One of the best parts of blogging, is the friendships you make with other bloggers! Bloggers can nominate other bloggers for awards or tags, and we have been lucky enough to receive a few! Being recognized among your peers is a great feeling, and we have passed some of these along to others we felt were deserving ♥



The Liebster Award was our first award, and the most exciting! This award is for new bloggers, who another blogger has discovered and wants to promote. We both wrote our own posts for it:  Nancy & Kathleen


The Sunshine Blogger Award is for bloggers who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere. We started to both write in one post for future awards- so you’ll see both our answers in the next posts. We were later lucky enough to be nominated for a second Sunshine Blogger Award! Then a third time!


The Mystery Blogger Award is an award for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.


The Versatile Blogger Award is for bloggers who write posts on a myriad of subjects.  We certainly try!


RH tag

Tags are for other bloggers to learn more about you with questions on a certain subject.

We received some love in the Blogger Appreciation Award, so we payed it forward and nominated some other awesome blogs that deserve shout outs in the blogging community!


We shared some lovely facts about ourselves after receiving the One Lovely Blog Award! Lucky us- we were nominated again!
