Can You Find The Word In The Rocks? (And A Word To Dianne...Followed By An Award!)

My sweet bloggy buddy, Dianne, at the Deez Dayz blog, recently went to Knysna in her home land of South Africa, and she took this picture that you see below.

Dianne spelled out a word in the rocks along the rocky beach. Can you find it? If so, leave the answer in my comments section.

I'll give you a little quote as a "hint."

"Words have meaning and names have power." ~Author Unknown

I would also like to mention, that even though Dianne was born and raised in South Africa, as you are reading this post, she is now officially living in the United Kingdom. She and her lovely family will now be calling the United Kingdom home. So, "Hi, Dianne! Congratulations, sweet lady! I am SO excited for you, Hilmar, and Miss P. I look forward to hearing all about life in your new home, and one day visiting you in person, of course." ;)

I'm just saying.

"Where thou art-that-is Home." ~Emily Dickinson

Ag shame, my skattie!

Now, last but not least, I have received a special award from my bloggy friend Mari at the Mari's Morning Room blog.

It is the PROXIMITY award.

Isn't it pretty?

What this award encompasses is as follows:
“This blog invests and believes 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.”

Mari, thank you so much for thinking of me for this award. I really appreciate you, sweet friend!

Now, it's my turn to pass this award along to eight two bloggy friends. Which, is NO easy task, but I will. I have enjoyed getting to know all of my blogging friends this year, and I adore each and every one of them. But for this award, I would like to pass it to my two newest friends in Blog Land. But, just between you and me, if I am a regular at your place, please feel free to take this award too. Really, it's okay. Just take it. I want all of you to have it. Seriously. ;)

And like Mari, I am not going to tell you anything about these two lovely ladies, because I want you to go to their blogs and take a peek at them for yourselves.

So, without further ado, I am passing this award along to the following ladies:

Nikowa at Knowledge House Academy

Michelle at Lovin' Life

Nikowa and Michelle, I have really enjoyed getting to know both of you here in Blog Land, so please accept this award from me.

And to the rest of you, remember, take the award for yourself and stop by Lovin' Life and Knowledge House Academy and show both of these ladies some love!;)

Ag Shame, you are too sweet. That is now an unexpected surprise, I had no idea you would feature this on your blog. In fact it will get a doulbe feature because I am going to post about the name in the sand and rocks in my posts about our trip, which I will be posting this eveing so you can still read the first part today btw.

phew, did you get all that?

Now what did the guy say about the thing, I have been wondering...

Michelle said...

Firstly, let's see if I'm correct in spotting your name in the rocks??

Secondly, a HUGE thank you for the lovely award. That was so sweet of you Amy *sigh*. This is my first blog award and I will proudly display it on my blog :) You are too sweet of a person. I told my husband the other day when he asked how my day was that "I've been emailing my new bloggy friend back and forth all day, *seemed* like I've known her for a long time". Then of course I just had to tell him about my reason for emailing you in the first place...*you know who's* cyber crush LOL!

Anywho, have a very blessed weekend my new friend :)

Though I could only see part of it in the rocks...I believe it is your name and then I was relieved when I read that others thought the same:) Congratulations on the award and how are you doing these days?

Laura said...
