Liebster Award

Thank you so much to 
Sara @ Flower Land and Kindra @ Trying to be Who I Am and Kaylynn @ Colb, Kay and T.Rae
for nominating me for this award.

What is the Liebster Award? 

The Liebster Award's origins are pretty much a mystery. Bloggers nominate other bloggers that have 200 or less followers. “Liebster” is German for “favorite,” so this is kind of like the “favorite blog award.” It's basically a "Hey, that's a sweet little blog you've got there. Here's an award!" You can't just accept the award. You have to play by the (ever changing) rules and pay it forward. Then you can put the award on your blog for all to see. 

Rules of the Liebster Award: 

1. List 11 facts about yourself. 
2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
3. Ask 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate for the award.
4. Choose 11 bloggers with 200 or less followers to nominate. 
5. Go to each bloggers page and let them know about the award.
