Beautiful Blogger & Very Inspiring Blogger Awards

This week I was honored to have been recognized again, this time by fellow blogger Ramanda, who is an aspiring writer. We’ve had several really fun discussions lately about writing, and she will be joining me for some Camp NaNoWriMo fun this April. Check her blog out…you will appreciate her honest take on life. In fact, if she hadn’t been the one to nominate me for these, she would probably be on the nominee list below.

She has kindly nominated me for two awards: The Beautiful Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award.
