Friends Award

Funny, inspirational, and all around WONDERFUL guy, Ron, from VENT received a friends award from his friend, Akelamalu @ Everything and Nothing and then spread the love to his friends. Congrats RON!!! My friend Leesa from News From France, awarded me. I was amazed and it really made my day. I would really love to give this award to everyone, who reads my blog or who is linked to me.
I had a hard time choosing, sorry!

This is the thinking behind this particular award:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in 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 text into the body of their award.

So... DRUMROLL PLEASE.... in no particular order.... here are the 8 I pick!!

Sally in Norfolk
Chez Loulou
Bleeding Espresso
Creative Structures
Lucillian Delights
The Inspired Room
My Melange
