Liebster Love!

Yesterday I was given a Liebster Blog award by Bee Girl from Sky Minded & Ever Growing, I couldn't believe it! Her blog is so inspirational and to be selected by her for this award is an honor :)

I've been quite ill these last few weeks and I'd been worrying that my blog was suffering but getting this has given me confidence to just keep being myself and to stop stressing! So thank you again :)

"Liebster" is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. What a gift to be awarded with such kindness!
Alright, on to the details. The Liebster is a way to show a little Blog Love to bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.

The rules:
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have fun!

Now for my five picks, in random order...

Saving for travel
A great blog written by a frugal woman successfully reaching the goals in her
 101 in 1001 challenge and encouraging her loyal followers to do the same!

A blog full of really inspiring posts about a new eco homestead coming 
together and practical ways to be more environmentally friendly anywhere!

and happy words from a happy family, I love it :)

a great read with some interesting opinions and ideas.
