a tag and an award

The lovely Angela gave me Neno's Award:The goals of this award are: 1)As a dedication for those who love blogging and love to encourage friendships through blogging. 2)To seek the reasons why we all love blogging. 3)Put the award in one post as soon as you receive it. 4)Don't forget to mention the person who gives you the award. 5)Answer the awards question by writing the reason why you love blogging. 6)Tag and distribute the award to as many people as you like. 7)Don't forget to notify the award receivers and put their links in your post.

Thank you dear! Why do I love blogging? 1) I have "met" so many wonderful people as a result of this blog and have made some good friends from it. 2) It is a welcome distraction from my job and hectic work schedule. 3) I have discovered many new companies/products as a result of blogging. (Blogging: good for you, bad for your wallet.)

Say something to the person/s who tagged you. Megs, you are one of my absolute favorite bloggers and I hope to one day shop/drink with you. Not necessarily in that order.

What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own? My Yeshiva girls ring that I got from Hadaya when I was in Israel. He custom-makes the rings to say whatever you want on them. Mine says "it is a great mitzvah to always be happy" on it in Hebrew on the outside, and the inside has the Jerusalem skyline and my Hebrew name/middle name, Rachel, on it in Hebrew. There isn't another ring exactly like this anywhere in the world, and every time I wear it I think of my Birthright trip to Israel and of me and my friend walking around the Old City trying to find the store.
