Beautiful Blogger and Liebster Awards

25 Feb

Awards Thank You1

Healthy A-Z has been VERY fortunate this year. I am so grateful to Summer from Grow Your Innerself for the nomination for the Beautiful Blogger Award and to Sarah from Simply Sarah for the nomination for the Liebster Blog Award.

I highly recommend a visit to each of their blogs. Summer is very genuine and enthusiastic as she shares her insights and encourages us to be the best we can be. Sarah is also very genuine; she writes about her life and shares photos and sometimes paleo recipes. The photos often include her son, who is THE CUTEST little boy you can imagine! Now you have to go take a peek, don’t you?

As part of the Liebster Blog Award, I am to tell you five random things about myself:

  1. I was recently contacted by a classmate from Junior High School (yeah, that’s what they called it in those days).
  2. It has been great fun getting reacquainted.
  3. There is a possibility for catching up with others from those days in Miami in May.
  4. That possibility is called Greynolds Park Love-in.
  5. Some bands that were popular at that time will be playing there.

Did you notice how I made one random event into five random things? 🙂

I am also to answer the following questions:

  1. If you could only eat three things for the rest of your life, what would they be? Hmmm, maybe eggs, spinach and blueberries
  2. What item of technology can you not live without? Computer
  3. What do you do to relax and unwind? Yoga or meditation
  4. Why did you start blogging? I was drawn to it without really knowing exactly why. Now I am so glad I am blogging, because I love all of the really great people from all over the world I have met along the way.
  5. What is your favorite song today? Any of the inspired harp music by Peter Sterling. (I really like Jason Mraz, too; he’s great with words.)

Beautiful Blogger Award Nominees:

Liebster Blog Award Nominees:

After a little research, I discovered this is an award for those with 200 or fewer followers to highlight the newer bloggers and introduce more people to them. A couple of the nominees have already received a Liebster Blog Award (yay!). This is a different Liebster Blog Award badge, so it is a new award.

Visit them all…and share some love!

    Bad manners on my part! I forgot to congratulate you on both your awards – yes, I like how you gave 5 random answers off of one theme. Just imagine how everyone will look after a few years have gone by – you’ll have a great time, I’ll bet!
