I've Been Given A Liebster

One of my fellow bloggers, Sincerely Jenni, gave me this awesome Liebster award. It’s meant for bloggers that don’t have a lot of followers, but ones maybe you SHOULD be following!  Jenni is a fellow Iowan and I think her blog jumped out at me first because of her blog title.  Since then I have come to adore her writings and hope someday, we can meet up in person!  Heck we are only 2 hours apart from each other.  Thanks Jenni for the love!

Now I’m going to pass this award on to five other deserving bloggers. For the Liebster award, the blogs all must have fewer than 200 followers. Those of you I have awarded must keep sharing the love....pretty please.  Please, readers, stop on by Jenni's and the other blogs and leave a comment saying I sent you!

Here's what you need to do if you've been awarded:
1. Copy the award to your blog.

2. Thank the giver and link back to their blog.

3. Reveal your top five up-and-coming blogs, and let the bloggers know.

4. Spread the love!

Here’s my five:

READS, RANTS, RAVES, REVIEWS  This blog is from another fellow Iowan.  She makes me laugh and offers reviews and tips that I enjoy!  We also have a mutual real life friend which makes me feel like I should like her even more!

SO FAMILY'S BLOG I just recently found Monica's blog and I am so glad I did.  She is positive and inspiring and has all kinds of fun stuff to offer on her blog!  You should definitely check her out!

READING CONFETTI Lorie has also been a new find for me and I am so excited about finding her blog.  She features kids' books and crafts which I love because I am always looking for new ideas for my Story Time.  If you are a teacher, parent, day care provider, grandma, or love kids' stuff....check out this blog!

CREATIVE GENIUS ART I met Keri last year in a Bible Study but never knew how creative she was until she was featured in the newspaper.  Ever since then I have been following her blog and drooling over her work.  I am trying to decide which design I want her to do for me.  She keeps coming up with more and more great pieces that I love them all! I promise you will LOVE her work too!

AN IOWA MOM This was one of the very first blogs I ever read.  She is another local Iowan and frankly, I miss her.  If you look at her site, she hasn't blogged since FEBRUARY.  So, Wendy, I am hoping this gives you a little nudge to come back.  She always had a way of making me laugh!

Please check out all the awesome ladies and share some love with them.
