I Feel The LOVE :)

This past week has been wonderfully hectic. Reverie Media and I had an amazing City of Glass celebration week, and I am very grateful and happy for all of those fellow bloggers that joined in and participated, Thank you!

Along with the great responses I also recieved some very amazing awards. I am sorry that it took me a bit to post them and to aknowledge those that nominated me. I am extremely happy and grateful for these nominations and will now share them with you.

Beautiful Heart Award
(given by the wonderful J. Kaye)

This award also goes to all of the bloggers who put their hearts, mind and soul into their blogs and give us a glimpse into their worlds. They are positive and may not realize it, but are leading by example. They inspire with their words, educate and inform. They entertain and uplift with their humor. They are welcoming, helpful and friendly and no one is a stranger, whether you've commented once or a million times. They are ever so wise and giving. Most of all, they have Beautiful Hearts.There are no rules for this award which means you don't have to bestow it on 3, 5, 7,
or 10 people. If you want to pass it on, it is up to you.

The SisterHood Award
(Given by Iryana at the Garden of Books,Pocket Pixie at Maze of Books and Yan at Books by Their Cover Blog)

The Rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate up to 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award

The Zombie Chicken Award
(Given by Karin, Vania and Pocket Pixie)

The blogger who receives this award believes in the Tao of the zombie chicken - excellence, grace and persistence in all situations, even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse. These amazing bloggers regularly produce content so remarkable that their readers would brave a raving pack of zombie chickens just to be able to read their words. As a recipient of this world-renowned award, you now have the task of passing it on to at least 5 other worthy bloggers. Do not risk the wrath of the zombie chickens by choosing unwisely or not choosing at all …

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
