My First Love

Yay, me! Today, I received my first blog love (which just so happens to be my first blog award of any kind). What a nice Valentine's sentiment. I had just been lamenting how Valentine's Day is really rather stupid--just a manufactured holiday to generate revenue. I would rather be showered on my birthday because that's at least personal, or an anniversary because that has sentimental value, or Mother's Day because that recognizes the hard work I invest year-round.

Perhaps I am just a Valentine's scrooge.
But then I got this. Maybe I just needed to feel loved to appreciate February 14th.

With token appreciation, I humbly accept this award. I would like to thank the people (okay, fermentedfur) who made this award possible. I promise not to let it go to my head. There isn't room, anyway.

So, on this Valentine's Day, I hereby encourage each and every one of you to go forth and make love by planting it's seed in somebody you care about!

(Man, if only I had a bigger following. I would love to do a study and find out if there's a blogging baby boom next November)

Just had to pass it along to you, because you obviously have the perfect combination of a big heart, and little tolerance for idiocy or the total nut-jobs (or nutcakes) out there. A girl after MY own heart! ;-)

Your wish is my command. ; )

I've been waiting to see if you'd post today, of all days. Glad to see something positive happen to you. Really getting a lot from your posts & can relate on many levels. Keep up the good work.

Awesome news.
Congrats are in order.

This is hopefully the first of many accolades.

Thanks...it's not really an award, just fermentedfur being nice and thinking of me! But funny you should use the word accolades b/c it reminds me of my "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" post where I was still a newborn blogger and dealing with criticism & accolades simultaneously. It's a terrific read if I do say so myself ;)

I was wondering why I didn't see any award graphics.

Well. we will have to do something about that.
