Liebster Award? Ah Shucks!

I was recently nominated for the Liebster award.  What is the “Liebster Blog Award?”It’s an award that was reputedly started in Germany in order to give smaller bloggers recognition for their hard work. You receive this award from a fellow blogger that feels your blog is both worthy & important to them. (source)  I was nominated by Yanic at Family, Faith, Food and Fabric. Her blog is a lovely and peaceful place to go, and I enjoy reading her updates on life, family and the delicious recipes she creates.

Here are the rules that those who are nominated are to follow:

  • Write a post thanking the person that nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions this person gives you.
  • Write down 11 random facts about yourself.
  • Nominate 11 new blogs (with less than 1000 followers) you think deserve the attention. This is meant as a way for them to get known and hopefully get new readers!
  • Inform the blogger you’ve nominated them.
  • Give them 11 questions to answer.

Here are the questions I am to answer today:

  1. What is your favorite thing about your favorite season? I love two seasons:  fall and spring.  Both are warm with a little chill in the air and I feel a sense of ease in my life being outside all the time.  Love the warmth inward and outward.
  2. What is your favorite ingredient to cook with? Garlic!
  3. Besides your family and pets, what would be the one thing you would grab running out of your house if it was on fire? Photographs and Bible.
  4. If you could take up any hobby/sport, what would it be?  I would love to take up skiing.  I have done it, but I would like to do it more regularly.
  5. What song could you always listen to without fear of getting fed up with? Lumineers Stubborn Love
  6. What was/is your favorite subject in school? Love science!
  7. What other languages (besides English) do you speak?  I know a little German.
  8. What does “heaven” mean to you? Peace and Love
  9. Beach or Mountains? (and why)  Beach and mountains together.
  10. Tea or Coffee? Tea
  11. What is your biggest regret?  Not quitting my job sooner after the adoption process.
