The Liebster Award
You guys, I have some really exciting news! The French Lemon was recently nominated to receive the Liebster Award. The Liebster Award is an award that recognizes new bloggers! Blogging isn’t always that easy so it was so nice to receive a little bit of recognition. Thank you so much Claira at A Little Peace of Home for nominating me! I am so flattered and really appreciate it!
Part of the Liebster Award is answering questions posed by the blogger who nominated you, so here are my answers to Claira’s questions!
1. Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging for a number of reasons. First and foremost, blogging is a great way to document my life with my kids and husband. It is also an excellent way to share what is going on in our lives with our family and friends.
Another reason that I started blogging is that I need a creative outlet. I love to write and people are constantly asking me how I handle different aspects of raising five kids. Blogging lets me get my creative juices flowing and lets me share ideas and advice with others.
2. What is your favorite dessert?
Oh man! This is a hard question. I have the worst sweet tooth! I’m not sure that I can even pick a favorite dessert but brownies and cheesecake ranks pretty high!
3. Do you prefer breakfast or dinner?
Dinner definitely! I’ve never really been a breakfast person. I have learned to appreciate breakfast foods more as I’ve gotten older but they still aren’t my favorite.
4. What is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lives?
I think everyone should travel internationally at least once in their lives. I think the U.S. is a wonderful country but I think it is so beneficial to visit another country and experience another culture. Travelling internationally forces you to see the world as other’s see it and at times, it can be a wonderful lesson in thinking critically and problem solving, especially in a country where you don’t speak the native language.
5. Where is your favorite vacation spot and why?
My favorite vacation spot right now is Paris. I love the city so much! It has such a wonderful atmosphere and culture! There are a lot of places I want to visit on my bucket list but I’m not sure I will ever fall out of love with Paris.
Passing on the Liebster Award
The second part of accepting the Liebster Award is to pass it on to other new bloggers that I think you should check out. I’m passing the award on to the following bloggers:
Saidy at Simply Saidy
Savannah at Savannah Yost
Catarina at Dear Amelie
Allie at Bohemian Nation
Mallory at Plaid Shirt Yoga Pants
Casey at Hunting for Rubies
Nadia at Blonde the Road
Hev at Average Joe Adventures
My questions for these bloggers:
- If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be?
- What is your favorite book and why?
- What is your favorite food?
- Why did you start blogging?
- What is the one piece of advice you would give to bloggers just getting started?
Thanks again to Claira for the recognition!
