today I got very unexpectantly nominated for the Liebster Award thanks to the adorable Susie! By the way, you should check out her blog, it's amazing! I really like the handknitted cardigan she did!
So what is the Liebster Award? Yeah, I was totally asking myself that same question and was wondering about the name also!
Then I headed over to Susie and - tadad - it's a wonderful idea plus Liebster is a German word... kinda embarrassing that I, as noticeably German, wasn't even thinking that Liebster could be a German word.
So what does Liebster mean?
Well, first of all, that's how I call my boyfriend (just sometimes, the preferred word for him is actually Schatzi) and than second does it mean sweetest, nicest, kindest, dearest, beloved, lovely, pleasant, kind, valued, cute and endearing! It really is such a nice word and literally it also means very close by one's heart!
But what is the amazing idea behind Liebster Award?

So actually I'm still studying at university and trying to figure out with what I want to make my money with...
