Deja Vu? Liebster Award 4 & 5

Although blogging has taken over my life, I must say that I absolutely enjoy it and I've met some incredible people (okay, not physically met, but virtually).

I never realized that blogging would open up a whole new world....a subculture of people ~ communities filled with photographers, poets, chefs and fashion and nutrition experts...just to name a few. But no matter how different we are...no matter what area we identify with, we are all passionate and we are all bloggers. We put ourselves out there for the world to see....to empathize with....to criticize and to join.

Like any field of work or study (blogging is work....for those who don't know), it's nice to be recognized by your fellow peers. I must thank Zainab and Jessica of Blog of a Bluegrass Belle for nominating my blog again for a Liebster Award.

I think my favorite part of this award each time I receive it is answering the questions and reading everyone else's responses.....here we go! Again! You can read more about the Liebster award here.
