Second Liebster Award!

I am in a bit of blogger shock as I have received the Liebster Award for a second time! This came my way just seven short days after I participated in the first one. This time around though it comes from Vickilicious over at The Greek Housewife blog! I am so truly touched and flattered that my blog has been receiving the attention it has. Thank you so much Vicki for this award and now for my official participation in this. To get started though, for those who don’t remember or know what a Liebster Award is from my previous entry (Liebster Award!), here’s a bit of information on it.

So… What is the Liebster Award?
The word Liebster is German and it literally means “dearest” or “favorite”. Other meanings include sweetest, kindest, nicest, beloved, lovely, kinda, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. The award recognizes new and upcoming bloggers with less than 200 follwers (or friends) who deserve recognition and support for their contribution in the blogosphere. In order to accept this prestigious award, one must abide by the list of rules.

The Rules:
