Liebster Award

I was nominated for the Liebster award by the wonderful Heather Ann @ Every girl like me. I am extremely honored to have been nominated and I can not tell how wonderful it feels.  It's great to have been given this award. :)

To those of you who don't know what the Liebster award is, look no further. It is given to up and coming bloggers who have under 200 followers, in order to create new connections and bring attention to growing their blogs. (Fun right!) And for those who know German, I do believe that Liebster means dearest, beloved, or favorite. 
The rules are simple:
1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
2. Write 11 facts about yourself.
3. Answer the 11 questions from the person who nominated you.
4. Nominate 11 blogs with 200 or less flowers. Notify them. ( You cannot nominate the person who nominated you)
5. Create 11 questions for those bloggers you've nominated to answer.
