First up is the "Community Blogger" award, given to me by Desert Songbird:
This award celebrates "those who reach out and make the blogging world a better place." I think I received it b/c MONTHS after she won a prize on my blog, I finally got around to sending it in the mail. She shouldn't feel slighted, though. It's a Tiggerlane Tradition. Just ask any of my friends or coworkers. They are constantly appalled that I wait until March or so to send my parents their Christmas gifts. Hey - isn't it more of a surprise that way? At any rate, I'm not sure I deserve this one.
Next up, is "The Colors of Friendship" award, I got from Kila, who is known as the "Mom to 3 Cubs."If there is an award for raising three fiesty boys, AND blogging on a regular basis? Kila should win it hands-down. I am constantly amazed that she has any time in her life at all to get on the computer, much less come up with a SLEW of fabulous gifts for mine and Julie's recent blogosphere house-warming party!
And I like the design of this award. It helps me reflect on my possible origins.
Last but not least, comes the "Be The Blog" award from Bond's Comfy Big Leather Couch:
And just so you know, this blog wouldn't be as cool without Bond, b/c he designed that fancy new masthead you see above.
So THANK YOU to all my readers, my commenters, my lurkers, and my award-givers. I'm really not worthy, but I appreciate your kindness. You make me want to continue this "blogging more often" phase, even after the clowns of NaBloPoMo are satiated gone.
