A Pair of Liebsters

In addition to the 7×7 Award in yesterday’s post, I was also awarded a pair of Liebsters: one from Prairie Wisdom and another from A Winsome Journey.  Thank you both so very much!  I enjoy your posts and pictures and am certain that anyone who isn’t familiar with your blogs should click on the links and get acquainted. 

Now, some of you already know what a Liebster is and some of you may be scratching your heads while thinking – ‘does she mean lobster’?  For those people I’ll include the background on the award. 

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. 

Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.  Sounds like a nice way of referring to a little cousin doesn’t it – as in my dear liebster! 

The rules for accepting the Liebster are as followers:

You must thank your Liebster Blog Award presenter on your blog complete with link to their site.  (See first line of post!)

Copy and paste the blog award on your blog.  (See picture above)

Reveal your five blog picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. (See below)

1.  Lee – This is the busiest retired person I know.  I think she retired just to work on more projects.  You’ll love her wit and travel connundrums. 

2.  Melynda – This gal has it together and she tells the funniest stories.  I still crack up at the red kool – aid in the shower head prank and often tell her how clever she is.

3.  Arindam – Because everyone should be reading his unique perspective – such an interesting young man with a beautiful use of language.

4.  Piper – I enjoy this blog for many reasons but perhaps mostly because of the funny things her children do and say.  Moms will like this one a lot, but so will everyone else.

5.  Ellen – Her lovely blog is an online journal of construction and landscaping and we are all along for the journey with her accomplishments and the dreaded set backs, though those are few and far between.  You’ll be cheering her on!

So, there you have it – my five dear little liebsters.  Now I must go and let them know about their awards.

  1. Congrats Renee 🙂 How are you handling so much awards & appreciation together! I hope you are not tired of these things.
    And thanks a lot for giving this award. I love getting awards, although i never got many of them. Most importantly getting an award from you is a different feeling. Now again i have to prepare a list for passing this award. But i really enjoy this process of appreciating someone other’s work by giving these kind of tokens of appreciation. 🙂

  2. Congratulations on your award, and thank you for passing one along to me. I hope I can live up to your praise in other people’s eyes. (Maybe you have to know me?)
    Anyhow, my sincere appreciation, Lee

  3. Aw Thanks! That was super sweet of you. It might take me a couple of days to get ‘er done, but I’m glad you think those nice things about me. I’m also glad you enjoyed my nonsense today! 🙂

    1. As you can tell, it took me a couple of weeks – not days – to get them done. But that’s ok. And I always enjoy your ‘sense and nonsense’. All good stuff.

  4. Congratulations on receiving the award and thank you so much for passing it on to me! It truly is an honor to receive it from someone of your writing skills!
    Thanks Again,

  5. I am stumbling in here late, and very embarrassed, I might add. I have been buried in stuff, and will not bother to identify what all the layers of stuff are, although one layer has to do with family visits. So, I’ve been offline for a few days. I did see that you’d given me an award, and I am, again, embarrassed to say that E. C. had awarded me this lovely Liebster some weeks back and I told her I needed to catch up on the technology to even accept it. (My face is really red now.) At any rate, thank you so much for the award. When my daughter leaves and things calm down a bit for me, I will face my technological fears and graciously accept this award from you and E. C. (Can you accept from two people?)

    Most of all, congratulations. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts, which are most award-worthy! And am delighted to have been selected by you for this award. Thank you so very much.
