Life is Beautiful!

Today I have been honoured with a Liebster Blog nod. I have been thusly honoured by the awesome blogger Clown on Fire.

This is how I feel…

Roberto Benigni’s Oscar acceptance speech flashed through my head when I heard COF had considered me for the Liebster Blog nod. I was a happy mix of totally gobsmacked and pure, unadulterated jumping-on-the-cushions-of-my-couch happy. And, just like Roberto Benigni, I do want to kiss everybody now!

There are a few Rules that come with the Lovely, Little Liebster Blog nod. They are as follows:

1. Provide a link to the blogger who gave the award.

  • Thank you from the bottom of my little, black heart Clown on Fire. You are a great blogger, activist, Super-über Dad and Wunder-Mensch!

2. Pass the award on to up to 5 other bloggers with less than 200 followers. Some of the blogs I follow have more than 200 followers, and since I love all the blogs I follow, it was a bit of a challenge to even begin a list. Here are the bloggers I pass the Sparkly Tiara of Liebsterness to:

  • elle’s vegan food diary – Every time I visit this blog, I’m inspired. Wonderful recipes and beautiful foodie photos. Yum!
  • i wish i were vegan – This young lady is sharing her journey to plant-based eating with lovely eloquence. Yay!
  • Laments and Lullabies – Courageous, Tender, Awesome, Wonderful, Strong, Brave, Warrior, Artist, Beautiful… Inspiring!

3. Finally, lay back and enjoy that you are loved!

I’m still pretty new around here, and without looking like a total noob, I hope I did the acceptance and passing-it-on parts properly.

    I think WE are freakin’ AWESOME, that’s what I think! Congratulations to US! I love us!

    I like cookies. My new, holistic/prescribing therapist has me on a gluten-free diet. It went down like this: “No… Yes.” “No…. Yes.” “But cookies… Sorry.” Do you have any good cookie recipes that are free of da glutens? Oh, and a dough that I can use for pastry/pizza/calzones, and the like?

    Just let me know where to send the self-addressed, stamped envelope.

        I don’t even know the difference between gluten-fee and wheat free. I must be wheat free because the only wheat I know I can eat are buckwheat pancakes.

        Oh, yes, please. I would LOVE if you could take the time to post some links! I need yummy.

        PS- I broke the gluten-free (wheat free, whatever) last night. I definitely have some kind of gluten-intolerance, and I won’t tell you why! Argh.

    And now, to comment in a way that doesn’t highjack your comments section…
    You are swell. Like, Lucinda-Williams-and-Ryan-Gosling-in-a-duet awesome (trust me, that is some kind of awesome in my head).
    COF tried to give me the award and I told him to eff off….but from you, it’s very different. You have no married-so-I-have-to-be-nice obligations. And I am so stealing wunder-mench. Greatest mash-up I’ve seen in the last 16 days.

    Sorry for taking so long to respond, but thank you for thinking of me! I’m enjoying hearing about your cooking, especially about how you’re involving your kids, and I look forward to many more posts. I’ll pass on the favor when midterm season dies down a bit :)
