being nominated has really inspired them, and that has been really encouraging for me to be used to encourage other people! And besides all that, I’ve had people say such lovely and touching things about me and my blog. So, wow, I’m pretty blown away! Thank all you lovely people, and especially Inese who nominated me πŸ™‚

And to the people I haven’t replied to or whose blogs I haven’t visited (yet), I’m a-comin’!! We’re down a laptop at home, oh the first world tragedy of it! But it is slowing this hover craft πŸ˜‰


Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Inese from inesemjphotography has been kind enough to nominate me for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

veryinspiring_bloggerawardIt’s my very first award, thank you Inese πŸ™‚

Inese lives in Ireland, and if that’s not enough to draw you over to her blog by itself, she takes stunning pictures of hauntingly beautiful Ireland and elsewhere (and she’s a lovely lady, you can tell).

And now I need to choose 15 out of all the great blogs out there to nominate for the same award. If my nominees choose not to accept, I hope you will just take it as a compliment πŸ™‚

  1. The Chrone Chronicler
  2. Days and Months
  3. Tabitha’s Gluten-Free Dishes
  4. The Clear Parent
  5. Deborah Makarios
  6. Willy Nilly To and Fro
  7. Life’s Journey’s Unfolding
  8. At My Table
  9. Nerd in the Brain
  10. Menomama3
  11. Quarter Acre Lifestyle
  12. Leanne Cole Photography
  13. Petals Unfolding
  14. Nurse’s Links to Resources
  15. Love Support Educate Advocate Accept

I enjoy and appreciate each and every one of these blogs and if I had time I’d say why for each, but I find each of them inspiring in their own unique flavours, and I definitely recommend visiting them.

Accepting the nomination there are two rules:

1)Β The nominee shall display the Very Inspiring Blogger AwardΒ logo on her/his blog, and link to the blog they got nominated from.

2)Β The nominee shall nominate fifteen (15) bloggers she/he admires, by linking to their blogs and informing them about it.

Thanks again, Inese πŸ™‚
