Ok, I admit it, I can get very excited, especially when I hear such nice things from lovely people who I have gotten to know through this blog! First to get me excited was Jamie at Lyrical Journey (http://lyricaljourney.blogspot.com) and then my heart sank for her when I read about her losing her grandfather who picked raspberries for her and sounded like the sweetest gentleman.
Then the lovely, fresh, happy Krissi from Freebird (http://kristinlugbill.blogspot.com) (who Jamie also gave the award to), said in her acceptance blog that she too would have given it to me but Jamie beat her to it! I was so touched, flattered, excited, that in the comments I left to her I suggested we all have a virtual cake & celebratory drink (the people she nominated, the people who I nominated and also the people I have grown to know through this blog, the people Jamie nominated and you know I got carried away and thought what the hell, everyone who reads this and is inspired and is looking for a reason to celebrate!) - so here I am having a Raspberry tart for you all - and what is a party without some music?!
As I ate, I genuinely thought about you all and how lucky I was to be with loved ones and have such nice people in my life as I tucked into it laughing at the jokes Anders was making whilst Ben (Dexter's best friend who has returned from Japan) and Dexter scoffed into their own celebration party cake and drink - wrapped up in the joy of being reunited again! Yep, they were just celebrating being reunited after a long year apart!
A big cappuccino was my chosen drink.
Jamie - chose a raspberry tart in honour of you and hope your grandfather is picking really lovely ones with his wife in heaven.
Yummy - not that the expression Anders captured in this picture depicts that!!!
Who would have thought that you would make lovely blogging friends, I had no idea until I started my one so thank you for being you and for letting me have a virtual party in my head and in your honour!
