Liebster Blog Award
A huge thank you goes out to the wonderful & talented Sandra Hershenson for awarding me the Liebster Blog Award!!
Liebster is a German word meaning dearest, and the award is given to up-and-coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.
The origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear but the general consensus is that it originated in Germany, Liebster meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers. Upon accepting the award the recipient must then pass it on to five more blogs of note.
If you receive the award, you should:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Hope that the people you’ve sent the award to forward it to their five favourite bloggers and keep it going!
This is the nice side of a chain letter. It’s always good to be appreciated and too often we are all quick to criticise and slow to praise. So here are some virtual pats on the back to five of my favourite bloggers.

1. Sandra Hershenson a special friend and the author of a fantastic book that we are doing together!
