Welcome to Awardsville!

JarieLyn at Write Place! Write Chick! has a fantabulous blog!

She is and I quote, "a cool chick whose randomness wanders all over the page. I think. I dream. I write. This blog is my outlet to tell tales about any damn thing I want. Simplicity is my style. If you think long intellectual words are boring and pretentious, then you will love my blog. You might think my writing is crap, but I guarantee it is authentically me."

Doesn't she just sound like someone you want to hang out with? Well please visit her and hang out with her in blogland. I guarantee you will be enthralled, enchanted, engaged, enchilada...oh wait, no...not enchilada (I'm just hungry). But she has honored me with the OVER THE TOP AWARD!

She also said the following about me:
Alicia at Titere Con Bonete because she is so delightful. I love her Iwanna Wednesday posts. Her energy is contagious.
