Beautiful Blogger Award~ Thank You!

My first blog nomination! Thank you to CanadianTravelBugs for nominating me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. I started this blog in 2008 but life got in the way so my blogging went into hibernation. I felt the need to began writing again this year and this post will be the 40th  story I have shared on my blog. I am so appreciative of the readers who are following me, reading my content and commenting positively on what they find here. What began as a personal space to record my life’s journey has blossomed into a community of people who care and share interests. I was astounded at first to find strangers reading my blog, but now I understand the blogging world as a way to connect with people who inspire us even though we may never have the opportunity to meet in person. I find inspiration in the words and pictures of people all over the world now.

This award comes with some rules…

1. Thank the person who nominated you and Link to that person~ Thank you agian Canadian Travel Bugs!

2. Post the award on your blog

3. Nominate 7 (or less) blog and link to them

      Thanks. I love your concept of 3 beautiful things a day. Sometimes life can make you forget the little daily pleasures.

    I am pleased as punch—really!—about this, to have been nominated for my blog, No Holds Barred. Happy, too, to see there are not a zillion rules. I am new at this, and some of them have looked rather daunting. Thanks so much. I will look forward, too, to visiting the other folks on your list. 🙂

    I don’t post this here to pressure you to perform. (Whew. These were my first, and it took a good bit of doing to honor them!)

    But I have just nominated you in return for the Sunshine Award. (Details are in my recent posts.)

    Happy awards. Happy blogging. 🙂

    And thank you again so much, Global Anni. I hope my post brings you some sweet visitors here. . . .
