It’s AWARD Time!

Once again, I’m going to break my “award-free” status to do an award blog.  I’ve been nominated for 3 more awards, which all came in around the same time, so, I decided to go ahead and accept. I am so very grateful to all my nominators. It’s wonderful to be acknowledged by other phenomenal bloggers. That being said,  I’d like to apologize to my nominators for taking so long to post this blog. FYI-ALL NOMINATIONS WILL BE AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE. (This will be a bit long, so bare with me) ON WITH THE SHOW…
