The Versatile Blogger Award and One Lovely Blog Award


I am so honored and excited that Hello, New Day has been given two blogging awards!

The Versatile Blogger Award

The Versatile Blogger Award is a wonderful way for bloggers to share their favorite bits of the blogosphere  with their readers and to support their fellow bloggers.

The adorable Kjerstin from The Way I Am gave Hello, New Day this award way back in May.  (Sheesh! Time sure has a way of slipping away from me.)


Kjerstin from The Way I Am




I am sooooo thankful and grateful to Kjerstin for this recognition and for her support.  The Way I Am is a fun place where Kjerstin shares random tidbits of her life.  She often participates in a weekly series called "Friday's Letters" where she writes little letters to anyone and anything that may have impacted her that week.  Check it out when you have a minute!

Life is full of rules and regulations, and The Versatile Blogger Award is no different.  Upon receipt of this award (or two months later ☺), here's what's required:

The Rules
  1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this award along to up to 15 blogs you enjoy reading.
  4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.
Seven Things About Me
  1. I'm allergic to shellfish.
  2. I've seen the stage production of Mamma Mia 5 times (twice on Broadway, once in Las Vegas, and twice in Salt Lake City.)
  3. I always wanted to skydive - until I took my first flight on an airplane and realized I have a fear of heights.
  4. I never graduated from high school, but I have 2 Bachelor's Degrees from the University of Utah.
  5. I love board games, especially Pictionary (does anyone even play that anymore?)
  6. My nickname is Beppo.
  7. I met my husband when we were both teenagers working at McDonald's.
And the Award Goes To...

I would like to present The Versatile Blogger Award to:

Gary from Being Gawee


Being Gawee - Musings from an Everyday Life is a fun blog written by a charming fellow in Australia.  He participates in Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-day Challenge with me and he posts his daily photos along with entertaining, often witty, commentary.   

And

Stephanie is a sweet, endearing girl from South Carolina who blogs about everyday life as a twenty-something.  Her honesty and sincerity are heartwarming, and her posts are delightful to read.  Her blog's title is a testament to the versatility of her blogging topics - everything From Ice Cream to Belly Rings!



One Lovely Blog Award


And speaking of Stephanie, she has given Hello, New Day the One Lovely Blog Award!!


Thank you so much, Stephanie!  Your kindness and support mean so much to me!  Here are the rules for the One Lovely Blog Award:
 
The Rules
  1. Post the award logo and link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this award along to up to 15 blogs you enjoy reading.
  4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.
Since I've already shared 7 things about myself, I'll get right to the award presentation.  I would like to give a One Lovely Blog Award to:

Lori from A Speck of Dust



A Speck of Dust - Scribbling Down Our Life Stories is a lifestyle blog where my beautiful, talented, funny sister scribbles down her life story.  It's entertaining, motivating and definitely One Lovely Blog.  She doesn't post terribly often, but when she does, it's worth reading.  Stop by and say hello when you have a chance.

And
Kjerstin from The Way I Am






 As I mentioned above, The Way I Am is a fun place where Kjerstin shares random tidbits of her life.  She often participates in a weekly series called "Friday's Letters" where she writes little letters to anyone and anything that may have impacted her that week.  Her posts are fun to read and you can tell by reading her blog that she is a sweetheart and definitely deserves this One Lovely Blog award.

And last, but certainly not least,

Ruby from Fuchsia Vision


Speaking of sweethearts, Ruby writes a blog called Fuchsia Vision where she shares photos, poems, printables, and little glimpses into her life in India.  Her writing style is so serene and beautiful; her blog is absolutely One Lovely Blog.

Whew!  I didn't know this would be such a looooong post.  If you've read this far - I'm impressed.  Congratulations to all of you award-winning bloggers!  And to my wonderful readers, thanks for stopping by!
