Hi Bethany - you are more than welcome! I think your blog is wonderful - it was one of the first book blogs I ever read and it always keeps me coming back for more.

Tamara said...

Merci Beaucoup Karen,I'm really honoured. Creativity is so important in the balanced life, and I appreciate that you see this aspect in me. You know, to see it in someone else, is a reflection on you... You are creative and deserved to be nominated in the first place. Keep it up, and be happy.

Laura said...

I enjoyed reading your answers to the meme! I'm wondering how you use the word "ewok" in a sentence? All that comes to mind for me is those little furry bear-like creatures from Star Wars :)

tanabata said...

Thank you so much! It always makes me so happy to know people enjoy my photos. :)
I'm back to blogging again after my little break and will try to get my answers up soon.

Jill said...

Congrats and thanks for passing it on!

Karen said...

Hi Laura - Ewok is the name of my cat (yes, named after the furry little Star Wars characters!) so I get to use it quite a bit during the day!
Hi Tanabata - looking forward to reading your blogging again now that you are back from your break.
Hi Jill - you are more than welcome!
