Last Sunday morning, I woke up to the most wonderful surprise. Lauren from Stylelixir nominated me for the Liebster Award! Oftentimes, it is easy to feel a little insecure about putting yourself out there for the world to see; but when you get recognized by one of your peer, it eases your mind and lets you know you are doing something right. Thank you so much Lauren!
