My Blue Crayon Award, yep I’m starting an AWARD!

This might be impromptu, and after my Friday evening glass of wine….So buckle up Butter Cups, here it comes.

When I saw this image,  I thought of you, my blogger buddies who I enjoy so much.

No questions, no nominations numbers required, just a sincere “nod” to the bloggers who paint your sky.  Oh, and none of that lazy crap of “everyone is nominated who wants to be”.

Take some time, if there is someone out there that has impacted you in the last important period of time you have been blogging….well at least think about giving them a nice shout out, and a  ping back.

Otherwise, happy reading, and move on.  This is your story after all, do with it what you like.

So cheers to you, my blue sky bloggers.

To keep this post short, I chose a few of my favorites.  Any reposting or re-nominating is optional, and at your discretion.

There is no obligation to forward, there is nothing here other than just gratitude, and thanks for your support, and your lovely blogs that fill me with joy, and appreciation.

This is in by no means, a definitive list, or even a top whatever of anything.  This is just a smidgeon of who has inspired, commented, corrected, gave input, provided wonderful moments of enjoyment through sharing their photography, commentary, poetry, songs, muse, self, etc.  Diane, you are so brave, so creative, so vital, so alive, so, so, so outstanding.  Not only do I enjoy reading your blog, I love reading your comments in other blogs.  You are an amazing woman, and I’m so grateful to have found you in this blogosphere.  Beth, I think I found your blog first when I started over 3 years ago.  Not only is your blog so enjoyable for content, photos, quotes, family life, and adventures, it is so genuine, and I look forward to seeing it every day.  I don’t think I could ever not read what you have going on.  Miriam, you have such a wonderful talent and eye in your photography, it is only eclipsed by your lovely writing and how you showcase the love of your family, your country, and what catches your attention.  You are so real, genuine, lovely, and wonderful.  Thank you for sharing your gift with us.  Oh Ms. Lori Higgins.  You are a treasure, a jewel, a common sense, practical, sparkling, diamond of a blogger, friend, commentator, sharer of wisdom.  You rock, and I hope that if we are ever in the same country, we can meet in person.  I pray for you daily, as you are always in my heart.

My friend Rob.  When Stacils first made mention of you over a year ago, I was so drawn to your blog.  Friends without borders is my place.  My home away from home.  I don’t know anyone you haven’t brought in, lifted up, shared your music, your friendship, your encouragement.  You are the Ambassador of my wordpress experience, and I thank you.  Thank you for introducing me to so many great bloggers, and making us all part of your wordpress family.  My sincerest gratitude goes to you.


If you are reading this, and if anyone comes to your mind at all, WordPress or not.  Give them a shout out.  Let the people who make a difference in your life know how much you care about them.


God Bless, and Go Hug up your loved ones.

  1. thank you so much, i am really touched and honored to find myself in such great company. some i know and some i will soon know. so very kind of you ! the people are what make blogging all worthwhile, otherwise we might just as well be writing in a private journal. the human experience is everything.

  2. Thank you, Wendy. Purple is my favorite color, but now I am pretty impressed with blue! Enjoy that wine as I know it is a special treat per doctor’s orders, and have a great weekend.

    • Wine, no wine, it’s all just the same anymore. Wine is nothing, but friends, gratitude, and appreciation is a wide open world.

      My husband and I were cleaning out a room today and purging things we don’t use. I was humming to myself, and he started teasing me.
      I start my new Job on Monday, he thought I was “too happy” to be going back to work.

  3. Oh Wendy, I was so touched and honored to find myself on your list and by your kind words. What a lovely heartfelt idea and you’ve inspired me to pass it on. I was thinking of going award free at some stage but I love the idea of just giving shout outs and showing appreciation. Thank you. ♥
