Liebster Award



I wonder if she thought I forgot? 



A wonderful homeschool mommy friend and fellow blogger over at Our Side of the Mountain nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award recently and it’s taken me aaaaages to share!



But better late than never.  Right?



The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture on my page and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.)



So with no further ado…
