My blog is nominated for the Liebster Award!

As I was going to bed two days ago, I read a comment on my blog about someone nominating me for a "Liebster Award". I thought...I am nominated for..what?? So, I researched it for a while and I found out that it is an award for new bloggers (like myself!) with less than 200 followers in order to be introduced to more people.

"Liebster" in german also means "Dearest" (cool! right?)..And now I'm excited about all this!

Two more comments followed the first one, saying that I am nominated two more times! Wow...I'd like to thank Kindergarten Faith, Keepin' It Kool In KinderLand and Mrs.Payton's Precious Kindergarteners for nominating me!
