The Liebster Award-I Nominate. . .

Yesterday, I received an email that one of my favorite bloggers (not an ounce of exaggeration here) nominated me for a Liebster Award.  Samm is a friend of a friend (that I have yet to meet in person-let's change this!!) and she has been a supporter of my blog since it's very rocky early days and I just have to say that I love her blog. Sam's posts and images always leaving me feeling inspired, and that's the point, right?

I'm assuming that you don't know what that is, and I didn't either until I found myself the grateful recipient of it! The Liebster is an award that is given to new bloggers, the criteria states that you must have less than 200 (or maybe 3000) followers. Well, I'll let you know right now that once I hit 200 followers, I'll be having a huge party to celebrate! Regardless, this award is a way to recognize fellow bloggers that you want everyone to know and love. I will say this, I'm a bit sad because I can't really nominate Sam again, or Meredith (because Sam got to her first), but fear not, I have a couple awesome blogs/friends to share with you at the bottom.

I can't tell  you how happy this small recognition makes me, especially to find out that I was nominated on day where I posted content that I was nervous to share with the world. Thanks Sam, and thanks to all the bloggers out there just sharing what they love! P.S. I'm really grateful because I didn't have a post prepped for today!

I'll be following the same rules as Sam:

  • Write a blog post accepting this award, while thanking and linking to the person that nominated you.
  • Write 11 facts about yourself.
  • Answer the 11 questions written by the person who nominated you.
  • Write your own 11 questions
  • Tag 5-11 upcoming bloggers (I'll be tagging 2ish)

11 Facts About Me

  3. I cannot whistle-I just can't.
  4. I am deathly afraid of splinters and anything that could become lodged under my skin (I'm looking at you, glass)!

  6. My husband and I were secretly married at the Paramus courthouse 1 year before our wedding-I've never before acknowledged this fact publicly.
