The Liebster Award aka an awesome way to start my week!

What better way to start the week than with an award? Thanks to the lovely Kanalt at Well Planned Life, that is exactly what I am doing!

Long time readers may know that I was one of the lucky recipients of the Versitile Bloggers Award back in November, which I was uber-psyched about. So now that I've been given another award by a blogger I so very much admire, I'm pretty much over the moon. But what is this award, anyway?

It’s the Liebster Award, a German word that means dearest, beloved, or favorite. It’s given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers. It is given by someone who believes your blog deserves the recognition.
So now that I have been given the award, I have to follow the requirements:

1.  Thank the person you gave you the award and link back to them.

I have already thanked Kanalt above, but I'm going to do it again! Please go read Well Planned Life now! It is amazing, she is amazing, enough said. 

2.  Nominate up to five other blogs for the Liebster Award.

Brian at So this is College? I can GUARANTEE you that he'll never follow up with the award, but, he's my fiance and his photo blog has some pretty incredible work on it. Not that I'm biased.

Whitney at A City Girl in Farm Boots. I grew up with this girl in the Chicago suburbs, and now she and her husband are the proud owners of their own working farm. Reading about their farm life is amazing, and you might even get to see some cute lamb pics (they are due any day now)!

Sandra at Miscellany from a Filofax Fanatic. I have been lucky enough to count Sandra amongst the few Filofax friends I have met in "real life," and I love following her blog which definitely goes beyond just planner talk!

Louloudorset at Loulou's Modern Musings. I'm a relatively recent follower of Loulou's blog, but I immediately fell in love with her writing style. Plus, we're both in the midst of wedding planning, so it's fun to have someone to find inspiration in!

3.  Let the nominated blogger know via a comment on their blog.

Will do!

4.  Post the award on your blog.

Just need to hit publish...

5.  Consider signing up for the A-Z Challenge – a great way to find new and interesting blogs.

I would love to do this, but April is a crazy month for me. Not that every other month isn't, but between some wedding planning deadlines and my annual work benefit mid-month, I just don't want to commit to daily posting. But don't worry- I have plenty of fun posts scheduled for you guys in the coming weeks.

Thanks again to Kanalt, to all my lovely readers, and to all the blogs that provide me with daily inspiration!
