I was so excited when I discovered that I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award.

Thank you so much Lindsey from Lipstick & Animal Crackers for nominating me! It feels so nice to have someone recognize my efforts! If you haven’t visited her blog, you should! She has some wonderful ideas!


Liebster Award


I didn’t know much about this award but as I’ve learned more, I think it’s a wonderful idea! Liebster is a German word meaning: sweetest, favorite, dearest, kindest, nicest, lovely, pleasant, valued, etc. What an awesome idea to look for the good around the internet!
