We were so nicely nominated for the Liebster Award by 2 awesome bloggers, Stephanie from Budget Friendly, Too & Allison from Allison Claire Designs! After doing some research into this award, we discovered that it was a way to recognize newer bloggers with a smaller following that have great potential – what an honor! It’s also a way to learn a little more about each other and connect with other bloggers in the community! Since we were nominated twice (!!), and 22 questions is quite a lot, we’ve picked a few from each to answer. Thanks so much for this opportunity Stephanie & Allison!
