Blog Award Time!

"March is a tomboy with tousled hair, a mischievous smile, mud on her shoes and a laugh in her voice."
- Hal Borland -

Happy...happy...OH SO HAPPY March, everyone!

We made it, folks. Made it through another winter. And we’re on our way to spring; my favourite season of the year. I’m so excited that I feel like I’m going to blow! New beginnings, awakenings, rebirth, longer days, warmer’s all coming up. Not only do I look forward to all the excitement waiting for me in my own back yard, but there are day trips, photo shoots, hikes, long walks, and on and on and on. Fun and adventure is up ahead --- all outdoors! YAHOO!

Okay, now that I got that out of my system, let’s move on to the main reason for this post: the presentation of my homemade award to another of my favourite bloggers.

This month I’d like to present the award to Laeli, a quirky, sensitive, adventurous fellow blogger who has a wonderful sense of humour, a unique and highly entertaining writing style, and a gal who loves to travel. I followed her blog ‘Soular Sister’ for a long time, and then she packed it up (sadness) and started a new one (happiness) called Into The Great Wide Open, an ‘adventure time blog’ where her spirit and talents live on.

If you haven’t discovered this wonderful blogger yet, head on over there right away! Click here and you’ll be magically transported.

Congratulations, Laeli!

And remember: There are no hard and fast rules to the award. You don’t have to display it on your blog if you don’t want to. Or write anything about yourself. Just know that I think you have a 'totally funkalicious' blog, and I’m glad I stumbled across it. The award and a link to your blog will be featured on the right sidebar of my blog for the entire month of March, so others may get a chance to discover you and enjoy what you have to offer.

I wish you all a great month ahead. Spring is absolutely on its way! Here’s a little something to make you chuckle...

Ain't that the truth! Poor little pup...
