First of all...Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I appreciate everyone who is taking time to read this :) I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the fiance and out of town friends. I am now enjoying my long weekend while I dive back into the blogging world.
Yeah, I was nominated for the Liebster Award! As always, at first, I was a little skeptical, but this is a great way for me to meet other new bloggers, so yeah again! This award is given to new bloggers with 200 followers or less (that's me). I was nominated by Rae at Minful Rambles...thank you! You should check out her blog - lots of great tips and ideas. I'm already loving it!
And the rules are:
1. Post 11 random things about yourself.
2. Answer the questions the nominator set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for your nominees.
4. Choose 11 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers to nominate and link them to your post.
5. Leave a comment on this post if you were nominated so I can learn more about you and see who you nominate.
My 11 randoms:
1. I am getting married in April 2013...can't wait!

3. I'm in the process of completing my National Boards Certification this year!
4. I have traveled to over 20 countries in the last 5 years with high school students. This has been a true blessing!
