Well let me start on a very happy note as the New Year begins....
My sweet friend Linda at
Royaltouch has presented me with the special "Proximidade" award. This award is a fine one because it focuses not on the glory and fanfare of blogging, but in the PROXIMITY to one another through this on-line world (kind of a Six Degrees of Separation thing).
"Blogs who receive this award are 'exceedingly charming' say its authors.
This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I am very honored Linda,
and I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers.

Lauren at Button Willow Chronicles

Cathie at Catherine Holman Folk Art

Penny at The Comforts of Home

Cynthia at Cynthia's Cottage Design

My friend at The Freckled Hen

Lila at Indigo Pears

Kim at Happy @ Home

The Girls at Mennonite Girls can Cook

It was SO hard to limit it to only 8 awards! Please visit EVERYONE on my "Inspiring Blogs to Follow"! Everyone on my list has made a difference in my life this past year! And I cherish each one for bringing such joy into my life!
Happy New Year to all my blogger friends!

I'll try to do some of the awarding myself soon...seems my blogging time is so much less since I started back to work!

Congratulations to you for receiving this award & thanks so much for thinking of me in passing it along. I am honored and appreciative!!

I have a few awards and a meme to do a post on and plan to do so soon. Since I am a bit computer illiterate it may take awhile, but I will get 'er done.

Happy New Year and welcome home. You live in a beautiful area.
