Liebster Award

Well I have been nominated for the Liebster award by Kim from Differentiation and Diving. Thanks Kim! It is such an honor. I am relatively new to blogging, so I wasn't quite sure what the Liebster award after further research I found out that the Libster Award is awarded to new bloggers with less than 200 followers.
In order to receive the award the recipient must:
  • Post 11 things about themselves.
  • answer the questions that the tagger set for you, plus create 11 questions for the people you’ve nominated for the award
  • Choose 11 people and link them in your post, and go to their blog and tell them.
  • You can't choose people that have already been chosen! In other words---no tag backs!
Here goes nothing.....
