Liebster Award

I am so humbled and honored to be nominated for the Liebster Award by Melissa from Let’s Find Joy. I met Melissa through Instagram and was immediately excited to have found her. One thing that drew me to her was a quote on her About Me page: “My motto for a long time has been I believe in finding joy in this journey called life and that there is always something to smile about–even if you have to google puppy pictures.” What an amazing motto to live by! She is so sweet and her blog is absolutely beautiful, I encourage you all to go check out her blog!

The Liebster Award is an honor given by fellow bloggers to new blogs that have been around for less than two years and have less than 1,000 followers. It helps bloggers connect with other bloggers. Growing connections and making new friends in the blog community not only helps grow your reach, it’s so much fun! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the blogging community I am a part of has overwhelmed me and inspired me and it drives me to keep going every day.
