Long Overdue...

My very, very, VERY talented friend Diane is extremely popular. Yes she is.:) And that is not surprising. Her blog following is considerable and I have indeed enjoyed seeing it grow. She keeps receiving these wonderful awards from other talented writers and she deserves them all. However, she seems to think I do to, as she passes them on to me and I feel so very honoured by this.

Long overdue, it is now my turn to give out these awards to others, who, as I said before, deserve them more than I ever will and I hope they will kindly accept them. I hope in the future to be able to give these to new friends and talented writers, whose blogs I am to stumble upon or who will with interest visit mine.


I will start with the latest award I received called “Proximidade Award”. It is suppose to be given to people who have become your blog friends. Diane explains it very well here.


Well, without question, I have to award the first award back to Diane.;) I wish we would not live so far apart as we have so much in common and I would love to spend some time with her in real life.

Second, I will give this award to Holly, even though she already has one, I have noticed. However, she is really my pal and if we ever met in reality, I know we would get along so well. By my standards, she is leading the life of my dreams.

I would also like to give this award to Hilary. It is funny how quickly one can feel to know someone well. I feel she is so genuine and I have a longing wish to speak to her in person. I would love to accompany her on those long, tranquil walks when she takes all those beautiful photographs.

Now to the “Superior Scribbler Award”.

Again, this one is going back to Diane, no doubt. I do not even have to even explain why.

I would also like to give this prominent award to Diane’s friend Mel, who’s wonderful blog I so enjoy reading. It is humours, but with a serious undertone, and this combination makes it very genuine. You deserve this one Mel.
Remember to add your name to the list.:)

Please feel free to pass these awards onto others.;)
Thank you again Diane.

You have MORE THAN deserved every award I've passed on to you. And I thank you so much for sending them back!! XO

Hilary said...

Aww thanks so, so much. I'm touched (and not only in the head). ;)

Truly your words ring very true for me too. When I read what you write either on your blog or in comments on mine, I often feel that with a click of the mouse, there is also a click of the minds.

Thanks very much. I'll wear it on my sidebar with pride.

Diane, you are the best.:)

Hilary, I am so happy to hear that you feel the connection too; your kind comments are always so articulate and moving. You do me great honor by accepting this award.

Donna, thank you so much, that was so very kind of you.:)

Mlh, I am thrilled that you stopped by. I thoroughly enjoyed your site. Thank you for you nice comment.:)

Mel said...

Thank you so much! I really, really appreciate it! I'm doing a little happy dance at my desk in celebration(with the added effect that maybe I'll work off some of the Tootsie Rolls I've been eating). I agree with you so much about Hilary's photographs. They are so beautiful!

Diane said...

I tagged you for a cool kind of meme...

Holly said...

You are so kind to me!! I would love to accept this award again. I agree that we would get along so well, and I only hope that some day we do have the chance to connect. I am laughing that you think I am leading the life of your dreams because it is all chaos, noise, and running around. But, thank you for making me step back for a moment and see it through somebody else's eyes. I would love to come and live in your beautiful home on a hill, and snuggle under blankets in front of your fireplace. To smell your candles and read your books. Your life too sounds dreamy.

Mel, you know how much I love your site, you so deserve it.:) I wish I could have seen that dance.;)

Holly, I am happy you will accept the award.:) Your life sounds lovely to me, because it is as it should be; all the running and chaos and noise are something that is so right, at least to me.;))
I hope one day to be able to show you my house on a hill, that would be lovely.:)
