an award!! :)


Oh wow!  My friend Anne at Strawberry Monkey Files gave me my first ever blog award.  :)  Anne writes about her adventures of a homeschooling mom, her crafting, and just life in general.  We love to watch her Rachel grow, and of course it helps that at our house Rachel is a very favorite playmate!  Sadly, playdates with Rachel and her beautiful mom Anne are few and far between…

Anyway, the Liebster Award is for blogs with less than 200 followers (yes, I definitely qualify!).  It is given with the hope that the blog will continue to grow and find more friends and followers.  "Liebster" is a German word that means "dearest" or "beloved" and also can mean "favorite."

So, the idea is to bring attention to your favorite blogs with less than 200 followers. Since I received this award, I now get to pass it on to five of my own favorite bloggers.  I hope that you will check them out -

Here are the rules for Liebster Award recipients:

  1. You can thank the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
  2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
  3. Post the award on your blog.  (You can save the image from this post and the upload it to your blog).
  4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the Blogshare - other bloggers.
  5. Finally, have FUN and enjoy spreading the love! :)

And here are my five picks for the Liebster Award:

  1. Amanda, at …”Brackish and Incandescent”…
  2. Elaine, at Friday is Pizza, Monday is Soup
  3. Kelli, at Waiting for Sprout…and now for XiaoMei
  4. Jana, at From Jesus’ Lips to My Ear
  5. Kari, at Keeping up with the Colleges
  6. Laura, at Whimsical-Beauty

Okay, so I clearly can’t count!  I couldn’t leave just one of these favorites off…as a matter of fact, I could probably add another dozen or so to my list!  But we’ll stop here for now…

Enjoy some blog-hopping this rainy afternoon. 


  1. Wow, Thank you! And congratulations!!!

  2. I hope that in your visit today, you saw the official thank you and the link back to your blog. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh, you are so sweet Jennifer. Glad you liked your blog award - Rachel is super excited to see the boy in a couple of days.
