I Received A Liebster Award Nomination

So I was nominated for the Liebster Award for my blog.

The meaning: Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.

There are certain criteria that must be met in order to continue sharing this award with other bloggers. It’s sort of a fun chain letter that helps bloggers connect & discover new blogs.

The rules are simple:

11 Random Facts About Me:

1.  I'm a pet photographer, writer, blogger.
2.  My head is full of useless historical facts.
3.  I have long, curly red hair, it's natural and although I get many compliments, I really look more like Merida from Brave.
4.  I am an only child.
5.  I love the movie Sense and Sensibility and cry every time Marianne gets her heart broken & when Elinor finally gets together with Edward.
6.  I have dreams of opening an animal sanctuary.
7.  I've written my manuscript, but too afraid of rejection to publish.
8.  I love to make people laugh.
9.  I'm addicted to coconut Jelly Bellies.
10.  I'd rather nap than clean house (which leads to...).
