I have received a blog award!!  Me!! Well, my blog, but me!!! 

A Liebster award, from my sweet friend Ruby over at Fuchsia Vision  (linky link here Fuchsia Vision )

Ruby is one who always shares words of encouragement on every post, no matter what... Just knowing one person reads this blog of their own volition (no payments, no relative obligation!!) makes me super happy, but to be nominated for an award!!!

Well...ain't that the berries!!!

I hadn't heard of a Liebster award but it turns out it's given amongst bloggers to those sites that have less than 200 followers.  Yeah, I'm about 189 shy of that, so no worries there...

It does come with a to-do list:

  1. Link back to the person who gave it to you.  Check!
  2. Post the award on your blog for all to see!  Check!
  3. Give the award to 5 of your favorite bloggers (with 200 followers or less).  Double check!!
  4. Leave a comment on your chosen blogs to let them know that they have been given the Liebster Blog award (will be done)
My five favorites:

1.)  My Scrappy Life  - Eliz Gardner.  I love her writing. And her scrapbooking style...

2.) Sisters and Stories - Man, these ladies.... they make me wish my sister and I were closer.  But also remind me to be grateful for the girls in my life whom I love like sisters!!

3.) Unfabulousness - While we are friends in the real world, I love how Jo writes.  When I read her blog, it's like I'm in her head...and I'm feeling the exact way she's feeling at that moment.  

4.) Inspiration Strikes - Don't go here if you're easily offended.  She's mouthy, opinionated...and one of my favorite bloggers ever.  She says exactly what she's thinking...about everything...and in a trashy "you-kiss-your-mama-with-that-mouth??" kind of way, and I love it. 

and finally...

5.) Life at the Gables - If I'm being honest... I love how Liz writes, but what I really love about her blog:  I read every word to myself in a Scottish accent.  Seriously.

  So thank you, Ruby, for thinking of me.   And for the ladies who are receiving this award -- Thanks for being such amazing writers in your own individual ways. You all give me something to look forward to each week (-ish, if you update like I do!!)

Thanks for the award! I'm really bad at passing these on, but I am sure I can think of a few people who would appreciate it.

Thanks as well for the kind words, and the fair warning (my blog is one of the reasons I'm glad neither of my grandmothers have the internet!)

Glad that you enjoyed your award. And your words when you say - Just knowing one person reads this blog of their own volition (no payments, no relative obligation!!) makes me super happy - I ditto that. I just did not have words to say it. You said it wonderfully. Have a blessed time ahead.
