A Bunch of Awards

We went camping last weekend, and the oak tree pollen from our campsite has triggered my allergy. I've been sneezing triples and my eyes have been itchy since day 1 of camping. When we got home yesterday, my face was all red and itchy and I couldn't stop sneezing. This morning, I woke up with puffy red eyes and a runny nose. My allergy medicine just doesn't seem to work. It was driving me crazy...and I didn't seem to be in the mood for blogging. But after I checked my blog, I felt a lot better and I got so inspired to make this post. I know you're wondering why. Well, one of my favorite bloggers, Manu of Manu's Menu, posted a comment on my last post saying she has an award for me. When I checked it out, I was surprised to see that she gave me not just one award...she actually passed on eight awards! Isn't that awesome? Once again, I am overwhelmed! It's truly an honor to be chosen from a bunch of wonderful bloggers around the world.

Thanks, my dear Manu for all these awards! I am so grateful! You know how much I love your blog, but because of this, I'm loving it more! :) You really made my day!

I would love to pass on these awards to 15 of my most favorite bloggers. They all show a sense of originality and style which make their blogs so wonderful and really worth reading. Plus, they are all so supportive thus making blogging really worthwhile for me
