I would like to thank the Academy...

But mostly, my friend and fellow blogger, Megan, who has enjoyed my ramblings and given me the following virtual award:

I appreciate her recognizing me, and am glad to know some people like to read what's rumbling about inside my head. I had to think for a while on who I will pass this on to...there are quite a few "fabulous" blogs out there that I read and enjoy.  I love peeking into other people's's virtual voyeurism at its best. 

So...the nominees are:

Kelly at Bachelor Girl.  They broke the mold when they made this chick.  Witty, quick, insightful and full of the good old fashioned Roman spirit...not to mention a very dear friend.

Jorie at reMARKable times.  She is a true writer and her way of stringing words together will reel you in. Don't look unless you want to be addicted to her "keeping it real" wit and style.

Andrea at Always Remember.  A courageous, beautiful and un-dimmable spirit.  Her blog is a chronicle of pain and healing as she learns to move forward as a young widow.  My heart whispers prayers for her and hers as I read.  Her passion and strength will move you.

These are my current top picks of "private people" blogs (meaning, no big names, no fame, no advertising banners...just real people like me sharing a bit of their souls online.) Enjoy your award, ladies! You deserve it.

Now, I'm headed to the after-party. The red carpet is so taxing. 


  1. I would like to thank the Academy (i.e., Katie) for recognizing genius when they, er, SHE sees it!

    (Just kidding!)

    Thanks, my dear! A little encouragement goes a long way for the aspiring writer. And to think - I never would've aspired in the first place if it weren't for you!

    LOVE your blog too, by the way.

    Rock on!


  2. I'm honored - thanks, Katie! And congrats on yours!
