Hits the mark

I love when I get a blog award I've never seen, much less heard of.


So it was particularly exciting to get an award I had never heard of from Aimee at Greeblemonkey. She wrote:

Allison from Soccer Mom in Denial works hard every day to make the world a better place and I am so proud of her. She reminds me to speak up for what is right.
For Aimee, one of the smartest, funniest and talented bloggers out there (really, I only can only long for such a dynamic site), to think of me like that is, well, humbling. Sometimes I feel like I'm just yelling at the top of my lungs from the soapbox. I greatly appreciate that she listens.

I would like to clarify that for me something that involves an award, a public acknowledgement of something good, funny or thoughtful, doesn't strike me as a meme task. It's these list-your-favorite-fruit-snacks type activities that drive me a tad batty.

So now, without further ado, I pass this little award on to...

Jen in Michagan who writes at A2eatwrite. She is a writer and it shows in the pieces she gives us. Each post is like a present, a thoughtful and well thought out present. She does not just write, she composes and reading her work makes me a better writer.

How much has Jen inspired me? I've tried writing fiction and will be doing it again on January 31st for Jen's Writing Game. So come back and see what silliness Jen has me doing. It will involve a dog with special powers.

And Aimee? She is also an amazing photographer and has given Jenn in Holland and me another photo to share at Looking Into. So go look. It is lovely.

Wow, SMID! I'm speechless (for once). Thank you, thank you, thank you! It's been kind of a hard day, and I can't tell you how this cheered me. And I totally agree with Aimee!

Well deserved and well passed on! And such a cute button it is. However, I have noticed a lack of lip smackin' on your side bar.
