The Liebster Award

Thank you to my sweet cousin, Candi, over at Did I Really Sign Up For This, for nominating me for the Liebster Award!  So sorry it has taken so long to "do my part" but here it is!  And it was fun.  And thank you for being my biggest fan!

This award is given to up & coming bloggers with less than 200 followers.  Liebster is German and means sweetest, kind, lovely, endearing, and welcome.

How it works:

  • Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
  • Answer questions that the tagger sets for you and then create 11 questions for the bloggers that you tag.
  • Choose up to 11 bloggers and link them to your post
  • Go to their page & tell them 
  • No tag backs :)
  • And lastly, have fun!!

11 Things about myself...

1.) I really, really, really enjoy sushi... I think I could eat it every day.

2.) Garden grown tomatoes are totally my favorite vegetable.
3.) I HATE how food is grown, processed, and mass produced in this country.  Really.  It makes me VERY ANGRY.
4.) I do what I can to make a difference where I can.  I know remind myself daily I can't save the world.  But I try and do my part. Whether it is recycling, reusing, growing a garden (small/tiny one), advocating for children, hosting, adopting, not eating certain things (like VEAL, beef *unless free range/grass fed and hormone free, and pork), turning off ceiling fans when I leave the room and shutting the computer down at night to save power... I try, where I can, without becoming a total freak!
5.) I LOVE LOVE LOVE shopping at consignment and thrift stores.  I could care less about labels and abhor the thought of paying someone our hard earned money for their name and to pay for all their extra homes and private jets!
6.) I often see the world in pictures.  Seriously.  My mind totally frames certain things I see and that has led to my love for photography.  Oh yeah... I LOVE to take pictures.
7.) My hope and desire, deep desire, is to live for the LORD and be a reflection of His love and glory.  I am so very thankful for His presence in my life and how He reveals Himself to me and draws me closer.
8.) I am a hair nightmare.  I have liked my hair... maybe on three occasions.  I am not sure why... but it is so.
