I am honored to have been nominated for the blogging Liebster Award by Nicole from How to Fangirl for Adults. Go check out her blog! The Liebster Award is an award by bloggers for bloggers that is passed forward, and it has some other cool bells and whistles too!
- Thank the person who nominated you and post a link to their blog on your blog

- Provide 11 random facts about yourself
