The Liebster Award-A First for This Site

Laura Bruno Lilly of The Journey Continues has generously nominated me for the Leibster Award Discover new Blogs. She shared with me that she “always loves my photos and jaunts into nature”.Thank you. I appreciate this. In the past, with my previous blog, My Heartsong, I was nominated for a couple of awards. This is my most recent blog, although I have not been regular in my posts and do not have a lotof followers. Perhaps this nomination will get me publishing posts in a more consistant basis,and yes, it would be nice to have more visitors to my site, as well as introduce new bloggers.


The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and tag him or her in your post
  • Display the award on your blog by including it in your post and/or displaying it using a ‘widget’
  • Answer the 11 questions asked of you and list 11 Random Facts About Yourself
  • Provide rules for accepting the award (cut and paste this section into your own post)
  • Nominate 5-11 bloggers you enjoy (ideally with 1000 or fewer followers) and inform them of their nominations
  • Create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer
  • Post your Liebster Award blog post link in the comments of your nominator’s Liebster Award Post

  1. thank you so much for participating. i learned we have two more interests in common: we are a dirt bike family (!) with hubby also being a street biker (kawasaki mostly) and of course you know about my horse rescue/therapy involvement.
    BTW: I have a term I coined about being a mix of intro/extro vert (cuz I’m one too) it’s ‘Flextrovert’ How’s that? HA!
    take care

  2. Thank you so very much, Jane, for the shout-out, I am humbled. 🙂 I’ve been down and out for the last month (knee surgery), just resurfacing in the blog world myself, and I was so happy to find your “follow” button so I can get an email when you post. I couldn’t find it before, and I do rely on emails to follow blogs. (silly me) So glad we’re connected now as I’ve missed your old blog. Have a lovely week, my friend. 🙂


    1. I just updated the widgets and did not realize that there was no “follow” button.E-mail is how I receive most of the posts that I follow. Glad to see you back.I wish you a speedy recovery and hope you make your vote count .
