A Major Award! (for all you Christmas Story fans)



My dear friend Vanna at Delusions of Grandeur has presented me with the special "Proximidade" award. This award is really special to me, because it focuses on the friendships that blossom here in blogland. "Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors.This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award." Thank you Vanna for thinking of me with this award. I would like to pass it on to the following 8 bloggers:

1 Debbie at Confessions of a Plate Addict

2 Barb at GritsandGlamour

3 Michelle at Beautiful Orchids

4 Nikki at Blah, Blah, Blah Blog

5 Lynette at Lynette's L.A.M. Blog

6 Tar at Confessions of a 40-something Mama Queen

7 Laurie at Bargain Hunting

8 Belle at Life of a Southern Belle


Please stop by and say hello! They all have great blogs, but more importantly are all warm, funny "smart cookies" as my grandmother used to say!

Thank you so much...and it is so true. I never imagined when I started this that I would establish long distance relationships with so many wonderful people. I'm committed next week to passing along awards and tags and will joyfully share the love with eight others ASAP!
