Meeting Karen & Thank You

I want to tell you about a lovely woman I met yesterday named Karen. We got connected through Diane who I met back in November. Diane had been a long time blog friend.

Karen and I met at an Argentina Bakery in Irving. We talked over empanadas and coffee. Karen works with many Christian speakers and authors. She has two blogs you can check out here and here. I really enjoyed her company. We got to share life and talked for over four hours. This was the second time I met someone from blogland and I was not disappointed.

I would like to thank two lovely blog friends for three awards. The first two came from Karen W. from Such a Time as Now. Karen was a missionary and home schools her children. She blogs about life and faith. She’s a lovely woman. Pay her a visit when you get a chance. She gave these two awards.


The next one is from Bebe. She has a lovely blog and she also has an antique business that she runs on line. Do stop by and pay her a visit. She is delightful and has elegant taste. Her posts are always interesting and fun with lots of pictures.
This is more about this award: "This blog invests and believes in the Proximity ~ nearness in space, time, and relationships. These blogs are extremely charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give attention to these writers."

Each of these awards ask that I pass them on to fellow bloggers. I always have a hard time with this part because over the years I’ve come to know so many bloggers and I love them all for various reasons. I hope you pay attention to the blog posts that come up on my sidebar and visit some of these excellent bloggers. If I visit you on a regular basis please consider yourself to have a fabulous blog and enjoy your award.
