All about Hoofbeats & Footprints

With Great Gratitude

I must confess that I have been a neglectful hostess and have yet to acknowledge some kind and thoughtful awards that have been bestowed upon me recently. I am truly honored to each and everyone of you that have taken the time to subscribe and see my adventures throughout the world.

These awards are reader-to reader nominated and are given to those that are considered worthy.

The rules for all of these are similar.  If you choose…

  1. Add a photo for the award you received to a blog post.
  2. Link back to your nominating blogger in your post.
  3. Tell us some random stuff about yourself that might not be evident by following your blog.
  4. Nominate some worthy bloggers for the same award you received and leave them a note linking them back to your award post.

(Thank you Humbled Pie for this quick description)

Most recently, Humbled Pie has awarded me the

 Reader Appreciation Award

In particular, I owe Jennifer an apology at The Northward Route for my delay in acknowledging her award nomination. She sent it to me just prior to my trip to Peru, and I am only now getting time to present the award.

Jennifer Awarded the

Awesome Blog ContentABC” Award

These two awards are quite meaningful to me as they express the appreciation of the content within my blog – the stories, info and photos. So thank you to you both for these nominations.

I will condense some of the requirements for these awards, and provide seven (7) random facts of myself:

  1. I love to bake cookies.
  2. I love to work with hand tools.
  3. I am the daughter of a Latin American Anthropologist.
  4. I lived in Costa Rica and Bolivia when I was a child.
  5. I used to sing in a church choir and was a high soprano.
  6. I grow fresh vegetables in my garden.
  7. I drive a convertible Mini Cooper.

Now for my nominations…Drum Roll Please:

  1. Congrats, Bella Remy

    It’s your own fault that you can not make me shaken off as a regular reader – you write and photograph so I insist on reading your posts on your blog… ‘big big smile’

    Thanks for mentioning me, I’m delighted

  2. Well first off, a HUGE congratulations to you for receiving these awards! You really deserve them. I really enjoy reading your blog and getting to see the pictures from your travels. Getting to see Machu Picchu on here is a big plus for me. That has been on my dream list of places to visit forever!
    And secondly, thank you for nominating me for the ABC award. I appreciate it so much and feel really humbled.
