Awarding Hugs

I was recently nominated for two awards and I am excited! Awards are great feedback that you like what I have been posting on Poetic Parfait.

The awards are encouragement for me to continue my poetic journey and sharing with you all along the way. I love the comments you leave me and cannot thank you enough for all of your kind words, funny lines, and hugs of support.

Awards are like mini-hugs!

Thank-you Gary Schollmeier for the One Lovely Blog Award. Gary has wonderful photos of nature to share at his blog (appropriately titled garyschollmeier), and has done so well at learning the blog culture in such a short time.

One Lovely Blog Award

A lovely award to receive!

What’s that line about “double the fun”? Well, maybe the sentiment applies to blogging awards as well…

Thank-you sugar coated angel (how much do I love this blogger’s name) from the blog sugar coated angelΒ for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! This blog is fun and uplifting – you will notice that as soon as you see the site.

Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I am inspired by the award!

While both awards have rules attached that go along with accepting them, I say:

Not today!

(Maybe I can get away with it because tomorrow is my birthday?)

I like leaving snippets of myself through my posts and within my poetry for you to unravel… Why give you the whole spool today?!

I am going to doll out each award to some bloggers who impress me for different reasons:

One Lovely Blog Award:

Seasons Poetry – poetry, beautiful photos, and awe about places to travel one day

Maxima – artistic creativity in many forms: poetry, photography, thank-you notes, and more

Julie Catherine – a beautiful lady with a beautiful blog of her original poetry and artwork

Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

granbee – a writer, grandmother, and so much more! Fiction, poetry, and wisdom; sometimes all in one post!

Life According To Jane Blog – a witty look at life, with tidbits of advice and a woman named Bertha too

Sending hugs as well to all of my readers. You are all lovely and inspirational in your blogging abilities and your support here!

    Congratulations! You are very much deserving of those awards and I thank you for the nomination! However, I’ll have a problem accepting, because I did it previously, and it was unsuccessful I am really sorry! And again, thank you for the recognition.

    Awards can be considered milestones in life and the career of the writer and you Christy are well deserving of any and all. In case I missed the date by a day Happy Birthday and may the sun set on a happy heart. Know that you are dearly loved and appreciated by all whom follow along. You have so much to offer.

    Many Hugs back
