Catch-Up: Awards

I have been terribly behind on a large number of posts, so I will be working on catching up by combining a few of them!  I'm working on getting a schedule that I can follow to get caught up on my many reviews as well as much of my more technical issues.  Some of this will come in time!

For now, I would like to focus on a few awards that I have received.  I always LOVE receiving awards, and I have to give a big shout-out right back to those that passed them on to me!!  THANK YOU!!

And, now for the awards . . .
