And the winner is ...

I was filled with Joy when I opened my email to discover something that made my day, actually, it made my week ~ a Leibster Award.
The Liebster Blog award originated in Germany, “Liebster” meaning favorite or dearest, to showcase bloggers with fewer than 200 followers

The first requirement of receiving this award is to show gratitude to the blogger who nominated you and link back to them.

So, here goes a big thank you to my friend, Noami, who has inspired so many people by sharing her words and beautiful photography.  Her blog, Poetic Aperture, is a about living an authentic and caring life.  Please stop by and visit with her.
After the music cuts off the “Thank you” speech to the Nominator, the second responsibility of the recipient is to copy and past the Liebster Award. 

Next, it’s time to nominate 5 other bloggers (who have less than 200 viewers) to pass this award onto.  This is a tough one, only because there are so many amazing bloggers I know.
The envelope(s), please.

Jenilyn who can warm anyone’s heart with her beautiful energy. She writes at holisticfertilityguide.
Loriportka who shares gratitude, truth, and beautiful art.
Fromchaoscomeshappiness is where Leanne spreads her wings, shares her thoughts and art, and lives her dreams.

Painted Path is real, raw, and inspirational. 

Lisa Dalke’s beautiful art is a reflection of who she is, at the very moment. You can visit her at artingwithlisa 

And, finally, tell your readers ten random facts about you.

Here are a few facts you may not know about me. Or, maybe you do.

I love Chocolate. I could eat it every day.

People who know me think I’m really organized.  It is so untrue.

It takes me a really long time to do most things (especially, making decisions).

 I’ve been writing poetry for as long as I can remember.

I don’t really have a favorite color.  I love most of them.

I am going to publish a book.

I have the most amazing family in the world.

I wish I did not change my major from Psychology to Journalism.  To this day, I wish to be a counselor, social worker, or therapist.  I know I would be a great one!

I am working on letting go of some of my missed opportunities.

I still believe in Magic.


  1. Well-deserved! What is your book going to be about? :)
