The Liebster Award is given by nomination from a fellow blogger. It’s an award for small bloggers made to encourage one another. Liebster is a German word for “sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing & welcome.”
This week, I was surprised and flattered with a little Liebster encouragement from my Estonian friend, Terje (who blogs at Just for a Month). I am always charmed (enchanted, even) by Terje’s words. She has such an endearing way with language and never fails to come up with a clever approach to her blog posts. I also follow her on Pinterest and find her taste in artwork just as inviting as her writing. It is amazing to be connecting with someone so far away. To have her recognition like this means a great deal to me; the honor alone is special, but to be honored by someone whose writing I so admire is truly meaningful. Plus, I suspect she knows me better than many of the people I interact with daily know me. That makes me smile.
My duties as a Liebster recipient are to answer some questions to introduce myself and to pass the honor on to a blogger I know and love. Here goes:
