So Kind - My First Blog Award

What a lovely surprise it was to find that the gorgeous Kim over at Feather and Nest has passed on a blog award to me. So kind of you Kim. Thank you!  

It’s called the:

Liebster is a German word for dearest or beloved or favourite. How kind of Kim to give this award to me.  

This is what the award is all about:

In the spirit of fostering new connections, the idea of the Liebster Award is to bring attention to blogs with less than 200 followers. Just a few rules for the recipient which come with acceptance of the award:
1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Copy & paste the award onto your blog.
3. Reveal your own five picks for the award & let them know by 
leaving them a comment on their blog.
4. Have faith that the love will spread...
Here are my five picks for the award. Enjoy and congratulations to you, lovely bloggers!

This blog by Meagan is inspiring. Meagan has written tutorials,
posts on eco-living, natural parenting and recipes including vegetarian recipes. Her family is striving to live more simply, 
to eat and grow whole foods, to slow down and  to spend more
time in nature. All things I'm interested in. 

Kika lives in Western Canada and is another person with similar interests to me. She home schools her children, who are similar 
ages to mine, and she is also studying about natural nutrition.
Like me, Kika has only recently started this blog. It is a
great read. 

Kim, the author of this blog, and I, share many similar interests: nutrition, similar parenting ideas, 
growing her own food and working towards simplicity. I love reading Kim's blog because it is great 
connecting with people with similar interests.
In this blog Christine posts about her life on a three acre 
property in the Victorian bush in Australia. Christine's blog 
is a place where she keeps a diary as she makes her way towards 
a slower, simpler life. 

The author of this blog is Francesca and she blogs from an ancient village in 
northern Italy. This is what initially attracted me to Francesca's blog as I have 
a thing about Italy. I love the scenery in Italy and the importance the people 
place on family life. 
Francesca blogs about family life, gardening, self-reliance, cooking, crochet, embroidery and sewing. I love reading about her family's life in another country. 

So that’s my lovely five. It would be so great if you would pop on over and say hello to them as well as to Kim who passed this award on to me. 
Thanks again Kim for sharing this Leibster Blog award with me. 
xxoo Julie
