Liebster Award

So I know it has been a while since I've posted anything, but that's because John and I went to Europe for most of September. I can't wait to post pictures and details about our whole trip. Hopefully I will get to it soon.

In the mean time I've been  nominated for a Liebster Award for newish/up and coming Bloggers who have less than 200 followers! I am so honored and surprised! Jen from Unscripted has nominated me. Thank you so much.

The idea is that people win the award and pass it on to other Bloggers who are in the same boat. The rules are:

  • Each person tagged must post 11 things about themselves.
  • They must also answer the 11 questions the tagger has set for them.
  • They must create 11 more questions to ask bloggers they have decided to tag.
  • They must then choose 11 bloggers to tag with less than 200 followers.
  • These lucky bloggers must be told.
  • There are no tag backs.
