Thank You!

June 23, 2012

I am humbled by and grateful for my nomination for two awards, especially since the nominations came from bloggers I enjoy and respect. If you’ve been around the blog world a little while, you know nominations come with requirements.  So its time for me to take care of business before diving into the GI Bill.

Reader Appreciation Award

The Reader Appreciation Award comes from Notsofancynancy .Her blog follows her father’s experiences during World War II through letters (many touching “love letters”) to his wife.  A beautiful and interesting read.

The One Lovely Blog is a nomination by J. G. Burdette whose blog is a wealth of historical and nautical information, and whose blog is one of the most technically enviable I’ve read.

Reader’s Appreciation Award: How It Works:

  1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog.
  2. Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to.
  3. Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.
  4. Pay the love forward: Provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.
  5. Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you.

  5. Favorite pattern? I love the predictable way my family celebrates birthdays and Christmas.  There’s joy in recognizing the good stuff of life.
  6. Do you prefer getting or giving presents? Giving, because its so much more rewarding when you get it right.
