The Liebster Award

The Liebster Blog Award started in Germany (most likely). 
It is an award used to highlight smaller blogs that are less known (blogs with less than 300 followers).
The Liebster Award is one you accept with the intention of paying it forward. 
When you accept the award, choose 3-5 other blogs that you feel deserve more followers, 
and pass the word on to them.
After accepting the award, you are supposed to share 7 things that the blogging world 
doesn't know about you.

so here goes, although I think you know this first one {smile}....

1. I love my guys, all six of them, as we say... to the moon, out of the galaxy a million, trillion, zillion.  
In all truth, I love being in a house full of boys, they are so fun!!!! 

2. Empathy is so important to me...seeing something from another perspective, reaching in to someone 
instead of waiting for them to reach out, trying to show those whom you love that love now, 
it all should just be a part of daily life.  Nearing the ripe ol' age of 35 {yikes} I appreciate how much 
some of my closest friends get this.

3.  It drives me nuts when people think what they say or do does not resonate with their children.  
Kids are resilient {yes} but capable of so very much, much more than we give them credit for.

4. I have learned to love my curly hair after years of cursing it.  
Although my son did not have chemotherapy for his cancer, 
I met a lot of kids who lost their hair with their treatments and realized how vain it was, now I cherish it.  

5. I have always seemed to have a crush on Matts...{my very own McDreamy of course}...
Matt Damon, Matthew McConaughey, now if only Nathan Fillion would change his name to Matt {ha!}.

6. I love to read, if I had a day to myself I would probably spend it reading, ok and making stuff, finishing projects.  All while eating chocolate, now there is a combo that works!  Oh and watching Molly Ringwald movies, or any 80s flicks, I can do that all at once right?!

7. I would love to write for a living, it is such a process and takes so much out of me, 
but I absolutely with all my heart love it...who knows what He has in store for me!  

 This award was given to me by The Letter 4, the lovely, collaborative blog of four beautiful sisters.  
When I happened upon their blog, I adored it!!!
The number four is special to me, having grown up as four sisters and having four boys {of my five}
born on the same day within minutes of one another.

celebrating their first birthday

The blogs I nominate for this award are...

Jules at bles-id
Christine at Great Oak Circle

I chose each one for a specific reason {which you'll see when you visit them!}.
Some are new sweet blog friends, some real-life know-me friends.
Go on and head on over and show them some love on this {sunny} Monday morning.

And to all visiting from other blogs, link ups, etc. I am glad you are here.
I hope you have enjoyed yourselves!

I have a house of boys as well, and I also have cursed my curly hair, still do sometimes and I love making stuff while eating chocolate. (But who doesn't?) Congratulations on your award.
