ORDER OF BUSINESS NUMBER ONE:
I am so honored to be a recipient of the Liebster Blogging Award, which was so thoughtfully bestowed upon me by the sensational Bethany Telles, Perched in a Tree blog founder and finalist in the MeeGenius Author Challenge, whose story you should vote for by clicking on this link. =)
The Liebster Blog award is given to bloggers from other bloggers whose follower base does not exceed 200 people. The hope is to attract traffic to those sites. Thanks so much Bethany for thinking of me. Now I get to add something cool to my sidebar!
In addition to naming five other bloggers who I think should receive the award, I am supposed to give you five random facts about me. So here they are!
1. I live in what I consider to be place from a storybook, where I can cruise to our downtown on my bike and jump in a swimming hole to cool off.
2. Two of the best compliments I have ever received? That someone actually thought I was funny and another said they respected me when I thought I was on their list of people they would like to see get thrown under a bus. Total shockers.
3. Sometimes I like to pretend I live in the south of France, surrounded by lavender, cafe music, and quiet picnics outdoors on a blanket. Then I get hit in the head by a rubber ball thrown by my toddler who I have started to call Bam Bam.
4. I speak Spanish.
5. I think I was a Mexican revolutionary in a past life. I am hoping it was one of them.
Now it is my turn to give the Liebster Blogging award to other bloggers who I think are just great. Please add them to your list of people you follow. Each does something very magical and unique at their site!
1. Renee LaTulippe
2. Joanna Marple
3. Heather Newman
4. Jennifer Rumberger
5. Mira Reisberg
