Award Catch-up

So over the last few weeks (or more) I’ve been presented with several awards from JenBianca, and the lovely twins Autumn & Gabby!  Some I recently received from others and one that’s new to me.  Thank you all very much for thinking of me, it is truly an honor! 🙂

Let’s go backwards, shall we?


From Jen C Hay, I have been honored for a second time with the 7×7 Link Award.  As this one is quite in depth and I did this only recently, I’m going to cheat and simply point you back to my original acceptance.


Bianca has been so kind to present me with both the One Lovely Blog Award and the Candle Lighter Award.  I have also been fortunate to have received these recently and am going to cheat a bit here too and point you to my original posts by the links above.


From our favorite twins, I have received the ABC Award, which is one I have not received before.

(I know…..2 pictures?  It seems Jen was also given this award from another fellow blogger and I couldn’t choose which picture I liked best, so I decided to use them both 🙂 )

Since this one is new to me, let’s see what I can do about fullfilling the requirements.

This one is simple – to ‘accept’ the award you just add the ABC Award logo to your blog –and then you share something about yourself with your readers and then pass the award on to other worthy bloggers – there’s no limit to how few – or how many – other bloggers you can send this to.

To share something about yourself – you will need to go through the alphabet and choose a word or phrase for each letter and use that to describe yourself – it might be something about you, something you like, or a place or thing you dream about. And that’s all – no long descriptions or detail – just create a new post, add your shiny new blog award badge and alphabet words and let your readers enjoy finding out a little more about you.

A Adventurous B Brave C Cautious
D Defiant E Excitable F Fun-loving
G Geek H Honest I Impatient
J Jaded 🙂 K Kind-hearted L Loner
M Mom N Nosy O Ornery
P Poetic 😛 Q Quizzical R Rebellious
S Sarcastic T Too Trusting U Unruly
V Vacation on the beach W Workaholic X X-tremely cool 🙂
Y Young at heart Z Zombie Fan!

As for the nominations, this is the hard part as I’ve passed so many awards on to my fellow bloggers recently, but here goes:




Genuine Blogger Award

Thank you so much Autumn & Gabby!  They have once again bestowed upon me a lovely award.

Now this one comes with no rules attached, so for those I’m passing this on to don’t feel obligated to do anything with it.  However, rules or not, I enjoy letting my fellow bloggers know how much I enjoy their blogs.  And really everyone here on WordPress that I’ve run across are all so genuine that it’s hard to not do a neverending list of who to share this with.  But as that list would likely be too long for anyone to make it through, I will keep it shortened to a few of my favorites.

So without further ado, I bestow this upon the following:






One Lovely Blog Award

Gabby and Autumn have been generous yet again and have bestowed upon me this lovely award.  Thank you so much ladies!  If you have not already done so, I do encourage you all to check out their blog, it truly is lovely and always fun.

There apparently are no real rules for this award and there are no requirements for how many nominations should be spread.

So I have chosen the following blogs to pass this on to, they are all lovely and I do encourage you all to visit them if you haven’t already.






Candle Lighter Award

Autumn & Gabby have honored me several times in the last week and this is one I truly could not ignore.  I am so touched that they felt I deserved this particular award.  It has been with the support of my faithful followers that I find the strength each day to survive and continue dreaming that I will reach the light at the end of the tunnel.  All of you have truly been an inspiration for me to grow once again.

This award belongs to those who believe, who always Survive the day and those who never stop Dreaming, for those who cannot quit, for those who keep trying and if you are in that category you are Entitled to this Award.

I will be sparing in my nominations for this, but there are many more who I know also deserve it.

Vampire Weather – Wonderful words that always resonate with me and show a true inner strength

Bloom Anyway – She has come through a lot and her strength to keep pushing on inspires me every day

Searching for the Light – Another inspiring individual that I am so glad I found, I can relate to so many of her posts

Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you so much to Autumn and Gabby and Unwrittentruth for such a wonderful recognition. 

And the rules for the Versatile Blogger Award are:

1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers.
2. Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
3. Share 7 random things about yourself.
4. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award pic on your blog post.

7 things about me:

1.  I love dogs! All dogs but especially my own 3 little sweethearts.  They are the only ones in my life who love me unconditionally and never judge and they are always so excited every time I get home 🙂

2.  I love plain vanilla ice cream – it always reminds me that simple things can good

3.  Despite what you may think from a lot of my posts, deep down I am still a bit of a hopeless romantic 😉

4.  Horror movies are my favorite!

5.  I only cry at sappy movies if I’m by myself.

6.  I’m not a morning person and hate having to talk to anyone until I’ve been awake at least half an hour or more 🙂

7.  I always have to have the TV or radio on because noise in the background makes me feel less alone.

Now to pass on the good karma.  Here are some of the blogs I feel are deserving of this recognition 🙂
















The Liebster Blog Award

Huge hugs to Heart of Bella and The Tale of My Heart for this lovely nomination!  Considering I never actually expected anyone to read my blog, I am pleasantly surprised to know that someone out there felt I deserved this lovely award. 🙂

Leibster is German & means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean ‘favorite’ & the idea of the Leibster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers and I decided that I should definitely write a post about it & pass the award on to 5 or more bloggers.

The Rules are:

  1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  2. Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Post the award on your blog.
  4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogosphere – other bloggers.
  5. And, best of all – have fun and spread the karma

So without further adieu, here are my 5 picks!
