The Liebster Award

How awesome is this?!? I have been away for a few weeks due to my stressy doctoral program, (Did I ever mention that I hate APA?!?) lo and behold I found a nomination for the Liebster Award in my inbox :). Wow!! How cool is that???

First off, I want to thank Epic Mommy Adventures  for nominating me!

What's the Liebster Award? This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers. There are certain criteria that must be met in order to continue sharing this award with other bloggers. It's sort of a fun chain letter that helps bloggers connect, discover new blogs, and support one another because blogging is tough business.
