The Liebster Award!

Brandy Toenges from Wonderfully Messy Mom has nominated my blog for the Liebster Award. Her blog has some amazing stuff - Beauty recipes, cleaning recipes, natural remedies & much more! Thank you Brandy, you've made my day! xo

I am so thrilled to be a part of something so exciting as Liebster Award. Such a wonderful way to discover new bloggers. Perhaps my blog is still finding its way to glory, but hey, slow and steady wins the race {or so I have to make myself believe ;) } 

So what is the 'Liebster Blog Award'? The aim is to recognize blogs with fewer than 1000 followers & you think that deserve recognition. As a nominee, I have to list 11 random facts about myself, answer 11 questions that Brandy from Wonderfully Messy Mom has listed on her blog & nominate another set of new bloggers! 

A few Liebster Award rules that nominees need to follow:

1. Thank the blogger who presented you with the Liebster Award and provide a link back to his or her blog.

2. Answer the questions from the nominator, list 11 random facts about yourself, and create 11 questions for your nominees.

3. Present the Liebster Award to several other bloggers who have blogs with 1000 followers or less whom you feel deserve to be noticed. Leave a comment on their blog letting them know they have been nominated or email them.

4. Upload the Liebster Award image to your blog.
