Nominated for Liebster Award!


The Nourished Seedling was nominated for a Liebster Award, which is so cool to receive as it helps bloggers get to share their site and highlight other bloggers and sites new to the scene. Thank you Nourish and Nestle for the nomination!! I did a little Googling to figure out how it all works, which seems to be the norm around this award. It looks like there are various “rules”, but overall a consensus surrounds these guidelines shown below. A note - although, I am usually a stickler for rules, some of my nominees are well over the follower limit, but I think they are off to a pretty good start (whenever that may have been). Still worth getting a nomination!


So, here it goes.

11 Random Facts About Me

  • I am an only child – not the spoiled kind, the overly responsible kind :)

  • I went to school originally to be a lawyer.

  • I love playing Monopoly.

  • I married a man I actually went to high school with (but we never dated then).

  • I lived with a family in France while studying there for a summer.

  • I am probably more of an introvert than an extrovert.

  • I love to read.

  • I tried to wash off my freckles with lemon juice when I was little.

  • My husband is one of the people I most admire.

  • One tv show that gives me comfort is Murder She Wrote (probably because my mom watched it, and it reminds me of her).

  • Learning to garden has really helped me work through my fear of thunderstorms.

Greece, Italy & Poland (because of scenery, food and ancestry)

2. What’s the next skill you’d like to acquire?

Becoming fluent in Spanish

My kiddos dancing.

9. What would you do if you won the lottery?

Travel more with the family, buy a house with a bigger garden space, open a book store, figure out a good charity – maybe start one.

The ability to lose myself in the amount of time I can spend on it, whether on the site itself, technology, content, social media, photography, researching, networking, troubleshooting…I could go on!

Computer scientist – just for a week.
