I Feel Special! 5 Liebsters in One Week!

From Google Images 

This post is long overdue and I wanted to acknowledge my wonderful award given to me by 5awesome bloggers: Anyonita Nibbles, The Whimsical Peacock, Sawdust On My Boots, Life with RA is a Pain, and Cayla and Ashley

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.

For some quick and easy rules about the Liesbter Award, please read below:
