I’m A Liebster Award 2018 Nominee!

I can’t even wrap my head around this. Actually, I don’t even know if I can find the words to express how I’m feeling right now…. which is kind of not a good thing in this business. I could not be more honored and humbled and happy that I have been nominated for the Liebster Award 2018. In case you don’t know what the Liebster Award is, it’s an award that has been helping out new and upcoming bloggers since 2011. You can read more about it right here!

The Rules say:

  • Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog.
  • Write a 150-300 word post about your favorite blog that is not your own. Explain why you like the blog and provide links.

First, I want to give a huge hug and thank you to Alyssa at Miss Reminisce! She’s the one who nominated me! Her blog is one of the most entertaining blogs I’ve ever seen. Everything she blogs about is everything you want to remember from the 80s to the early 2000s!

Second, I pinky promise I am not saying this because she nominated me but her blog is actually my favorite. It makes me so happy to be able to go back in time and see the GOOD things from way back when. I’m sure y’all remember how awkward being a kid was… her posts focus on the happy memories we’ve all forgotten. Remember Skip Its and Beanie BabiesHappy Meals? Just read everything in her “Memories” section. You can thank me later! She’s also been nominated for the Liebster Award AND the Sunshine Blogger Award and once you check out her blog, you’ll see why!
