Blog Love

The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

To keep this award going and pass it along to other new deserving blogs, the recipient must now recognize five other bloggers with less than 200 followers that have really stood out in the crowd.

~One of my favorite bloggers, Michelle, gave me a blog award! So sweet.  Check her out!!

Michelle has a baby girl who is Lily's age (just about 10 or so days younger) and I started following her when we were both pregnant.  Michelle and her husband are serving our country and are currently stationed in Germany.  I'm so grateful to them both for their service!!  I have loved watching their baby grow (she walked WAYYYY before Lily haha) and seeing their adventures across the ocean.  Thank you, Michelle!

The rules for the Liebster Award are:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top five picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love too!

My pick for blogs to follow was easy!  I have some friends I'd like to share with y'all. 

All of these ladies are local to the Pittsburgh area.  We discovered each other on Twitter actually.
What I love about all of them is they are positive, supportive, encouraging women. We're all in varying stages of parenting...some 1st time mamas, others adding the second and/or third baby (all girls) to the mix. A few of us have widely spaced siblings with a much older brothers to these baby girls.  Connection.  That is what life is all about.  I enjoy, appreciate and respect all of these women!  Some of us are in real life friends and today, actually all of us will meet up for a playdate! I hope you enjoy their blogs too!!
