The Reality and 100% Affidabile (Reliable) Blog Awards

I am overwhelmed that people from all over the world tune in to read the tales from My Sardinian Life. Thank you, World! When I started this blog, two years ago, it was with the sole intention to share my photos and daily life with my family and friends who are scattered all over the globe. It was also an outlet to try on my writer’s voice and publish some of the songs and poetry that I’d kept locked up tight.

I am humbled, grateful and ecstatic to have recently received two fantastic blogging awards from Marito alla Parmigina. He’s a blogger, husband and an amazing cook. Check out this recipe – Panna Cotta all’Orzo – Italian Cooked Cream with Barley. This desert looks heavenly, now only if I had the patience to give this recipe a go, possibly one day! Don’t be fooled by the Italian blog name this super blogger translates most of this posts into English! Snaperriffic. Thank you, Marito alla Parmigiana for the following two awards – and my first Italian blog award. Wahoo!

Their latest post about a re-cycling pensioner named Baba is hilarious and makes you think why the smaller countries in the world have just slowly begun to re-cycle.

She is also the host of the popular Weekly Travel Theme photography exhibition where hundreds of bloggers showcase their photography. Check out her awesome post and photography on a random post here. The first photo made me WOW out loud!

He’s an awesome man because he took his daughter to work and made him so proud that he wrote about it and because he’s Canadian, eh!
