Liebster means dearest!

Lakshmi from Lakshmi Loves to Shop has generously presented me with a Liebster blog award. Lakshmi and I have recently discovered each other’s blogs and have found we have lots in common. A mutual love of India, both proud mothers of teenage boys, yoga devotees, visitors to Amma’s ashram in India, and both of us have surprised and impressed ourselves by riding Space Mountain, despite being terrified. I love this about blogging. Meeting like-minded people from all over the world. It’s such a pleasure getting to know you Lakshmi!

    Sue Ann!! Chihuahua?? 🙂 lmao you must write a post about THAT experience! Awesome to hear that you’re running again. Yay!!

    • What a town! I expected lots of little dogs wearing sombreros running around on their hind legs to marimba music. The reality was so disappointing – even with the excitement of the brothel.

    Chihuahua is a huge disappointment…it’s even worse now. laughing hard at the pic in my mind of dancing rat sized dogs in sombreros!! Thanks for that!

        The South is a gazillion times better to the abject depravity of the north. It makes up for all that’s not right with country a.k.a the border states of the north 🙂 but I’m sure it was a unique experience.

    Sue Ann I was so touched by your comments…thank you, thank you, thank you 🙂 it has been my joy finding your blog too! It is so lovely to have so much in common…ps my boys will be so impressed on you watching the Walking Dead ~ they love that series 😉 and I love the sound of your turtles.

    • You are very welcome. My son put me on to The Walking Dead. Very addictive! Looking forward to the next instalment. Fighting zombies in a post-apocalyptic world – not everyone’s cup of tea! Must post a photos of the turtles – the easiest pets ever!
