I was nominated a few days ago by Caroline @ Foodieaffairnetwork for The Liebster Award. I’d like to thank her for thinking of me. She has an awesome blog, so please check it out! I was very excited to receive an award and the rules are fun!
What is the Liebster Award?
“Liebster” is a German word meaning beloved, dearest, sweetheart, or darling.
For bloggers, the Liebster Award is an online recognition given by other bloggers to new bloggers for enjoying or appreciating their work. It highlights up and coming blogs.
Once nominated, a blogger is asked to answer 11 questions provided by the nominating blogger. They are then expected to nominate 11 other favorite new bloggers and come up with a list of 11 new questions for those nominees.
- Acknowledge the blog who nominated you and display the award.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger gives you.
- Nominate 11 blogs.
- Notify those blogs of the nomination.
- Give them 11 questions to answer.
My Q&A of 11 questions from Caroline and few from the blogger that nominated her.
1. What are you most afraid of and why?
I’m most afraid of dying before my kids are grown. I want to be here to raise them and to be the best mother I can be for them.
2. What is your most important possession?
My family- if you consider that a possession.
3. How do you handle stress?
When I’m stressed I like to listen to music, read, and exercise.
4. Are you a city mouse or a country mouse?
Definitely a country mouse. I used to live in the city and moved to the country 9 years ago. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I love being in nature and there’s no place I’d rather live.
5. What is your Superpower?
I don’t know if I really have a superpower, but I’m going to say “getting the job done.” I feel like I’m a pretty hard worker and like to get things done.
6. Define Love in five words.
Extraordinary feeling of profound affection.
7. What’s the greatest lesson that you have learned from your life?
To say “oh well” and let stuff roll off my back. I’m still working on it… 🙂
8. Do you have a pet?
I have many pets, some are inside and some are outside. We have many outdoor cats including 12 baby kittens which will be leaving to go to their new homes soon. My indoor pets are my collies.
9. How do you feel about your birthday?
I used to be excited about my birthday when I was a child. I loved them. Sadly, I don’t feel like that anymore. In fact, I flat out don’t like my birthday. I’m pushing forty this year…
10. Where is your favorite place to be?
This is hard. I love to be surrounded by my kids, but when it’s time for myself, I want to be in my bedroom listening to music or reading. I enjoy sitting outside and reading as well. Any of these are perfect…
11. When is the last time you stopped to feel the Earth under your bare feet?
Yesterday while throwing Frisbee with my collies.
I nominate: There’s no pressure to participate if you don’t want to. Just know that I enjoy your blog and want others to see you!
