How exciting Sandy from Kinder-Gardening has nominated me for a Liebster Award. Thanks Sandy - it has made my day.
I wanted to find out more about this award so of course 'googled' and this come up thanks to 'we loved here' - blog post
"The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. So, what is a Liebster? The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. Isn't that sweet? Blogging is about building a community and it's a great way to connect with other bloggers and help spread the word about newer bloggers/blogs." Ashley and Jason
