A lot of love goes into blogging and discovering creative new writers is always exciting. The idea behind The Liebster Blog Award is to create an opportunity for new bloggers to meet and build valuable relationships to help our blogs gain momentum and reach a larger audience. It was created for smaller blogs and it’s a German word that means sweetest, nicest, kindest, dearest and beloved.
A big hug to my friend and fellow blogger Andrea Beazley who has been working hard to make our diets and lives a little healthier. For great (and simple) tips to check out her blog Good Health Girl. They’re sure to come in handy as we approach the holidays!
