Breaking News

Before admiring my new gown, I want you to go visit Aya's blog.  Quick!  Right now.  Put down your cup of coffee and go read her words.

Aya demonstrates her worthiness for the Bloggy Award by using the occasion to reflect deeply on a matter personal to her and relevant to the rest of us.  Her examination of that subject is intelligent and thoughtful.  Reading it, we benefit from her ideas.

I have two motivations for the Bloggy Awards -- first, to recognize and reward exceptional efforts in blogging and, second, to promote connections and friendships among bloggers.  Both goals appear to be happening.  Thanks, Aya, for your contribution in this direction.


  1. I am really glad that you nominated Aya. I have had a lot of fun reading her blog and interacting with her on twitter. Thank you for that :)

    1. My pleasure. That was my goal. You three are such nice people I want the world to know you!

  2. That's a lovely idea! I will go and have a look!x

  3. You, my friend, are a force of community, weaving it around your beautiful personality.

  4. Wow what talent. This is so amazing. I am very impressed by this talent. How exciting. I have always wanted an illustration of myself. Also, just wanted t say how much I adore your last outfit post. You styled the look perfectly and it's my favourite of yours. The skirt is so WOW.

  5. i just stopped by and read her post. i am still leery of a compliment, convinced it's false or that there are ulterior motives. she is most deserving of the award, oh yes!

  6. I really like her blog. Thanks for introducing me to it.
