Change of Plans…I’ve been given The Liebster Award

I was ready to do my blog post today when I noticed I was nominated for an award!  I know!!!  It’s crazy!  LOL  I’m very honored to have been nominated for this or any award for that matter!

The award I was nominated for is the Liebster Award.  From what I have read it is given to blogs that have less than 1,000 followers to help promote and support them.

  1. You are so kind to include me I do appreciate this award. I have been blogging since about 2009 as I was on Blogger before, then I moved to wordpress and I think I lost allot of followers when my PC broke and I lost all my posts for the blog, and now I am back again. Thank you so much.
