You have made my day, week, month and year! As a blogger, we never know if or who is reading us and if it makes any difference at all – this award and recognition is a great way to encourage all us bloggers, allow us some bragging rights and make us pretty darn excited about our blogging! Thanks again so much for reading, categorising, promoting, and encouraging all of us bloggers! You are amazing! Someday I’ll thank you in person and buy you a beverage!
