happy november: the liebster award

hi girls!
to be honest, i had to take a little day off from i decided to change up the layout...again. i have the worst add/odd so i'm really particular about things, so i think i like the current plain state my blog is in :)

i can not believe it's november! i am so over the moon about it! november for me starts the holidays...especially since i'm having a (really) early thanksgiving this sunday with my in laws. bring.on.the.turkey.

these next two months are going to go by so much quicker than i'm going to want to, so i'm going to really try and take it all short, this is a fair warning of all the pictures i'm going to post.

{like this one! these are the extent of my fall decorations. 
oh i have towels in the kitchen too, but that's it. i'm holding out for christmas!}

and now: the liebster award!

the beautiful ashely from the christian wife life gave me this award a couple weeks ago and i was stunned. i can't believe i've gotten to the point where 80 some people want to read what i write, and i don't have to force you to read it (like i did at the beginning with my family and friends). you all bless me so much i can't even explain.

a special thanks goes out to ashley for giving me the award. she follows a lot of blogs girls and i am so lucky to have been picked. she's an amazing woman of God and a blessing in my life. 


what is the liebster award?
it's an award given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. 
liebster is a german word meaning: dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, pleasant, cute, endearing, and welcome.

how the award works and how to keep it going:
1. choose 5 new bloggers to recieve the award
2. thank the giver of the award and make sure to link back to her blog when you blog about the award
3. reveal your 5 picks and leave a comment on their blog with the good news!
3. make sure to copy and paste the award onto your blog
5. have faith that your followers will spread the love!

so here are my 5:

1. annie @ annie's musings
annie is becoming a close friend of mine and i'm so blessed to have her in my life. her blog is amazing so please go check it out. she's got a passion for the Lord and she's really smart yo. she's beautiful and young and although we can't agree on one major thing (go buckeyes) i still love her and know you will too!

mary is a doll girls. God has brought her into my life, and closer than imagined (we live 3 hours away from each other!) she's super crafty which i admire, and loves Jesus. she's a grad student so her blog is so easy to relate to being in school as well. please go check out her blog and her etsy shop!

noelani is a mommy and a woman of Christ. her blog is real and i love that. she has a beautiful family and i love that she shares them with her readers. she's a wonderful example of a christian wife and mother and someone i look up to. her blog will easily be one of your new favorites!

4. sydney @ faithful always
sydney was one of my first 'bloggy friends'. she is a young girl who loves the Lord and it spills out in her blog. this girl has one of the biggest hearts i've ever had the privilege of meeting. she supports some of the most amazing organizations around and uses her blog as an outlet for them. please please go hop over to her blog i know you won't be disappointed!

emily is so amazing. i also met her early on and built a lasting friendship. she's that girl that everyone get's along with because of that beautiful smile and her love for God that just seeps through everything she does. her blog is so real and that's why i love it. she's relatable and so real. so go on...enough of me blabbing, get over to her blog!

it was so hard to just pick 5! after you check those blogs out, head over to my side bar and look at all the rest i read daily! 

all my love,
