My Liebster Moment :) :) :)

It was a boring holiday. In the afternoon, my phone beeped showing an email
notification. Nowadays, I get very excited to read mails. The reason is that these days, apart from 'in-the-face' mails from Flipkart and Tradus flaunting their merchandize at lowest cost, my email does bring in mails from this blog whenever any new comment appears on any of my posts. Hurriedly, I opened it. And yes, it was from my dearest blog. I opened it excitedly to read what new comment has appeared on my post ‘Halfway’.

And there it was. Making my boring day, a happy and cheerful one. It was from Sreeja Praveen who blogs at The Alter Ego. She had nominated my blog for ‘Liebster Award’. Sheer happiness is what I could define my state at that time to be. After all, who doesn’t like awards ;) And Firsts?? They are always special. Aren’t they?

And then, lovely Sreesha Divakaran who blogs at Petrichor and Clouds (yes, that’s a beautiful name for the blog, isn’t it?) posted a little gift note on my facebook timeline also awarding me a Liebster. It was ‘Wohooo’ moment for me.

For those of you who don’t know what Liebster is, here it goes:

Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely. It is like a chain-award thing that bloggers give to fellow bloggers & is for motivating new/recent/lesser known blogs with less than 200 followers.
So, here goes the list of rules.

1.   Post the award on your blog.
2.   Thank the blogger who presented this award and link back to their blog.
3.   Write 10 random facts about yourself.
4.   Nominate 10 bloggers who you feel deserve this award and who have less than 200 followers.
5.   Answer the questions posted by the presenter and ask your nominees 10 questions. 

And before I begin answering questions posed by Sreeja and Sreesha, I would like to thank both of you for considering me for this nomination. Hugs for both of you <3<3

5.   Which quality do you admire the most in your parents?
