An Award!

The 4R Ranch blog made my day when they listed me as one of their Liebster Blogs (which means something along the lines of dearest or beloved in German). Thank you so much!

Here are the directions that come along with the award:

1. Copy and paste the award on your blog
2. Link back to the blogger who gave you the award
3. Pick your five favorite blogs with less than 200 followers, and leave a comment on their blog to let them know they have received the award.
4. Hope that the five blogs chosen will keep spreading the love and pass it on to five more blogs

So, in no particular order:

dun dun dun music here.....

Life Be Delicious
Anna is expecting her first baby any moment now, and I can't wait to see pictures of him! I love her posts on her life, turquoise and food. This lady also has some great taste in decor and fashin in my opinion, and she is kind enough to share some of her finds on her blog. I also love that she "gets on her soapbox" from time to time and isn't afraid to tell it like it is.

Happily Ever After
I went to middle and high school with Laura, the author of this blog, but that's not the only reason I love her posts. She is a gifted writer, and her stories of motherhood and life in general are hilarious, inspiring and memorable. She is a super mom and talented individual who will touch you with her posts about life, parenthood and projects she takes on!

From My Front Porch
Jent's blog reminds me of my family growing up, and that alone makes it a favorite to read. She lives in the country, covers a huge variety of topics, and is brutally honest and funny! She also uses pictures in most of her posts of the people/topics she's covering, and I do like pictures...

Speaking of pictures, this girl has a lot of them on her blog! She often does a Friday Favorites post, where she puts up a variety photos she liked from that week. She is kind enough to use mine from time to time, and I also love the other amazing pictures she finds. You will see everything from cows to landscapes to high fashion on a given Friday, and she fills in the other days with her personal photography.Very cool!

Dicky Bird's Nest
This gal blogs on a variety of topics, and right now I am particularly hooked on her week of meals based on one key ingredient everyone is likely to have a lot of leftovers when they prepare (ham...), and her posts on the right tool for the job. Several of the people I follow bring their faith into their blogs, and Dicky does this in a unique and memorable way with her right tool for the job posts right now. She also signs off each post with, "Blessing from Wisconsin."  : )

And there you have it, hope you enjoy reading them as much as I do! A couple of these didn't list their actual number of followers, so I apologize if any of you that I listed have 500 followers I didn't know about : )
I could keep going, because there are certainly more than 5 of these amazing blogs with under 200 followers that I enjoy stopping by and reading, and many more with over 200 followers.


  1. WOW, thanks for the award and nice comments. I LOVE your photos! Your "hands on" knowledge is refreshing to read about. Thanks I will pass it on - might take a day or two... Blessings from Wisconsin.

  2. Aww, you're so sweet!! Thanks HH!

  3. Congratulatios for the award! That's great!

    I seriously need to catch up with some of your latest posts....
    P.S.: I'm German and 'liebster' means '(most) favourite' =)

  4. Awww thanks Heather - read your email the other day and really just haven't had time to keep up with everything! I really appreciate you thinking of me and take it as a huge compliment that what I write about reminds you of your childhood!

  5. For some reason, I never notice the comments people leave on my blog until looong after they are left. That being said, I just realized that you awarded Fotofanatic as one of your favorite blogs! I am so honored...thank you (a little late). Your blog is wonderful as well--I absolutely love it!
