Liebster Blog Award: Yippee!

Today as I was deciding what to write about – I received a post from my dear friend Marcia at Inside Journeys.  She said she loved my insightful thoughts on my life, family and grandson and decided to bestow a Liebster Blog award to me. It’s always a treat to be recognized especially by bloggers from across the miles.  Liebster means ‘beloved’ in German and it’s an honor to receive this award from her. Thank you Marcia!

Marcia writes about a place she loves. It’s her home but it’s so much more and when she describes Jamaica, it comes through in her photos, ideas and words. Her blog is all about travel and the photos she posts either take your breath away or make you want to buy a ticket to join her! I hope you take some time to visit her site and say hello!

liebster_blogThe Liebster Blog Award is designed to bring additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 200 followers. If you receive the award, you should link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate five more blogs. Also, don’t forget to let them know that you nominated them.

In blogging as in life, people just seem to connect, despite distance. I connected immediately with these bloggers and try to read their blogs each time they have new posts. Hope you get a chance to check out their blogs.

My top 5 awards:

Cecila Futch at : Cecila writes about issues that cross her path. I think her blog is like mine and it’s as if we were sitting together getting caught up on everything. The weather, photography, travel, the change of seasons, people who matter, and other topics that warm the heart. I hope you visit her blog and read leave a comment or two.

Chittlechattle  at : Kattsby was one of my first online blogger friends. I love to see what surprises will be revealed in her blog on a regular basis. Whether she is showing her photography, collages, and fabrics or sharing something she learned, you will no doubt want to return and visit her.
