About the Proximity award: "These blogs invest and believe in Proximity...nearness in space, time, and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and to be friends. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to 8 bloggers, who must then chose 8 more and include this text into the body of their award."
Eight is a big number for me... so I'm going to limit myself to three when it comes to giving awards. (I once heard someone say the three wise men each brought one gift and 3 gifts is all any of us should give or receive.) The three people who come to mind for this particular award are below. Please take a moment to visit all of their blogs.
1- Holli, whose "Three Wishes" blog is full of amazing photos and amusing anecdotes and who gives so MUCH of herself to all of the Chicks on Lit as our unofficial Ambassador of goodwill and good cheer. I can think of no blogger who does more to "aim to find and be friends."
2- Jo, whose "Diggin Around" blog is the most faithfully updated blog I know of. I feel like I've gotten to know a lot about Jo by reading her blog every week -- and there is always something interesting to read.
3-Arte-e-faque, who has several blogs but whose artistic and often humorous images on her Altered Yesterdays blog always impress me with their creative nod to looking at life through rose-colored glasses.
