Liebster Award!

I started this blog and I probably had no idea as to what community I was getting myself into. I’ve been so impressed and pleasantly surprised to receive a nice warm welcome from so many fellow bloggers, it is so nice to know that there are so may open arms and helping hands happy to assist and/or support each other. I am really happy that I joined this community and now I am even more motivated than before in continuing this journey as a blogger.

Last Tuesday a receive a tweet letting me know that there was an award for me, "for me?", yes, the “Liebster Award”, our very first award, Awesome, it came directly from the hands of my fellow blogger Kelly at Exceptionalistic, if you have not visited her, please do so, she is great and you are for sure to find many very interesting posts at her site.

Everybody likes Awards.
The Liebster Award

If you don't know what is the Liebster Award, here's the description of it, taken directly from Kelly's site:

The Liebster Blog Award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. The Meaning; Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome.

My understanding of this award is that it is a way of saying thank you, and at the same time giving back to the blogger community, with no more details I would say let's get right to it.
