Liebster Award & Nomination

10 September 2013

I told you that blogging is all about community and friendship! My dear friend Katie @ He Calls Me Grace nominated me for a Liebster Award which comes from bloggers supporting other bloggers! In fact, I think it was the way that bloggers found new bloggers before link ups existed.

The rules are simple:

  1. Link back to those who nominate you
  2. Answer the 10 questions the nominator has for you
  3. Nominate 5-11 bloggers with less than 200 followers
  4. Create 10 questions for your nominees
  5. Be sure to notify your nominees

  1. What is the first thing you do when you get on your computer each day? (Check email, social media, etc.)

    The first thing that I do when I get on my computer each day is usually type a blog post! With the exception of the last week, I usually am frantically writing or scheduling social media at 6:15 a.m. before my post goes life at 6:30 a.m.

  2. Do your friends and family read your blog? If so, how long after you started did you tell them about it?

    My family doesn't read it. And only recently did I share posts on my personal Facebook page/share it with my friends in conversation. So If we looked at the time between when I started to when I told them it would be about 3 years.

  3. What is your favorite season and why?

    I am a huge fan of Fall. I love the weather (especially in Nashville). I love the fashion. I love the flavors (you can't beat cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin or allspice in my book!). I am a huge fan of back-to-school shopping and deals. And nothing is prettier to me than colorful leaves on trees.

  4. What is your dream job? (If money was no issue.)

    Honestly, I would say life coach or food critic.

  5. What book are you currently reading (or read last)? Do you recommend it?

    I am currently working through The Love Dare in preparation for this awesome book study Amberly and I are cooking up! Stay tuned for details next week!

  6. If you won the lottery, would you (and your husband/boyfriend if you have one) quit your day job?

    Nope. I'd be that person that people wouldn't know I was rich. Vacations might get a little nicer and buying a home would certainly be easier!

  7. What is something that is currently on your wish list?

    A puppy. But honestly, that won't happen for awhile.

  8. If you had nothing to do tomorrow, what would be your ideal day to yourself?

    Mani/pedi's, massage, coffee. Maybe a little BarreAmped. Afternoon lunch at my favorite sandwich place. Nap. Some Friends on T.V. Dinner on the patio. Bubble bath.

  9. Tell me something cool about the city that you live in. Where would you take me if I were to visit?

    I can't name just ONE cool thing about Nashville. Frankly it is all cool. BUT...I would take you to Broadway at night. It is fun to pop into and out of the honky-tonks and hear live music and experience Nashville nightlife.

  10. Will you follow me? Thanks!
