Blog of the Year 2012

  Thank-you very much to Kate from~ for nominating my blog for this Beautiful Ward. I have received my ‘first star’.

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpeg 

Thank-you to Ivon from~  for nominating my blog. Thank you both so much!


Please take a moment to visit their blogs as they both are uplifting blogs. Kate and Ivon  are excellent writers and their stories, photos, poetry keep me going back to read more. I am honored that you nominated my blog for this wonderful award as it means so much to me.

Wow! I have learnt so much in a year and am still learning.  It inspires me to continue and work harder in the coming year. Thank-you

I once again would like to thank every single follower, those that leave  comments, anyone that leaves a ‘like’ on any post or just pops in to take a peek. I appreciate you all!

And here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award.

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join the award’s Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience if you choose to

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

I never put them in any type of order and please understand there are so many awesome blogs that deserve this award. I want to thank all my followers, readers and anyone that just takes a peek at my blog. I do apologize if I ever forget to thank anyone as it is not intentional. I appreciate you all. Thank you so much. It will be a year in January that I started my blog and ‘oh boy’ was I  nervous! I have enjoyed learning as I go along and there is still so much I would like to do with my blog. Life can get so busy.

Here are the nominees  I have chosen for the ‘Blog of the Year 2012:

There are so many that are most deserving and ‘worthy’ of this Award. Please forgive me if I have forgotten to put you down. If you do not accept Awards I understand, just know you are appreciated and am thinking about you too.  ~MImi  ~Mary  ~Hanna  ~Eleenie                    ~Kathie   ~Russell  ~P.J. ~Letizia                                                                     ~D.  ~Dr. Bill ~Sally  ~Lisa ~Doug

I will post thumbnails of the Star Awards that I grabbed from Donah at   Thanks so much.

      • YAY!!! I love to see the snow at Christmas time and that’s it. Loved it more years back, ha ha. It is funny how sometimes we hear jokes that others think we live in igloos over here. Nope, not quite that cold and no snow as of yet. :)
