When Life Gives You Lemons…

January 17, 2009

You make Real Life Lemonade!

Thanks to Nico and Nicopolitan for bestowing upon me this beautiful little award. He didn’t say too much about the rules, but I found them with Angela at Angelaboration, so I’m copying them from her.

1. Thank the person who was so thoughtful for giving you this award by linking their blog to this post.
2. Put the logo on your blog or post.
3. Nominate 10 blogs which show great attitude/gratitude.
4. Link your nominees to your post.
5. Comment them to tell them about the award they’ve won.

Pretty simple.

Except not, because I read MANY blogs but really only a few very faithfully, and quite a few of those were already nominated by Nico and Angela. There might be a repeat or two in here. I guess there’s no rule that says you can’t get the award twice.

Anyway, here’s my list.

BigSkyGirl at A Dream is Like a River
A Classy Girl indeed from Classy in Philadelphia
Rachel from Confessions of a Jersey Girl
Hazel from Behind These Hazel Eyes
Wishcake at
Curly Girl at Curly Girl
Nicole at More is Better
Miss Marie at Musings from Wonderland
Miss Musical at Actress in the City
Elysa at GenPink

Every single one of these ladies at some point or another has been an inspiration to me in one way or another. Some I’ve been reading forever, some I’ve been reading since the beginning of the month, and one or two of these ladies might not even know I’m reading at all until I stop by to tell them they’ve won. It doesn’t matter, because they’ve all shown spunk, insight, and the ability to make lemonade from lemons for themselves, and have endeavored to help others do the same through their blogs and through their lives.

Congrats ladies! Now, pass it on!
