I have been nominated for the Liebster Award. What is that? It is a shout out/meet and greet for bloggers. It is a great way to find new blogs and learn a little more about some of your favorites. This was a lot of fun for both of us to fill out! Since this blog is run by both of us, both of us will answer the questions. Please make sure to check out all of the blogs we have nominated!

Thank you so very much to Such a Lively Life for nominating us!! Please be sure to visit their blog as well!

- Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you.
- Give eleven random facts about yourself.
- Nominate eleven blogs that you think are deserving of the award (that have less than 200 followers.. although I follow so few blogs I nominated without even looking at the numbers!)

  3. I had to tell you again how honored I/we are to have you nominate us for the Leibster award. I love meeting the people who are doing the same things we are and have a common goal and achievements in mind. How exciting. I really like what you guys are doing -the next generation carrying on family traditions. Keeping those memories alive and paying tribute to your hard working ancestors. You would think this homesteading thing is a new idea by the movement of go green these days -so many people forget or just don't realize that this was a way life for those before them. I look forward to keeping up with you and the happenings around your place. The post on our blog answering your questions and with our nominees will be up on Friday. Thanks again for the nomination.
