The Liebster Award

I am so humbled and honoured to be nominated by Kortney from The Mason Dixon Home for the Liebster award.  Kortney is such a sweet, kind and positive individual and I expect she’ll have great success in her blogging journey, so go check out her site!

The Liebster Award is an honour given by fellow bloggers to new blogs that have been around for less than two years and have less than 1000 followers.  It’s purpose is to connect new bloggers with other bloggers.  It is such a great exercise in socializing with others in the blogging community and simply really fun to participate in.  As you may (or may not) know, Flowers and Faux Pas is all about being inspired and inspiring others and being nominated for this is so touching and makes me feel like that message is getting out there.
