I was just getting ready to start this post, when a blogging friend left a comment saying she gave me this...
Megan, who writes over at Girl Meets Camera, gave me this Leibster Award. So I just went over to her blog to read what a Leibster is. (I would not have been surprised if it meant someone who eats large amounts of chocolate...because I certainly deserve an award for that.)
But apparently liebster means dearest in German. Isn't that sweet ?
So I'm supposed to answer the questions Megan left on her blog, and then pass the award to some other bloggers I love dearly as well. It sounds like a fun way to share some blog love, and I was stumped for what to write about tonight anyway....so thanks, Megan, for the award ... you are pretty liebster yourself.
Liebster, liebster, liebster.
I just really like the sound of that word.
Okay, moving on - here are Megan's questions, and my answers. I put on a ball gown and smiled really big while I was typing the answers, because isn't that what people do when they're presented with awards ? Please picture me wearing a tiara and a ball gown while you read my answers.
1. What is your favorite blog post you have written?
I have a few... Enough is one I always go back to. It was very therapeutic for me to write. The Big Picture was another. And even though I've come a long way since writing it - I Had a Dream. Because I can still read it and know exactly how I felt and what I was thinking when I wrote it.
2. If you could have any profession what would it be?
7. Any advice for someone wanting to start a blog?
Write for yourself and be yourself. Stay true to your convictions even if they're not popular. Delete rude comments :)
8. Do you consider yourself crafty?
Well, I love to scrapbook. Does that count ?
9. What inspires your blog posts?
My family. My faith. I love to write, and I've always loved to write. It's how I process things.
10. Why did you choose your blog’s name?
When I was pregnant with Lily, before we knew she was a girl, this blog was called Waiting For You. When we found out she was a girl through ultrasound, I changed the name to Waiting For Lily. When she was born, I wanted something to reflect my feelings for her...my husband actually picked the name when we were staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Portland next to OHSU where Lily was in the NICU. I was writing the post to announce her birth, crying...because things were so crazy at that point. Sam and I were looking at a picture of her on his phone, and he said she was perfect...and that I should call the blog A Perfect Lily.
11. What are some of your favorite things to do?
Read. Write. Scrapbook. Play piano. Give birth. Nurse my babies. Attend births. Play with my kids. Play piano. Talk to my husband. Go to church. Share my faith. Listen to music. Cook. Discover new recipes. Talk to friends on the phone. Take pictures of my kids. Edit photos. Talk to my kids. Hold my grandbabies. Blog. Go camping. Learn. Learn. Learn. Eat ice cream. Eat chocolate. Say liebster. The End.
I shall share with you a little liebster Lily before I nominate some liebster blogging friends....
And now, for the moment you've all been waiting for...
I present the golden teal colored Liebster Award to....
