Tag Archives: Awards

I’ve been fortunate enough to be nominated for three awards this week. It’s encouraging to get an award because it means someone likes my blog and it allows me to share some of the blogs I follow. I’m combining my responses. I will post each separately, and for those I nominate please remember, there is no obligation to accept or forward the awards to other bloggers.

(1)  Thank you to slepsnor of Legends of Windemere for nominating me for The Liebster Award.
