  2. Congratulations Kim! You definitely deserve this award because everything you write about, everything you stand for is worth an award and recognition.
    I’m extremely happy seeing my blog in the list of nominees. I cannot promise I will have time for all rules, but I really appreciate this nomination. I haven’t had recently time to post nothing, so, yes, it tough at the moment, too much work! I will see how it goes!
    Have a great week!
