The Liebster Blog Award~

Imagine my surprise the other day when I received a very sweet email from Laura of Elegant Nest, telling me she had nominated ME for the Liebster Award.  I felt so honored to be among the five wonderful new bloggers Laura selected, Elizabeth-The Little Black Door, Erin-The Great Indoors, Laura-Cookie Crumbs & Sawdust, and Gina-A Sense of Design.

It's funny, Laura stated the exact thing I would say about her.  We seem to follow a lot of the same blogs, and usually end up commenting at about the exact same time.  And, she usually takes the words right out of my mouth.  I know we would be instant BFFs if she lived close by. However, she is on the West coast and I am on the East coast.  But, we have this wonderful thing called blogging to keep us connected!

The Liebster Blog Award promotes blogs with less than 200 followers, as a way to get their names out there.  Liebster means, 'beloved or dearest', but it can also mean 'favorite'.

As a Liebster award recipient, I now have the pleasure of passing the award on to five other up and coming bloggers.

In order to accept this award, the recipient must do the following:

1. Thank the person that presented the award.

2. Link back to that person(s) blog.

3. Copy and Paste the award to your blog.

4. Present the award to 5 bloggers with less than 200 followers (bloggers who you think deserve this special recognition).

5. Let those deserving bloggers know by leaving them a comment, or emailing them.

My Fab New  Five:

All of these ladies are known to leave the sweetest, sometimes very heartfelt commments.  I have found most follow a lot of the same blogs I do, so we instantly have a lot in common!  I really couldn't think of a more deserving group.  They are all so geniune.

Amy-Fresh and Fancy

Tara-The Silver Lining

Isaiah 55: 8-9  (one of my favorite verses by the way!)

Amanda-Small Home Big Start

Kristin-The O.C.D. Life  (okay, I admit, being a wee bit OCD and a perfectionist, I was hooked!)

I can't thank Laura enough for giving me this award, and the opportunity to introduce five more talented bloggers to my readers.

The world of blogging has been such a tremendous support to me.  I have made so many wonderful friends along the way, and I thank each of you for taking the time out of your day to stop in and comment.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!
