So yesterday I was selected by two different bloggers for the Liebster Award! I was so excited for this opportunity and to be selected twice WOW!
Basically how it works is that a fellow blogger nominates you, you answer 10 questions they have given to you and you send them a thank you shout out! Once you answer your questions you pick 10 other bloggers with under 200 followers to answer 10 questions of your choice!
I was nominated by two other awesome bloggers:
