I got an award!!!

Sadie Mae's Mommy, Hannah, gave me this blog award!!! Yay!! My first blog award.  I'm so excited!!

Liebster is German & means "dearest" or "beloved" but it can also mean "favorite." The idea behind the Liebster award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers.

As part of receiving the Liebster Blog award, one is to:

1. Choose 5 blogs with fewer than 200 followers to grant the Liebster Blog award to. 
2. Show appreciation to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them!
3. Post the award on your blog and link back to the blogs you have given the Liebster Blog award to so everyone else can pay them a visit! 

Now, the hard part!  I follow a LOT of blogs, so it's not going to be easy to pick just 5.  Bare with me as I try!!

1) An Unexpected Journey
Rachel and I have a lot in common.  I discovered her blog through a friend of mine who insisted that I read it.  Rachel and Cameron lost their beautiful daughter, Makiah, tragically in a car accident.  Rachel was pregnant with twins at the time and luckily she, along with the babes, survived the crash.  Her story is raw and real and it touches so close to home.  She and I are both set on making sure our girls know who their big sister (and brother) are.

2) The Broken Road
I'm breaking a rule with Tiffany's blog.  She has 212 followers, but I want everyone to know their story.  Tiffany and her husband, Dave, lost their precious Ellie Lauree at just 10 months old.  She was perfectly healthy one day and the next she was fighting for her life.  Tiffany and Dave are raising their son, Max, who is on the spectrum for Autism and they are also expecting twins this year!! 

3) Our Life... As Is
I fell in love with Ashley and her family the moment I started reading her blog.  I know you'll love her too!

4) La Dolce Vita
I have the pleasure of knowing Sandi.  She's the daughter of one of my co-workers.  Sandi is the sweetest and her blogs are always so fun to read.  Sandi and Chad are expecting their first little boy any day now.

5) A Little Monkey Business
I've been following Jen's blog for a while.  She has 2 precious children and she's always posting the most fun stories!

6) On Second Thought
This blog is written by 2 girls - one of which, I know personally.  Jess is a wonderful person.  She's beautiful, smart and a lot of fun to hang out with.  She has a sweet little boy named Leo, who is quickly approaching his first birthday and just recently announced her new baby on the way.

There are so many more blogs that I could post here, but I'm trying hard to stick to the rules!!  I hope you enjoy reading these blogs as much as I do!!
