I Won the Liebster Award!

WOW!  Today is my lucky day!

I had a guy come over from a local lawn care service.  I won a free lawn treatment at a community event a couple weeks ago, and now...

Gossip_Grl presented me with the Liebster Award today!  Thanks Gossip_Grl!

The Liebster Award is for "the best kept secret"  blogs with less then 200 followers. It's a great way to find new blogs and help others get discovered.  I feel honored to be chosen for such a prestigious award!  "The word liebster is German for "dearest"

To accept the award you must do a few things:
1) Thank the person that nominated you on your blog and link back to them.
2) Nominate up to 5 other blogs for the award.
3) Let them know via comment on their blog
4) Post the award on your blog

So here are my 5 winners:

The Armchair Squid  A Better Life Through Blogging (movies and more)

Tracy Jo  Brand New Day (she has a GREAT story!)

Jay Paoloni Actor (Full of culture)

Jungle Mum A mum, cat lover, and poet

Stephsgrn Reader of paranormal YA, Stephen King, etc


  1. Heather, I was nominated from Shay's site too. Nice to meet you and I look forward to it.

    1. Congratulations and thanks for stopping by and following

  2. Hi Heather,
    First of all, congrats on winning that free lawn treatment. The lawn ranger rides again....
    And congrats for receiving the Lobster, sorry, the "Liebster Blog" award. I like the concept behind it because I like to see those who have been "well kept secrets", get the further recognition they deserve. So well done to you and congrats to those you have forwarded it onto. And thus, shy and humble Gary at his, after five years, still a 'well kept secret'site, I state ever so modestly, shall check them out. It took me nearly four years to get up to the one hundred mark in 'followers'. I hate that word 'followers'. Wish we could find a new term for that.
    Anyway, I shall now go and return to my not worth reading, blog.
    Take care, have fun and happy writing.
    With respect, Gary

    1. Hi Gary! Congratulations again for hitting your 5 year blog anniversary. That is quite an accomplishment coming from someone who has only been blogging for a few months. I was thankful for this award and the concept behind it. I have found so far that the more involved I am in blog hops, tags, challenges, commenting, etc, the more people I meet. I don't particularly like the term followers either. I feel like a disciple from the Bible and I am truly not worthy!
      You have a great blog that has obviously stood the test of time and for that you should be proud

  3. Hello from a fellow award winner!
    You have an awesome blog. I subscribed and am looking to reading your new posts!
    Much love,

    1. You're welcome :) I thought it was a great idea too!

  5. Thank you, Heather! I really didn't expect this! Very sweet of you!
    I'll post the award, pick five blogs, and give you a special mention in my blog!
    Thank you again!
