Blogging Friends

Today I got a wonderful surprise, courtesy of my wonderful new friend Ivanhoe. She gave me the "Blogging Friends Forever" Gold Card and I so appreciate it. :-) She has a great blog and I love reading it because she is in a situation similar to myself, living as an expat. Please check her out. Here is my shiny new card. :-)



The terms for this BFF Gold Card are:

1. Only five people allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

I would now like to pass on this award to some great people with great blogs. It is hard to only pick five, because I read and enjoy so many out there. Anyway, I'll stick to the rules. :-) Here they are:

West of Mars

The Domestiquette

Red Pine Mountain

A Day to Share With Tammy

People You Need To Know

I enjoy so many blogs out there and I feel like I go on a journey everyday all over the world. I have connected with some amazing people and just look forward to tomorrow when I can connect once more.

Hey...it is me. I am alive. I am so sorry for not getting over here. My life has been a little rough for a week.

Thank you so much for the award. I will gladly display it. Hopefully, Wednesday or so of this week I will be making a post in reference to this.

Hi thanks for the comment in my blog, I wish I can really push through with my plan of turning the basement into an exercise den ;-). Winter is coming soon and that means not much activities and more eating, LOL. Hey I'm married to a brit boy too, he's originally from Liverpool and migrated to US. Good luck on learning the French language ;-)
