The Liebster Award

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

To keep this award going and pass it along to other new deserving blogs, the recipient must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have really stood out in the crowd.

I recieved this award through an interweb friend, Cari. I met her a few years ago on theknot.com. We got married in the same month and year and connected on many levels during the process. I hope to meet her someday, especially since she lives so close to where Josh and I are originally from (up in the Pittsburgh area).

The rules for the Liebster Award are: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. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

I don't have 5 active bloggers that I follow, I do have 4 though. I'm just too new right now, but hopefully I can come back and add someone in the near future.

1. Rachael - Row Merrily : A friend of mine who I orginally met on theknot.com as well. She lives 20 minutes from me though so we have met and even hung out a few times. Her blog is a little bit of everything. Topics include her beautiful daughter, Natalie, her husband, cleaning, and crafts to name a few. It's great fun to follow.

2. Ashley - Oh So Ashley : She's newer to the blogging world as well and I met her on theknot.com too. She's another one I have yet to meet, but I hope to one day. Her blog currently is focusing on the something she's thankful for daily, an appropriate topic for November. It's a great read.

3. Val - This Whole Mommy Thing : This is again another knottie who I have yet to meet. Her blog has been really great to follow through her pregnancy. Josh and I aren't planning on having kids anytime soon, but I hope to one day and it's been a great "heads up". She just had her little bundle of joy too, so I can't wait to see some photos of her bouncing baby boy!

4. Greg - The Life and Times of Greg Jackson : Finally, someone I actually knew before the internet. He graduated at the same high school as me. His blog is rather hilarious and I enjoy his take on things as well as "creative editing". It gives me a good laugh.
5. TBD.

Thanks again, Cari!!
