Epically Awesome – that’s me!

epically awesome award

I have been nominated for an Epically Awesome Award. If it was in Scotland it would be the Pure, Dead, Brilliant Award. Anyway, lets get on with it before my head gets any bigger… πŸ™‚

1. You are awesome; tell us why.
Surely it’s obvious – just look at my blog! I rarely feel awesome but I do appreciate that my writing affects people. In real life, I try very hard to be a good person with a peculiar mix of tactlessness and compassion. I think it works.

2. You are my friend; tell us about other friends.
I have so many friends and am lucky to have them. I have friends from childhood, college, work, neighbors and groups. It is so important to keep in touch with people if you want to maintain friendships (and Facebook doesn’t do it for me). Blogging has opened up a whole new world of friends who I share my deepest secrets with although it is a public forum. It’s a conundrum.

3. Be creative, but it’s ok if you are having trouble with this one/ There are no direct questions to answer; let yourself run wild!

Nature in its simplicity and grandeur warms my heart and makes me glad to be alive. My photographs of critters fill me with joy because I was lucky enough to share some private time with them and then share their beauty with the world. Gracias little Ibis.

4. Now notify your nominees and thank the blogger who nominated you.
Thank you to Callum at Student in Snowdonia for nominating me. Callum has a beautiful blog with very nostalgic photographs of North Wales. My husband and I spent our first two married years there and we weren’t much older than Callum.

My nominees are

Southern Georgia Bunny because her mom and my mum must have been spiritual sisters – awesomely weird and hilarious.

Hot Mess Memoirs because she made me laugh out loud at her story of an 80 year old pervert.

Samara’s Muses because, like me, she talks to weird people at airports and writes with poignancy.

On the Road Cooking because Pan cooks the most amazing food on a tiny wee oven in a truck!

Carmen from Escapades because she is taking midterms and yet still has an esthetically fabulous blog.

  1. Oh my gosh! Thank you sooo much for this! I am honored and this just made my day! πŸ™‚ I’m glad that my story telling of an 80 year old perv made you smile! He would thank you too but he is too busy putting on his purchases from my garage sale. πŸ˜‰

  2. Richly deserved and I’m glad to see that you acknowledge your writing touches and effects people πŸ™‚ Now I’m off to put the kettle on for some proper builders tea, put my feet up and read your nominated blogs (with the exception of Pan who I am happy to be well acquanted with already). And I’ll also look at the Snowdonia blog … my Aunt is from Bethesda so it was part of my childhood in a way. Hugs to you epically awesome, pure dead brlliant lady πŸ™‚

    • Lol, I was going to say that ! Oh well, twisted minds think alike ! Hmm what a statement to make to a person you just met after 5 minutes of conversation that you find hard to follow or stay awake..
      “Why you’re just pure dead brilliant !”

      Kerry, you are epically awesome.. Your variety, willingness to post an be vulnerable, wicked sense of humor and down to earth common sense, make you a complete gift of cheers and tears for your readers.. And I strongly suspect for everyone in your life as well..
      You wear this award well..
      I’ve not participated in the 2 other awards I’ve been nominated for, for 2 reasons 1. I still don’t know how to post the pic of an award, except the page I made for people to check awesome bloggers I read.. The other is time and lack of tech savvy, which makes it take more time..
      But, Thank you !!! for writing such a great description of what my blog is about and saying I’m epically awesome..
      How am I epically awesome ?
      Because some people think I am and I don’t like to let people down.. lol

      Thank you again for the nomination..
      And thank you, for being you πŸ’›

      • That is so kind, Pan. I really appreciate your words. The awards are just a bit of fun with some kindness in them. It allows you to showcase newer bloggers. I couldn’t do my first award because I am secretly a Luddite and I wasn’t following enough people. You are epically awesome especially when you feed other truckers are probably lonely and enjoy the joie de vivre in your truck.
