Blog of the Year 2012!

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegOne of my favorite bloggers, Kim at Tranquil Dreams made my day this morning by awarding me the 2012 Blog of the Year Award.  If you haven’t checked out Tranquil Dreams, you should!  I love the post on Dim Sum, which I would eat every day if I had the choice and metabolism; all the baking posts; and the photos and travel stories are fantastic!

I know that I’ve said it before, but I am really thankful for having discovered this community of bloggers, aka writers, dreamers, photographers, artists, poets, comedians, and truly unique people. In my few months of blogging I’ve discovered amazing people, ideas, and outlooks- all of which have enriched my life and made me a better writer.  So I would like to award the people and blogs that I have read, loved, followed, and learned from this year:
