Giving Thanks ~ The Liebster Award

Thank you to my friend, Ruby, at Girlfriends are Like Shoes for nominating me for the Liebster Award. Many people who are nominated often to not post a response to the nomination on their blog.  I think it's important to write something, even if it's short and sweet, as a way of saying thank you to the one who thought enough of you to award a nomination, but also to help other fellow bloggers who are hoping to grow and develop their blogs by giving them a vote of confidence!
The Liebster Award is an award for new bloggers with less than 200 followers. (or close) It's a great way for bloggers and readers alike to find new and interesting people in our beauty/blogging community! 

There are rules to this award, so without further ado -
- Each person must post eleven things about themselves.
- Answer the eleven questions the tagger has set for you.
- Choose eleven people and tag them in this post.
- Follow the tagger and visit at least three nominees.

Okay, let's get cracking' on these rules!!

First up - 11 Things about myself:
1.  I'm completely in love with my husband.
2.  I'm head over heels for my five ornery boys.
3.  Running keeps me sane.
4.  I'm a big Jane Austen fan.
5.  I love the smell of sheets drying on a clothesline.
6.  Fall is my favorite season.
7.  I can't tolerate people who tell me I'm intolerant.
8.  I think Hendricks Gin is delicious.
9.  I'm terrified of snakes, bears and lions, but mostly snakes.
10.  Adopting a child/children would be a great privilege and joy for me.

  • What is your best blogging tip? Write about what you know and love and stick with it.
