A special award from a special person and a big thank you!



I received this lovely award from my dear friend Marty at A Stroll Through Life. I first met Marty on RMS and then we re-connected at MicasaStyle. We both started blogs after being persuaded by our mutual buddy Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict. I kept hearing that blogging buddies can be some of your best friends, even though you've never met in person. That has turned out to be so true! I feel like I've known Marty and Debbie for years. They are so much fun and so supportive! If you haven't met Marty yet, make sure that you visit her beautiful blog at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ You will be amazed at her gardens, her talent at decorating and sewing and her fantastic bargain hunting skills!

This lovely award is the "Best Blog Daily Thinker" award. What an honor to receive this, especially coming from Marty. The rules are to post it on your blog and pass it on to 10 other deserving bloggers. I'll be honest, I think that everyone out there deserves this award. Every blog I read has given me new ideas, made me think, made me giggle or just brightened my day. So I'm going to cop out here and just say that if you are reading this, please accept the award! Many of you have already received it, so consider yourself a double award winner!

I really do want to thank everyone who has read and commented on my blog. I started this several months ago with MUCH trepidation. I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and the support and enthusiasm of everyone has really been amazing. I have found so many wonderful friends here. It's also been a big help in adjusting to the world of the "emptynester". It's so nice to have others to bounce ideas off of , or just to be able to "vent"! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart!

I'm VERY glad that you decided to blog. I started with some trepidation myself but don't regret a minute. If nothing else comes of it, my kids (and hopefully grandkids) will have a little mini-history/stream of consciousness of my life to remember me by.

Hi Kathy! Congrats on that award girl! Isn't it the truth that you meet sooo many great friends here in blogville? I've never met a nicer more supportive group of women/men. Blogging seems to bring out the best people *winks* I still don't really know what I'm doing but it sure is a blast! Thanks for stopping by girlfriend! I always love hearing from you! Vanna

Hi Kathy,
I just wanted to let you know that I deleted my congratulatory post to you because I had listed my Micasa identity on here and I don't want it found. I think you know who....so glad you're here and that you got an award! I love the photo at the top of your blog page....so serene! I wish I was there on that beach! Snow up to our eyeballs again!
