Surprise! or What an honor to be nominated for the Illuminating Blogger Award

This morning when I checked my mail I noticed a very nice comment from a fellow blogger, Pop The Bubbly.  It read as follows:

i’ve enjoyed reading your site and have nominated you for the illuminating blogger award for illuminating, informative blog content. (i’m passing on the love!) you can check out the details on their site: http://foodstoriesblog.com/illuminating-blogger-award.

What is this?  How exciting!  I right away clicked on the link she kindly provided and found the blog, Food Stories.

This award nomination is all about Food and Stories together (in perfect harmony.)  I’m all about telling stories with my photography and I enjoy writing, so I was very excited about this.

It says in part:

Food Stories is pleased to present the Food Stories Award for Excellence in Storytelling, a fabulous nomination that anyone can bestow on their fellow bloggers.

Wow! I don’t know what to say, other than Thank you to Pop! (who’s real name is Rebecca.)

So, in order to qualify  have to do the following:

1.  Thank the blogger that nominated me.  Thank you again, Rebecca of Pop the Bubbly

2. Share one random thing about myself.  Hmmm.  That’s a tough one because most of my thoughts are pretty random to everyone but me.  Okay, I call myself a Crow Photographer because I have a tendency to shoot anything colorful, shiny and/or pretty.

3.  Select 5 other bloggers whom I would like to nominate:

Marinating on Line  (This blog is written by a real live chef living in Colorado. Excellent!)

Mama’s Gotta Bake  (I mean just look at her header and you know you’ve got to read it.  Great photos, too.)

Gourmandistan  (A charming little food blog written by another Husband and Wife team living on a Kentucky tobacco farm.)

The Faux Martha  (She has tips, good photos and recipes you want to try.)

The Domestic Man (This is a new one I’m following. I like it because it is very manly presentation of food and the photos are good.

So there you have it.  All I have to do now is notify the above nominees and Food Stories and wait to see what will happen.

Wonder if there’s anything else in here:

And, as usual, the Fam is quite supportive of any and all awards, nominations, mentions, etc. that come our way.

Thank you again, Rebecca fr mentioning Yes!Chef!
