It’s my lovely honor to announce that the lovely souls and bloggers: Miro, http://warriorpoetwisdom.comAutumn & Gabby,, and Deb,, have nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  I’m at a loss for words, except, my most heartfelt “Thank You!”

It’s also my lovely honor to pass this award on to some other lovely bloggers. And since there are no rules or limits specified, this is a lovely way to express thanks to my lovely new friends.  I got carried away with this list and knew I had to stop, but I really could have gone on forever~

You’re all wonderful and I want to thank you for inspiring me with your creativity, positivity and encouragement!

Smiles and Blessings to you~

Lauren 🙂

      1. And…thanks again, Deb, for nominating me; you’re on my list, too, and I hope you know that! It’s like we’re passing it back and forth! Hugs and Blessings to you tonight! xx

  1. Congratulations and thank you Lauren for this award. I had been feeling a bit sad due to Life and more submission rejects and this award could not have come at a better time. Now it’s back to work. I’ve got some poetry and scripts that I’m working on and duty calls… Thanks again.

    1. Thanks so much, Sandra, and congrats to you and I’m so glad I could lift your spirits a bit. That’s great about writing scripts, so keep it up and you’ll see light at the end of the tunnel! Have a wonderful day today~ Hugs!

    Oh wow–Congratulations to you, Lauren! I didn’t know about this one–“lovely” thanks to you for the nomination, and I’ll try my best to do it justice! (No “hard” rules this time–whew!) My best to you–and by the way, I so love that photo–is it you and your husband on your wedding day? Sending hugs, but no extra germs! xxxooo

    1. Thanks, Caddo, this is new to me, too! They seem to come out of nowhere! 🙂 You’re very welcome, also, and so deserving, one of my loveliest blogging friends! Yes, this is from our wedding day, almost 23 years ago. This Saturday, Jan. 21st, is our 23rd~Thanks for your complement and for asking~Hugs back germ-free! Yay! xx

  5. Congratulations, Lauren. You could have no greater nominator than Miro. I keep seeing Gabby and Autumn nominating folks: I REALLY need to check them out IF I ever get time this month. Thank you so very much for your nomination of my blog. No time to respond properly right now, I am afraid.

    1. Thanks, Rose, and no problem with the timing. You’re also welcome and very, very deserving! As you can see, I’m a little behind! 🙂 Have you checked out the twinnies, yet? They’re awesome and I know you’ll love them, too! xx

    Kudos to you Lauren! You definitely deserve this award. I laud the effort you put into your work and I admire the dedication you have in being a prolific writer. Thanks for your kind consideration. Hugs xx

    1. Sorry for the delay, Androgoth; it seems I’m always playing catch up, while balancing life and blogging! Thanks so much for your kind words and visit. I’ll be over your way soon! Have a wonderful Thursday! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Soma! I’m truly honored that you nominated me with this wonderful award! I’m going to need a little time to follow through, though, so please bear with me! Thanks again, my friend! Hugs!

  7. Dear Lscott, congrats , you deserve all the awards you have got. I have also nominated you for One lovely Blog Awards , please go through the link to know more -

    1. Thank you, Capricioussoul! I’m truly grateful and honored you thought of my blog for this award! I will need a little time to accept it, though, so please have patience with me! 🙂 Thanks again and Blessings!

  8. Hi, Lauren–Caddo, here! I have a question for you, “Queen of Blog Awards”: is it true that anyone can “create” a blog award and start passing it around? If so, I’ve got an idea for one. Do we start by giving it to ourselves, or what?? I can’t even believe I’ve just written these things–oh, “me, who didn’t want any awards” to begin with …… God bless you muchly today! xxxooo

    1. Hi Caddo! WP has been blocked and I just now got on! Anyway, you are funny! Honestly, I have no idea where the awards originate from..however, I do remember reading something about bloggers creating them, but I don’t remember where I read it! Funny, huh?? I also don’t know of anyone to ask, unless you email, to see what their advice is…Otherwise, I say, Go for it! 🙂 Hugs to you! xx

      1. Caddo Veil

        Good morning, Lauren! I don’t think I’ll ask wordpress–it takes them awhile to get to my technical questions, and this one would probably confirm me as a certifiable nut! However, I have one more (possibly stupid) question for you: did you interpret Betty’s acceptance of the Genuine Blogger Award, as including you and me in her nominations? I’m too embarrassed to ask her directly–which is truly ridiculous, I know. I don’t want to appear “greedy” on top of everything else–but I don’t want to ignore an opportunity to bless others, by passing it on, either….aiy yai yai!

      1. To Caddo,

        No question is ever stupid or silly! 🙂 She thanked us for other awards in the past and she did write “along with them, I would like to nominate…” So I would interpret that as a nomination. However, in my haste and playing catch up again, I didn’t catch that and wasn’t planning on following through. Again, however, I have some awards to follow through for and now will probably include her as nominating me. It’s a tough one. Read her post again and let me know what you think. Off to work I go, until later this afternoon! CA time! Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much, WillofHeart! Even though I do have this award, I’m still truly honored and humbled that you thought of me! I will need a few days to follow through, so I hope that’s okay~ Thanks again! 🙂

  9. Hi Lauren,
    Just so you know, you are included in the “Genuine Blogger Award” nominees. I’m so sorry that I didn’t make that more clear – that my thank you to both you and Caddo was also my nomination of you both!!

    So, consider this your official notification of nomination! 🙂 I’m going into that post right now to add you and Caddo to the other list so that it’s clear you most definitely belong there!! Hugs to you! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Betty, I just got home from work and am now checking email, so I don’t know what has transpired between you and Caddo. But, thank you! These awards are head-spinning! (in a good way, though) Anyway, thanks again, and you do know how much I appreciate being on your list! Hugs back! xx 🙂

      1. Caddo Veil

        Okay, so I’m just chiming in to say all the “head spinning” is cleared up on my end–we’re all award winners, wonderful and famous, yet again!

        “CA time”?–I can’t crack the code, my headache pills have me reeling (probably not a good idea to write my “acceptance speech” when I’m woozy, huh?)

        Glad you’re recovered and back to work, anyhow–chat with you later! God bless you always, Caddo xxoo

  10. You are both Lovely and Versatile, my dear, and once again so deserving of these recognitions. Lauren, I think one of your true gifts, that of community-building, is not only expressed in the way you’ve stated your award acceptance here and shared with a long line of grateful blog friends but in the way that you share yourself and your thoughts so lovingly and openly here on your blog every time you post. Many, many thanks for that generosity and grace!

    1. Kathryn, your comment leaves me speechless! I am not an actress, so please take this sincerely when I say that your words touched me…thank you so much! I don’t know what else to say, except, they are the same for you and I wish I had more time to read, write and comment! But, I’ll see you at your site over the weekend! Sending hugs your way, my new friend~
