Are you sitting down? Good! Because I have some exciting news to tell!
The Daily Nest was just nominated for it's first award!
The Liebster Award!!
I am beyond excited and screamed out in excitement when I opened my e-mail at 6:00 a.m.!!
My husband thought I had lost my mind!
Thank you to Janice at Nearly Handmade for nominating me.
What a sweetheart she is and I can't thank her enough!
It means so much to me from the bottom of my heart!
The Liebster Award is an award given by other bloggers to new blogs that deserve a look.
Which means a lot! Because when you start blogging, you wonder, "Is anyone even reading it?"
Liebster is a German word that means:
BELOVED, CUTE, LOVELY, DEAREST and WELCOME!

1. Post 11 facts about yourself
2. Answer 11 questions from your nominator
3. Nominate 5-11 new blogs with less than 200 followers

11 facts about me:

2. I love all kinds of music and sing ALL THE TIME, and pretty much in perfect pitch! NOT!!
3. Speaking of music, my favorite all time band is Fleetwood Mac. My husband and I saw them last year in concert and I cried when I saw and heard Stevie Nicks!
4. I hate any kind of controversy in my life, and I'm not happy if I feel like things are not in balance!
