The sweet Penny over at Penny's Thoughts bestowed me with my very first award! I have to be honest, I didn't know what it meant so I looked it up and it means "proximity", nearness, or kindred by birth. Cool! And here's a better explanation found by Miss Ruggy 13:
The blogs who receive the Proximidade Award invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. 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 eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
