Sisterhood Award

I have been honored by Kaye Barley, a fellow writer from North Carolina, with the Sisterhood Award. The Sisterhood Award is an award from bloggers to bloggers in recognition of a blog spot which shows attitude and/or gratitude. Kaye’s blog, Meanderings and Muses, is a place for friends to share thoughts and conversations about anything and everything. I encourage you to stop by Kaye’s delightful blog and pay her a visit as we say in the south. 

I wish to pass this Sisterhood Award on to some of my friends who share my passion for writing: Lynn, Kudzu Kottage, Brenda Kaye Ledford, Blue Ridge Poet, Shirley, Dogs, Puppies & Prose and Judy, It is what it is. 

If this wasn’t the Sisterhood Award I would also pass it on to two members of my wonderful prose critique group who patiently listen and share their comments on my writing of my memoir twice a month, Jerry, Jerry the Writer Guy and Richard, A Piece of my Mind. They both have great witty and intellectual blogs, but far be it from me to give men girly stuff.

I also would like to pass this to some of my new friends from around the world who share my passion for food. Two North Carolina foodies, Penny, Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen and Judy, Judy’s Kitchen in New Bern. Tennessee neighbor Katherine, Smoky Mountain Cafe who blew up from New Orleans after Katrina. Dar, Girlichef from her tiny kitchen in Indiana to Mary at One Perfect Bite. Culinary Wannabe in the big apple, Sophie, Sophies Foodie Files in Brussels and Selby, Selby’s Food Corner in Jakarta. 

In keeping with the tradition of passing this award forward, here are the rules. The Sisterhood Award is an award from bloggers to bloggers in recognition of a blog spot which shows attitude and/or gratitude. 
1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate up to 10 blogs which show great attitude and/or gratitude
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog, or sending them an email.
5. Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.

This is my gift to you for taking the time to visit my kitchen and leave your comments. Enjoy the Sisterhood Award, post it on your blog and pass it on to your blogger friends.

  3. Sam, Thank you so much for passing this award on to me. I feel that we have so much in commom and supporting each other is what it is all about. Keep up the good work and I will try to do the same.

  4. Congrats on the award Sam and thank you for passing it along to me! I am flattered and honored.

  6. Thank you so much for passing this award to me, Sam :) You make my day!

  7. Sam, you have quite a following, sister!!! I am not amazed, because YOU are such a good blogger friend..loyal and so generous with compliments.

  8. Thank you so much, Sam, for this award. It's the second time I've received it and still an honor. I will pass it on as quickly as I can. BTW, we got your rain and it's very dreary out here on the coast.

  9. Thank you Sam! I'm overjoyed!!!! These are some of my favorite people and to be mentioned along side of them is a thrill beyond all thrills!!!!

    You're so good at this! I aspire to be even HALF as good at you!!!


  10. Blogging is such fun. Everyone should have this sisterhood award. Makes me feel a part of a new world. Glad to be able to pass it along.

  11. Congratulations on this and your earlier awards! I recognize some of your recipients and the others are new ones to explore. I look forward to making new friends, too!

  12. Sam, Just returned from a trip and saw my "award". As we used to say back home, "The faster I go, the behinder I get." Not proper English but so true. I continue to be amazed at how professional and attractive you make this web site. But I shouldn't be. The work on your memoirs proves you have a real knack for quality. Thanks for the award. I'm sure Richard nor I feel threatened by the "Sisterhood" and appreciate the nice words.

  13. I love reading your stories as if I am there! Good advice on saying 'I am sorry, and where is the bathroom'... When we travel I always practice many phrases and things, so we do not get into trouble :), like Italy when my husband forgot how to drive a stick shift (I drove the rest of the time) and the driveway he tried to turn around in, the owner came out and moved it for him, I was laughing, but he would not give in and let me help! Thankfully I could communicate, and drive (I learned on a stick)

  14. Oh, hubby grew up in NYC, so no car till he was 21 I think in Texas!


Thank you for stopping by.
