Liebster Award —–my first blogging award!


The Liebster Award comes to me from Danica at Living A Beautiful Life ( Thank you very much!

I was delighted to be awarded this Liebster Award. My first blogging award!

Please take a moment to check out Danica’s blog. It’s a refreshing look at life in all its glorious randomness.

What is the Liebster Award?

The word “liebster” (originating in German) has several definitions:  dearest, sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued.  In the current context, this award recognizes bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers.
