We were nominated for the Liebster Award

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bloggers by bloggers. It is a way to acknowledge each other and say “you’re doing a great job”. It is for blogs with 200 or less followers, so it’s also a great way to spread the word about smaller blogs and get them more readers and followers! 

When you receive the award, you post 11 random facts about yourself and answer 11 questions from the person(s) who nominated you. You pass the Award onto 11 other blogs (make sure you tell them you nominated them!) and ask them 11 questions. You’re not allowed to nominate the blog(s) who nominated you! (To get the button, right click the picture on my page and save the picture to your computer. You can then upload to your blog.) Thank you It's Sarah Rose for nominating us!!

Hi Michelle! What a small world. You and Adam came up in a conversation recently, but I can't remember what it was about. Where about in Arizona are you? Jeff and I live in Flagstaff but are looking to relocate to Phoenix. What a cute blog and so fun to do it with sisters. Thanks for the nomination, I will try and get a post up in the near future :)
