all you need is love. and chocolate. and wine.

I got this gem from Karen at For the Love of Pete. It is a delight to have someone like you, and I enjoy Karen's blog because 1) it has a very cute cartoon version of her in the banner (even if she does have a crazy Mac laptop) and 2) she has a terrific girlfriend/neighbor voice that comes through in all of her posts; I wish I could pop over to her house for a cocktail every afternoon once in awhile.

Rules of the award: SHARE THE LOVE!!!
Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog. **All I ask is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipient to do the same**

People I love, and why:

Lisa at Mama Milton ~ She is a real-life best friend with wonderful kids the same age as mine and a temperament to calm the most ferocious PTA harpy drunken neighbor individual one might encounter. Plus she's hilarious and is willing to watch movies with unhappy endings.

Jimmie at Short Bus to Hell ~ Another real-life friend whom I've known since the Dark Ages college, with a wonderful [hot] partner and delightfully prissy dog. He is also hilarious (except when making fun of my age and/or my status as a Breeder), though prone to watching very gay movies.

Moxy Jane at Spiral Bound ~ A Texan (how could that possibly be a bad thing? Wait, don't answer...), a super smartypants in the best possible way, a brilliant photographer with a sharp eye and equally sharp tongue.

LarryG at Yesterday, Today, Forever ~ This dude leaves the most thoughtful comments, writes lovely & insightful poetry, takes remarkable photos, AND rides a Harley. While parenting. That's talent, people.

So there you go; that's a third of all you need.
