I want to do a post about awards because, even though I try to never feel guilt with this blog, when it comes to awards, I do. You see, I have been so blessed to *meet* so many wonderful bloggers through this process. I have received the sweetest comments, been given all of the virtual love that a girl could want, and I have felt encouraged and appreciated here. I have also been honored with awards. Quite a number of the actually.
The problem is this~ I haven't posted about them because something about it makes me feel odd. Honestly, I don't know what it is. I think that the ones where they ask questions about you are difficult for me because it makes me feel like I *HAVE* to write a certain thing rather than what is in my head that day. I also think that maybe, because, in the beginning I didn't post about them, I have felt guilty that if I started now, it would seem like I was ignoring the initial ones - like they didn't matter. You see? I am conflicted and guilty.
I guess what I wanted to say was that I honesty, truly feel honored when someone awards me with something because it makes me feel that, at the very least, they enjoy my blog. Maybe, just maybe, it has at one time inspired them. That is my goal in all of this - to inspire people, whether it is with food, or beauty, or photography, or kindness. Please don't think that I am not thankful that you would want to give me an award. Simply know that for now, I don't really *do* them, for whatever reason.
