I am so honored to have received a Leibster Blog Award from my friend and traveling buddy, Barbara Rankin..
In Barbara's words:...
"What is the Liebster Award?
Well. . .the origins of the Liebster Blog award are somewhat unclear and this seems to be blog folklore but it goes like this:
"Some time (in the recent past), somewhere (rumor has it that it might be Germany), someone (I guessing he/she was named Liebster) decided to do something nice for a whole lot of bloggers and started the Liebster Blog Award. It’s an award you receive, but it is also an award that you give."
Liebster is a German word, so translated from a few sources it means favorite, sweetheart, beloved, darling.
If you receive a Liebster Blog Award you are asked to choose 3-5 other bloggers and send them one as well. It is an award meant to highlight smaller blogs - less than 200 followers. Let them know that we care and are reading. The idea is that the blogger receiving the award links back to the blogger who awarded him/her, and then chooses 3-5 people to send the award to. There is no obligation to continue this award. It is a lovely way to share the love and also a way of introducing other bloggers to the blogs you enjoy."
I'm not sure how many followers these blogs have, but these are the ones I would like to pass the love on to:
