Early Tuesday morning, while still on vacation and on the road, I received this awesome news, that thehappiestpixel nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award.

I knew, that I will not be able to do a post before the weekend and do justice to this highly bestowed honor, but just had to respond immediately to thank Sílvia, and then wrote the following:
Oh my goodness, I am over the moon! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kindness and this nomination. I accept as it’s an honor and ….. Words escape me to continue.
Today, I am still on cloud-9 and I would like to start by saying thanksto thehappiestpixel, Sílvia, who has nominated me.
