Congratulations Virginia Views for receiving the Liebster Award! I would like to give a shout out to Dor who generously passed this award forward to me! I am indeed honored to be in the company of such wonderful bloggers. I normally don’t enjoy the beinbg in the spotlight. I’m more of a behind the scenes kinda gal, but hey I’m certainly not going to ignore it when it lands in my inbox.
Liebster (pronounced: leeb-stir) is a German word meaning sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. The Liebster Blog Award recognizes up and coming bloggers and winners are asked to “pay it back and forward.” The award is given to those bloggers who have less than 200 followers. I follow such greatness, let’s hope I can wrangle up some newcomers to share in the excitement.

- Post 11 things about yourself.
- Answer the questions asked of you, plus create 11 new questions for your nominees to answer
- Nominate 11 people you think deserve the award and link them to your post.
- Go to their pages and tell them they have been chosen
Eleven Things About Me
1. I would not allow the anesthesiologist to give me a spinal for my C-section because he was wearing white shoes. Sorry I just thought it was odd for a man to wear white shoes, not to mention it was February.
2. I enjoy working on campaigns or fighting causes, these are the things that energize me.
3. Talking to small children always puts me in a good mood. Their honesty is a guaranteed laugh.
4. I started attending Quaker Meeting 3 years ago and it is has changed me for the better.
5. I read the book The Four Agreements over and over and over as a constant reminder.
6. I love being empowered by powerful moments. It could be a speech, a performance or an action. That feeling of being moved is the best feeling ever.
7. My feelings are always written on my face, it’s a curse.
8. Gerber daisies are my favorite flower followed closely by the hydrangea.
9. I enjoy having a garden, but would love it more if I had a gardener.
10. I enjoy going to Jury Duty, seeing my “peers” keeps me from acting on my thoughts.
11. I am an early riser, even on weekends and vacations.
Now, these are the questions that Dor asked me to answer:
1) If you could go anywhere in the world and stay for a month, where would you choose to go? Italy, more specifically Tuscany.
2) What is your hobby? Blogging.
3) What was your childhood dream? I wanted to be Judge, but I think it is my passion towards injustices that lead me to that thought. My passion is better served on a grassroots level.
4) What was the best gift you ever received? Anything the kids would make in school, especially written in their words.
5) What is your favorite movie? So many, but for a guaranteed laugh I would say Austin Powers (guilty pleasure)
6) Who is the person who inspired you the most? My Mother.
7) What is your favorite dessert? Lemon Curd Cake from the Night Kitchen Bakery in Chestnut Hill, PA.
8) What is your favorite quote? I have many, but this is one I always come back to for some reason. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” Martin Luther King
9) What do you do for relaxation? Listening to music, walking & surfing the net.
10) What is your favorite remembered scent/smell from childhood? Homemade gravy simmering on the stove.
11) If you could be a character in a book, who would you choose to be? I would like to be the character that is most recognized. In other words…the complete opposite of how I view myself.
