Wow! A Liebster Award!

What is a Liebster you're wondering?
The Liebster award is a blogger to blogger award given to new bloggers, or bloggers with less than 200 readers. The word means "dearest" in German.
This award has no judges or special prizes, just encouragement--someone saying, "We see You," and, "Keep up the good work." 
If you receive the award, you answer 11 questions assigned to you.  Then you create 11 questions of your own and follow and nominate 11 new bloggers with less than 200 readers. Then link back to the blog who nominated you when you post your nominations.

I had so much fun picking out 
11 new blogs to nominate!!!!
I am honored to be nominated by two different new bloggers  --
