"I'd Like To Thank the BlogCademy..."

Guess what? I got an award.... how bout that?
The Arte y Pico award (I have no clue what this means.... my "spanglish" is not quite that evolved...)

Anyway, sweet Bella bestowed this beautiful award upon me.
And, now I get to SHARE THE LOVE and pass it along to a handful of Blogger Buddies.
Here are the guidelines for this award...

1) Pick five blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.
2) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
3) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award which is here: Arte y Pico.

I'm awarding the Arte y Pico to the following blogs:

1. Beautiful D'Arcy who has become my Fast Friend.... she has such a full, happy, rich view of the world. I love reading her blog and I love her friendship!
2. Gustav from Australia who writes the most amazing, thought-provoking posts.
3. Robb (and Tara!) from New Zealand. I must say, I never knew anything about NZ before I started reading Robb's blog and now I'm transfixed by its beauty.
4. Laurie from SD. Laurie is MAGICAL with her camera.... who knew that such amazing beauty could be found in South Dakota??!! (Certainly not me!)
5. Karen from Seattle for her open and beautiful spirit. I think everyone who visits Karen's blog is deeply moved and touched by her spirit and her strength.

I'd like to thank Eduardo Verastegui, without him, this award could not have been possible.

I'd like to thank HappyWife for all her comments, and all my dear readers, without whom, my blog wouldn't be half so interesting.

I'd like to thank my 8th grade English teacher for helping me learn that I love writing, and oh, no, that darn music is playing....wait, I'm not finished, don't you dare go to commercial!!!! I love you mom, I love you dad, I love all my fans and most of all........

commercial break.

Ha ha ha!!! Oh yes, we CAN'T forget Eduardo Verastegui... the man who puts CANDY into EYE CANDY!
(D'Arcy, if only he KNEW how much he inspired us both.... sigh....)

I'm laughing out loud at your comment.. You are TOO funny, girl!

What can I say? - I am speechless.

I'd like to dedicate this award to my daughter Maya and my Mom who both have given me so much and demanded so little.

Thank you to the judge and your wonderful support and happy encouragement. You are a rare and special human.

Time to go to D'Arcy's big fashion party in Paris - Bye!

Kia ora,
Cheers HWHL. As I write, near crippled with the flu here in wintry New Zealand I am attempting to smile. Thanks for brightening my day. I must return now to being a helpless sick, whining male. Not that it helps get any extra attention from Tara! Kia ora.
