Liebster Award? Qu’est-ce que c’est?


Curve balls. They are important. Curve balls keep is engaged in life and help us grow in new and exciting ways without letting us know how we’re going to grow. Which is why when McKenna over at IHARTEKENNY (stylized, of course) nominated me for a Liebster Award, I was thrown a bit for a loop. 

Long story long: A Libester Award for Blogging is an award-type thing that fellow bloggers give to new noteworthy bloggers with <200 followers. Well shucks, thanks guys!

As a nomin-inner, I have to fulfill my end of the bargain:

  1. List 11 random facts about mysef
  2. Answer 11 questions about that my nominator(s) asked
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers and like to em
  4. Notify the bloggers to tell them JUST how awesome they are and let them know :O)
  5. And ask them 11 questions in return

The beauty of any curve ball is that they can be hit, so here’s my swing: at the very least, you get to learn a little more about who I am!
