And the Liebster Award goes to…

31 Dec

Beth at Structure In An Unstructured Life so kindly nominated me for the Liebster Award! How exciting!  As a new blogger, I feel honored to be on her radar.  This award is a great way to help others discover the “newer” bloggers, like myself.  Thanks for the nomination.  Liebster

Here’s how the award works: bloggers award other bloggers who they deem as “up and coming” and have less than 200 followers. It’s a nice way to help other bloggers increase their visibility. If you receive a Liebster, you must tell 11 things about yourself, answer 11 questions posed by the nominating blogger, and nominate 11 new bloggers. Then you ask those bloggers 11 questions that they will answer. {Don’t forget to tell the new bloggers you have nominated them!}


11 Things about Helicopter Mom and Just Plane Dad

2. I always have at least 2 Chapsticks on me at any given time.  Love those soft kissable lips!
