Liebster Blog Award

I was pretty excited yesterday when I found out that I had been nominated for a blog award, by my fellow coffee mug swap buddy, Abbie @The Envelope Keeper:

Liebster is a German word for "favorite" and this award is meant to recognize your favorite blogs that have less than 200 followers. In all my Google searching, I can't (for the life of me) figure out who started this award, but it's been spreading...almost like a chain email...for a long time now.

When you receive the Liebster award, you are supposed to do the following:
  • Post the award on your blog
  • Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award (by linking back to her/him)
  • Choose five up-and-coming blogs, that have less then 200 followers
  • List those five blogs you gave the award to, with links to their sites, and make sure they know that then were nominated (so that they can continue spreading the award), via commenting on their blog, Facebook or Twitter
My Liebster Blog award winners are...

*Bhrett @Lost in Relocation - a fellow knitter (like me), who has great Monday Inspiration posts, just opened up a new shop and craves adventure & peace in her life!

*Nina & good food. - this girl is fabulous! She is a regular weekly vlogger linking up for Stop & Smell the Roses and her passion for food will blow you away. She and I also laugh because we basically switched spots...I'm from the Midwest (IL) and moved to Charlotte, and she is from Charlotte and moved to the Midwest (IL)! :)

*Leah @Living Life as a Godly Woman - this girl not only discusses being a woman of God and how she puts God in her marriage, but she has to be one of the thriftiest people I know/follow. She finds the coolest things at thrift stores and yard sales, and for super cheap...and then transforms them into something amazing for the home. Check out this old trunk makeover, it's one of my favorites!

*April @a little of this and that - I don't even remember how I came across April's blog, but I know it was recently and it was because of her blog post about Wilmington, NC (I absolutely love that place). She writes about a lot of different things - fashion, decorating, life. Her fashion staples are cardigans & ballet, mine too, I'm thinking we should be best friends! ;)

*Ashley @Any Lovely Thing - can I just say, this girl's eye for photography, food, entertaining, and fashion will amaze you! She is always dressed "to the nines" (see here) and really knows how to throw a party (and see here)!

Join me in checking out these ladies' blogs - and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Thanks again Abbie for nominating me, it's my 1st blog award! And here's hoping that everyone continues to spread the award to even more fellow bloggers.
