Firstly, I want to say a HUGE thank you to Erich Michaels for nominating me for this award!! 

You can find his blog here: 

(Definately spare a second to check it out! His writing is wonderful here’s one of his poems called Frost Shadows:

The sun’s rays have crested the horizon

My love dances in dew laden grass

I stand in the umbrage of the weeping willow

My breath a billowing cloud

My feet shuffle in the frost shadow

where the sun may never shine

(I told you he was good! – what are you still doing here!? Go check out his blog! Get gone!)

Also a quick thanks to the creator of the award and if you wanna read a bit more about it then check out this link:

So what does this award mean to me? 
Well! A hell of a lot! I’ve only been blogging for a couple of weeks and, frankly, the whole idea scared me a little!

But everyone has been so welcoming and I’ve literally been drawn into this incredible, crazy blogosphere possibly to the point of blog addiction…oops! And I’ve chatted with so many cool, interesting people who are all into the same things as me! It’s like a community and it’s something I absolutely didn’t expect to find from blogging! I look forward to checking my notifications while I’m on break at work and have little moments of inspiration about my next blog posts throughout the day!

But enough rambling! Get on to the nominations I hear you cry! Please people I know you’re excited but don’t start a riot on behalf of an award (think of the children!)

So I want to give this award to some of the people who have supported me/followed my blog/commented on or liked my posts/ replied to my rambles and generally been there in these early days and hopefully (fingers and toes crossed – or not toes because that’s kinda gross) will stick with me for a long and prosperous blife (blogging life)

  2. Haha I’ve often wondered if I’m maybe slightly addicted to blogging and reading blogs……
    Also, I didn’t know “blife” was a word. Did you make that one up? I like it

    Yaaay and I didn’t scare anyone this time….at least I don’t think so? 🙂 Thanks so much for the nomination Caroline – am new at this too and feel the same way! It’s been amazing and incredibly confidence building with regards to getting braver about putting another piece of my mind out there! Thanks again and congratulations to you on receiving the same honor 🙂
