Raani York so graciously bestowed the REALITY Blog Award to catnipoflife on November 11, 2012. Since catnip had already received this award it was proposed to Raani for the award to go to Awakenings, catnipoflife's sister site. With Raani's blessing, Awakenings accepts the award with only one slight modification. Let's take a moment to examine the criteria for Awakenings' acceptance.
Awakenings is. . .
Real: Embraces the past, empowers the present, enriches the future...
Energizing: Activates and invigorates the senses providing insight into who we are, what we do and why we are here...
Amazing: Opens the mind to surprise and wonder within American tradition...
Lovely: Nice - beautiful - pretty - charming - sweet - fair
Inspiring: Stimulates reflection within personal whisperings quenching the thirst to discover and learn more...
Touching: Delves into the poignant nature of history...
Yippee: Provides excitement toward understanding America's ancestral story!
Not really sure she fits the criteria of Lovely but I will leave that up to you - her readers. She does present some really nice reflections within her beautiful poetry and is often accompanied by some pretty charming pictures, sweet topics and always plays fair.
