  1. Congratulations, Darlene! It really is such a sweet feeling and high compliment, isn’t it? And I can’t tell you how complimented I feel being among these other amazing bloggers, most of whom I actually follow! I’m sure if I were to attempt making a list (I give you credit for tackling it!), they’d appear on mine, too lol And I most certainly accept the compliment from you, though I made the decision to “officially” accept awards : / I don’t think you were following my blog at the time I posted about that so, if you’re curious, here it is:

    And thank you for making me feel so good! 😀
