I don't mind at all, in fact, I'm honored to be mentioned on your wonderful blog. And, I still think that every day, that blogging is one of the best things in my life.

I also agree that those 3 bloggers that you mentioned are among some of the best writers in the blogging world (or our corner of it).

Ahhhh, that's me that is!
Thank you so much, what a wonderful way to wake up. I don't need my super dooper max strength coffee to put a spring in my step today after all. The best bit about the post for me was seeing you with your daughter. Hopefully I will one day have pictures like that to show you Ali darling.
Have a wonderful day and long may you blog.

Cherry xx

What a lovely post, and beautiful picture of you two! You are most deserving of your award, also! I don't miss even one of your posts!



Congrats on your nomination! I agree with everything you said. Blogging is really a great thing and has changed my life for the better as well. It is amazing to think what modern day technology brings us. We would never all know each other or have these opportunities to interact if it wasn't for the internet! Have a great weekend.

Congratulations on your award Allie.


What a cute picture of the two of you! I totally agree about the has really been a wonderful experience. It has done what I hoped: sparked my creativity and writing. But it has gone farther in that I didn't realize the connections I would make with other creative women. Blog on!
