My lovely blogging friend, Delisa from Dance with Yarn just presented me with the Liebster Blog Award. How sweet is that... thank you SO very much!!
Let's see...I know Liebe is German for love -- as in Ich liebe Dich... I love you.
In the love languages department, receiving/giving gifts is my primary love language. For me, it also includes the gift of 'words of affirmation'....like the lovely comments I receive here.... So my love tank was filled this week with my special treat from Delisa!
I know awards are given to bloggers to share the encouragement and spread the 'love' around. And I love the idea of it, but I also know that some find it burdensome to 'carry out' the rules if they get chosen as a recipient (it does take time).
So I'm taking a page from another blogger's posting and inviting any of you who visit me to consider this your very own 'personal' invitation to accept this award from me. But whether or not you choose to post about it and/or pass it along via the rules is entirely up to you. Enjoy without strings!
Each of you shares a special place in my bloggerly heart! If you'll glance at the sidebar and on my profile page, you'll see the ever-growing list of bloggers with whom I love to keep in touch.
If you choose to click on one or two of these of my friends to meet someone 'new', I'll consider that a way of passing it forward too.
Ich liebe dich!
