Thanks so much for the honor of being nominated! I am not sure how long it will take me to get to this, but I think I want to participate! I google the Liebster award and found it is defined in the following:
The Liebster award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. What is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
That makes me so happy that you feel this way about my blog! I was hoping it would feel that way to others...You are also All that!
thanks so much,
