Liebster Blog Award

Last week was tough. I worked long hours, didn't sleep much and was just plain exhausted. Then on Tuesday I get this wonderful email from Nicole at This Little Momma saying she had awarded me the Liebster Blog Award. It stopped me in my tracks. I felt so honored and blessed that my blog was actually being read. Not only read, but appreciated. This is what she had to say:

Laura is a photographer/blogger. She blogs about all things creative, inspiring and family.
She defiantly makes me want an iPhone purely for Instagram!  

Well when I thought my blogging journey was at its all time peak, I get an email on Saturday from Megan at Absolute Mommy saying she had awarded me the Liebster Blog Award as well. Two? I had won twice? My head was spinning. This is what she had to say:

So I have a lot of friends and family who blog. It's how we keep it all together. 
She is a photographer/momma/Christian/blogger who has fun link ups and following fest.

The funny thing is, before I received these awards, I didn't know what the Liebser Blog Award was. Just in case you don't know, let me explain. Receiving the Liebster Blog Award is because someone, who you may or may not know, thinks your blog is worthy of exposure. Its awarded to bloggers with under 200 followers, to promote and encourage new friendships with other bloggers.

Here are the rules. When you receive this award you:
1. Post the award on your blog.
2. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
3. Reveal your 5 picks for the award and let them know.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogosphere... other bloggers.
5. Finally, the best rule of all, have fun and spread the love!

So here are my 5 picks:

A true Christian woman who blogs from the heart. She shares personal stories of struggles to help those in need. She is a very important person in my life.

Love her strong faith! Her blog is very inspirational.

A Christian woman who says "Sometimes God whispers and sometimes God shouts. I have been working on hearing his whispers lately." I love that!

She is a military wife currently stationed in Northern Japan. I love reading about the strong, loving relationship she has with her husband. This was perfectly said, "It's never perfect, but I have a wonderful life." Such a positive outlook!

If you've even talked with Cassie, you know she's one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. When I started blogging {just a month ago}, she reached out to me with open arms and helped me with guidance. I'll always be thankful for her.

Since I did receive this award twice, I would like to add some love to these lovely ladies as well:

She is always thinking of others and coming up with the most wonderful crafts. You've got to check out her fab Etsy store here.

She's a blogger of motherhood, faith, travels and fun DIY crafts. She's a gorgeous person inside and out.

She's a mom of three and I don't know how, but has the time to make some incredible crafts. She donates a large portion of her earnings to charity as well. Plus she has amazing boards on Pinterest to follow!

Congratulations you awesome ladies! Each one of you has touched my life one way or another. You deserve this! I hope we can all connect and share our blogging journey together.

  3. Laura you are too sweet to pass this on, I feel so honored! I'm going to look at every single one of the other blogs, too. You've made them all sound like such wonderful people that I simply need to know!
