I was surprised to find an email that I had been nominated for the Liebster Award!
I was nominated by Michelle at The Heart of Reading, who used the same blog designer, Honey Bunch, that I did!

The Liebster Award is given by bloggers to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. It was created to show new bloggers that they are appreciated and to help spread the word about new blogs. Thanks for the opportunity Michelle! I will answer the questions below! And then below that are the questions for the people I nominated to answer.

The rules:

  • Answer the questions the nominator set for you.
  • Create 11 questions for the people you nominate.
