Catching up and thanks...

Well, I've been way out of the loop for the past week. I was busy planning, prepping, celebrating and recovering from my husband's 40th birthday, nursing a cold and just trying to regroup this week and get my bearings.  In the midst of this happy chaos, Elizabeth from the Little Black Door surprised me with the Liebster blog Award which is given to a blog on the rise. It is a great way to shine a light on those who are making their way in the blog world, and I am beyond flattered for the nod.  

If you haven't visited Elizabeth's blog, you should definitely take a look. I stumbled upon it when Emily A. Clark featured this gorgeous corner of Elizabeth's house. 
She has incredible taste and talent and always makes me laugh to boot.

Her blog is a daily read for me (when I'm not off the grid like last week), so I'm really honored that she thought of me and my little old blog.

Now it's my turn to pass along the same admiration to five of my favorite blogs:

Kathleen of Simple Silly Life
Joanne of Homestyling 101

Fellow bloggers, if you'd like, feel free to continue the tradition and:
1. Link back to the person who gave it to you. 
2. Post the award on your blog for all to see!
3.Give the award to 5 of your favorite bloggers (ideally with approximately 200 followers or less).
4.Leave a comment on your chosen 5 blogs to let them know that they have been given the Liebster award.

Thanks Elizabeth and to all of my blog friends and supporters!

Have a great weekend!
