Me + Liebster Award = Happy!

by - Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Yesterday I found out that the lovely Dana from Five30Three had nominated me for the Liebster award. I wasn't sure what this fabulous award might be, but I can tell you that I was excited to see that someone recognized me and my blog. Thanks to Dana, you made my day! Know what else made my day? My son told me that I'm a cute little mommy. Yeah, true story!

So what is the Liebster award
Well, there is no definitive answer to that in any dictionary and vague descriptions in a google search. I've compiled that it's an award that you are given by someone else that says, "Hey, I like your blog and keep up the great work you're doing." It's a great way to discover new blogs and share the love.

Here's how it works once given a Liebster Award:
1.  Post the award on your blog.
Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
Choose 5 other blogs deserving of the Liebster.
List the bloggers you gave the award to with links back to their sites.
Leave a comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.

So now that we've gotten that all out of the way, 
I'd like to give the Liebster Award to:
  1. Becky of Ballistic Gypsy.
  2. Maddie of Madalynne.
  3. Amy of This heArt of mine.
  4. Jessy of Serendipitous Things.
  5. Silke of Creative Clutters.
 You  know, a good blog will make life more interesting. 
They inspire you to do something differently and in turn it makes your life a bit more fabulous. 
Don't you agree? 
Check out these ladies and show them some love.
