I am thrilled and honored to announce that my friend Michelle of KidazzleInk.com nominated me for a beautiful award called the WordPress Family Award. When I first found out, I felt recognition, like “that’s exactly how I feel about blogging”. In fact, I now include visiting friends I’ve made through blogging as part of my travel plans and those connections with my worldwide blogging family has made everywhere I visit feel like home.
Like all things in the blogosphere, the “Part of the WordPress Family Award” was created by one of us. I love that we get to just create how we want life to be. Let me introduce you to Shaun @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/, your fellow blogger who invented this award to recognize the families that spring up around the blogisphere. Here is what he says about the award:
‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side as only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you,
Now for the award rules.

Some of you get nominated all the time for me… please feel free to just accept the acknowledgement if you are not up for following the award rules! You are very much part of my blog family so I have to mention you yet again! I always think about you when I’m taking pictures so it can be said you travel with me.
