Liebster Blog Awards

Recently my friend Sarah Warren over at The Accidental Okie nominated my blog for a Liebster Award. Liebster is German, it means precious and dear.

The Liebster blog awards are one of the things that makes blogging with friends fun. This award is for up-and-coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.  After Sarah nominated me, I had to write a blog post telling 11 things about me and answering 11 questions from Sarah.  Next, I got to nominate a few of my favorite bloggers and ask them 11 questions as well. I love it that this process is all about networking smaller blogs that may not have the exposure of the biggies.

Thanks Sarah for your dear heart, your nomination is so sweet! Everyone needs to check out your amazing blog as well. You like me, you really like me!
