In the last month of 2012 I received several awards from fellow bloggers. And even though it is a lot of work accepting them, I couldn’t be more happy about it. To receive such appreciation from people who have amazing blogs themselves is simply making me happy!! So to them and all other readers and followers of my blog I just want to say THANK YOU!

Blog of the year 2012 Award

Cathie of The Cathie Barash Blog, AllThingsBoy Blog and Ocean Bounds Adventures have given me another star! Thank you so so much for this. Unfortunately Ocean Bounds Adventures seems to have deleted the blog, so no link to that… However, do take the time to visit the other 2 blogs as they deserve it! As I have posted about this award before you can click here to see the rules and especially the FB page that was created. There you can find many other wonderful blogs. As we are already in 2013 I won’t pass it forward anymore…
