Awards! My first ever!
Wow, I am SO thrilled to have my blog honoured with two awards this week.
Lynda of http://www.foodfunfarm.blogspot.com gave me the very first award I’ve ever received as a blogger, the Uber Amazing Blog Award. Thank you Lynda, you have boosted my confidence so much!
So, what is the Uber Amazing Blog Award?
Uber (synonym to Super) Amazing Blog Award is an award given to blogs which:
· inspire you
· make you smile/ laugh
· impart/share interesting information
· are great reads
· and any other reasons you can think of that makes them Uber amazing!
The rules of this award are:
*Put the award logo on your blog or post
* Nominate at least 5 blogs (can be more) that you consider being Uber Amazing!
* Let them know that they have received this Uber Amazing award by commenting on their blog
* Share the love and link to this post and to the person you received your award from.
I am passing on the Uber Amazing Blog Award to -
http://esthergarvi.com/about-eden-foundation/ Esther hails from Sweden and lives in Niger, a small and very poor country in West Africa. It is not far (as the crow flies!) from the Republic of Guinea where I lived and worked for three years, so I feel a special affinity with Esther. This wonderful young woman is making an amazing difference in her community. To anyone reading my post, do yourself a favour and pop onto her blog to see what I mean. I, for one, follow the blog of this Uber Amazing lady regularly.
Then a homeschooling mum from Florida rewarded me with the Hot Blog Award. See http://a-skip-in-my-step.blogspot.com/. Following the blog of this vibrant young mother inspires me to discard anything synthetic and artificial and opt for all things natural and organic. Just reading her quotes made me realise anew that life is not about the material things we tend to strive for; it's about the natural: a walk along the beach, the touch of a flower, the questing mind of a young child.
Thank you for honouring me with this award.
I wish everyone a happy blogging weekend!
