I won an award? A Liebster Blog Award? I accept!

Yay! As if having my blog isn’t already awesome (sound familiar?), now I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Blog Award by the amazing Sarah at Journeys of the Zoo! Check out the nomination here.

You may be asking yourself, what the heck is a Liebster Blog Award? Well, let’s break it down…Liebster in German means many wonderful things such as sweetheart, dearest, pleasant, kind, and LOVELY! Yep, Sarah thinks I’m lovely and not just because of my blog namesake!  So as a result, the Liebster Blog Award is given to those who embody the meaning and are newbies to the blogosphere.

It wouldn’t be award without a set of rules – and no, no one in a suit from PriceWaterhouseCoopers is going to appear with a sealed envelope haha, nor will I be accepting a trophy, but I do have this cute lil badge to show off! liebster blog award badgeAnyhoo, back to the rules, I got a little sidetracked in my excitement!  The rules are fun and simple.  As I’ve researched the award, I see the rules aren’t set in stone and vary from blog to blog, year to year; however, I was nominated by Sarah, therefore I shall comply with Sarah’s rules!
