Thank you Bobbie, and now it's my turn to pass this along to some of my worthy bloglinks. I just wish I could choose more than seven!
Tracey over at Skylark Meditations:
From Illinois, Tracey's been an online friend of mine for a looong time, and we share the same wicked, evil sense of humour and a love of Def Leppard. So what if she goes for the lead singer and I drool over the bass player? Tracey's blog is all about sitting together over a cup of coffee and sharing, about life, her Monsterkiddo, and her big heart shines through there and everywhere she leaves comments. Tracers, you give the best cyber hugs I know, and I love you to pieces!
Vince at Rocker Guy Ramblings:
The Rocker Guy from "Noo Yawk" is just that, he ROCKS! A Christian guitar playing/singing rocker with a band, he not only lives with a hawt lady ("The Wife") who keeps him in line, he's also going to be a big shot IT boss one of these days on the job, mark my words! I forgive him for not being a particular fan of Def Leppard, but he's a HUGE Queen fan so it's all good. His blog is all about family life, fun and not so fun stuff on the job, spiritual life and his love for his wife and 2 boys. Rocker Guy, you're almost up there with my favourite bass player. I AM going to get to see you play in person one day!
Orion at Orion Hood:
Orion is a hoot!! He's in Oregon and his blog is a nice mix of laughter, politics, laughter, world news, army life, life at the fire department and did I mention laughter? He's a great guy with a warm heart and is always ready to help people in need. (this is the same man who spent days helping me finally get this blog whipped back into shape when Blogger screwed it up by changing to the new Blogger) Talk about your good looking firemen, maybe one day we can talk him into getting a calendar together for the ladies before he deploys to Iraq or regions thereabouts. Orion, I have to meet you someday and give you a bear hug!
Jay (Jamie) at Kill The Goat:
Jay is a fellow Canadian from Ontario, and if you like reading someone who has more than excellent writing skills, this blog's for you. I simply adore this lady. She's straightforward, saucy, naughty, funny, and boy does she tug at your heartstrings when she talks about the more serious side of life. This young lass (just like funny Lois) should be highly paid professional writers, and that ain't no guff. Jay honey, you've got a piece of my heart.
Kate over at Rigel's Wheel:
My friend Kate in Iowa is someone I have the deepest respect for. This lady is a phlebotomist (draws blood like a vampire, bua haha) who works with very sick babies, something that would break my heart just to be around. Her friends call her an Angel, and that's exactly what she is. Kate's blog is a mix of funny stories, family life and the heartbreaking happenings at the hospital ~ featuring what she calls her dear little "Warrior Babies". Kate, it's people like you that this world needs more of and I'm proud to be your friend.
Danni at Ramblings Of A Mama:
Danni is my link to Australia, and this Ozzie lass is one of the very first online friends I met! Another Def Leppard fan (and we "share" the bass player) she is a rockin' mamma of 2 beautiful little girls, Paige and Summer. I love going over to read about the antics of her girls, her love of all things rock music, and how to celebrate Christmas during summer! LOL (still trying to get used to the fact that she is in the midst of winter right now!) Danni, you make the prettiest baby girls!
Xavier over at Xavierism:
I've saved this one till last, as I've so much to say about this dear friend and I need to try to pare it down. Xavier resides in Arizona which in my mind is much too far away from me. He is my spiritual counterpart, I don't know how best to say it. A warm and loving spirit, he and I have shared some conversations that inspire and humble me. Xavier's blog is all about his favourite music, spiritual matters and the struggles and absolute joys of living this life. We can't remember exactly how we "found" each other in blogland (in somebody else's blog comments I believe), but we're just happy that we did. Xavier I love you dearly and I truly believe I must have had my head stuck up my behind until I met you!
And to kinda sorta "cheat" a little and because now I can get his photo in, in case you missed my last post you should visit my friend (and another Def Leppard fan) Michael and Michael's Blog whose skills with a camera inspire me so much in my own photography hobby. (just like the professional rock band and sports photographer, my talented friend Rhonda ~~ SEE?? I need more than 7!! LOL)
This was REALLY hard because how do you leave out so many of your favourite reads? (Including the one who nominated you!) Let me just suggest that if you aren't a visitor to all of my bloglinks, check them all out.
The Rules: Put the logo on your blog if you wish with a link to the person who awarded it to you (if you want). You need to nominate 7 other blogger's for the award and put links to them also on your blog. Finally, leave a comment for those you've nominated - so they know they've received a special award! This is only IF you want to!
Have a great weekend everyone, take good care of each other.
