Today I thought I would write about how flattered and excited I am about receiving 2 nominations for the Liebster Award! Not just one but two!! I only started blogging a couple of months ago just after the birth of my daughter and honestly, so far, has been the best thing I’ve done or myself in a while.
I’ve always found solice in journalling but it was always to myself, When I would look back on some good old fashioned pen and paper journals, I could see how much I’ve grown and how far I’ve come through my experiences. I wanted to share with someone or some people my story in hopes that they find comfort in knowing I’m here alongside of them experiencing the same things, or at least find entertainment or enjoyment in my story 🙂
This morning I woke to a notification on my phone from WordPress and as usual I’m super excited to get notifications because it tells me people are reading my posts and it gives me a chance to find new bloggers in this WordPress Community! I find that this notification is a Liebster Award nomination from the lovely Paige of The Pages of Paige. I accept this nomination whole-heartedly! Paige I want to thank you for your support as my journey through blogging continues and I hope I can provide you with the same support in return!
The other nomination was from another favourite blogger of mine AKCaggiano, another big thank you for the nomination! Another supporter of my blog and I love keeping up to date with your life and stalkerish as that may sound!
My favourite Blog
I recommend that you check out these bloggers because they are so real and just talk about anything and everything that relates to their every day lives and I really enjoy reading what they have to share. I have even picked up some pretty good ideas from all 3 of them about how I can spend my day or at least nod my head saying “yep you just explained my whole day”. These bloggers inspire me to write consistently and truthfully, I know what I wanted out of blogging and I seem to have gotten so uch more out of it because of these guys! I can’t get enough of what they have to say and it sure is entertaining too especially leading up to Christmas where Blogmas posts have begun and the truth of how difficult Christmas can be. I’ve linked here below a few of many posts I enjoy reading and I hope that you all enjoy them as much as I do!

What is a Liebster Award, you ask?
The Liebster Award is an award that exists only on the internet and is given to bloggers by other bloggers, whose work they find interesting, to motivate them and promote them as well. The earliest case of the award goes as far back as 2011. Liebster in German means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
