It is no surprise that Renee my Positive Boomer friend and I found each other’s blogs. Our titles kind of say it all, don’t I? She is amazingly supportive and inspirational for me. In my quest for better health and a healthier weight and lifestyle, her tips, advice, and support mean so much. In June (yes, that long ago) she nominated me for 2 awards. http://positiveboomer.net/2012/06/03/
As is typical for me when it comes to awards, I procrastinated. She gives out awards as a way to let folks know that she loves their blogs. I do the same thing—but procrastinate about picking who to pass them on to! BUT—today I am acknowledging her gift of 2 awards. Below the images of the awards are the rules and my awardees. Thank you so much, Renee!
Renee gave me these awards: the “Lovely Blog Award” and “Versatile Blog Award”.
