The Liebster Award

Bump day icon

Last week we were nominated for the Liebster Award by Cassie at Cute Tot on the Block, which was incredibly exciting because, well…we were nominated for an award!

Now, what is the Liebster Award? The word “liebster” is a German word meaning beloved. And so this award is a way for bloggers to get to know each other, introduce them to the blogger community, and then return the favor to other new bloggers. We answer questions by the blogger who nominated us and then nominate others and ask them our own set of questions. Since we can’t nominate the person who nominated us it gives us the opportunity to share with you a few of our favorite fresh new blogs.

Bre: I’d be a hairdresser or a make-up artist
Ree: Wildlife photographer

7. Who is your celebrity doppelganger?
Bre: I’ve only been told this a few times and only when I wear my hair a certain way, so I don’t think she counts as a doppelgänger, but I’ve heard Alyssa Milano.
Ree: Anne Hathaway. I’ve been told I look like her more times than I can count. I call myself the “poor man’s Anne,” lol!

8. Who inspires you?

Bre: Since nearly everything in our home is from Timothy Oulton or Restoration Hardware, I’d say it’s industrial modernism meets rustic antiques.

11. What do you hope to cross off your to-do list this year?

    I just stumbled across y’all’s blog, and I am so happy to have found y’all! I love surveys like this because I love getting to know the blogger. I would love to go to Africa one day too. I have wanted to go on a mission trip there for quite a while now, so I am hoping my husband and I can go one day.
