If I were any sprightlier, I would have done triple somersaults on a balance beam. Or a victory dance, complete with costumes and all. You see, Rowena had this chicklet waiting for me on her site, and it really, really thrills me no end.
I feel so much like Manny Pacquiao really, except I'm not all beat up and bruised. When I started blogging in April, I thought that I would just be keeping an online journal of sorts. It never occured to me that I would be read, or that I would be part of a friendly, if opinionated, community. It never even occured to me that I would spend the better part of my online time hopping from one blog to the next, and enjoying kindred bloggers' stories.
So thank you, thank you, Sweet Rowena, for this my first award. And to spread the cheer, I am passing on the chicklet to these lovely ladies whose blogs I really, truly love:
Hop over to their blogs and you'll see why!
