Awards! Awards! And a BIG Thank you from me!

As a new blogger I feel a wonderful sense of belonging. From the start people in this community have been so friendly & helpful! I've met so many people from all over the world and I've made so many new friends. We all share a common love - the love of reading! And as we sit down and write our blogs, we all support each other in a way that makes me very happy to be part of it all! And part of being a blogger is giving and receiving some great awards! Here are some of the great awards I've recently received and the people who gave them to me! I'm playing a little catch up here, but I wanted to make sure I sent out my appreciation! And I do appreciate being nominated! Thank you so much!! This is also the first of 2 award posts, so I'm going to be sending out MORE appreciation soon!

Blogs that receive the Let’s Be Friends Award are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and befriends. They are not interested in 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.

And here are my nominee's....

Congratulations and thank you, your comment and award was a nice antidote to mid winter blues which seem to be sapping motivation at the moment. I just want to add my agreement with others in saying what a great blog you have created.
