The Liebster Blog Award and Paying It Forward

Liebster - A German word meaning dearest or favorite. Sounds good to me!

I'd like to thank Ellie at The Boo the Bear and the goji berries for nominating me yet again for another blogging award; the Liebster Blog Award. Thank you, Ellie, for your continued support and helping to let me know people do enjoy reading my blog!

I read a few posts from past nominees and The Liebster Blog Award's origin is hard to track down, but it's obviously for up and coming, smaller blogs....like Just Add Cayenne.  I'm ok with my blog being small, the kind people that do frequent my posts and comment are wonderful enough.  Of course, we all dream of reaching out to the world and helping make thousands or millions of people choose a healthier lifestyle.

As a proud recipient of the Liebster Award, I have a few simple rules to follow:

1. Thank your nominator and post a link back.
2. Nominate 5 other blogs with less than 200 followers and post a comment on each blog letting them know they have been given the award.
3. Copy and paste the award onto your blog.

That's it, not much to it at all, but us smaller blogs always appreciate the recognition.  Seems like a perfect way to "pay it forward" in the vast blog world and I'm pleased to be a part of it. Thanks again, Ellie!

The "Fab Five" bloggers I am nominating are:

There are many blogs I read each day; some big, some small, but all entertaining. My five picks are bloggers who keep me coming back to read each day and ones that frequently read my posts too.  Thank you all for your great support and informative entertainment.  It's comforting to be part of an online community where others value healthy living just as I do.  Keep it up, bloggers, and congrats!

Happy Friday to all!  Do you have any big plans for the weekend? Maybe continued 4th of July celebrating?

Kelley and I took off Monday to, well, not go to work (duh), but also to hopefully go kayaking. I love kayaking, but Kelley's never been.  So wish us luck! Have a great weekend!


  1. Awesome, thank you! And thanks for sharing the links to these other blogs...can't wait to check them all out!

  2. Thank you so much! You seriously made my day! :)

  3. This is such a treat. Thank you so much, RC!!

  4. Thank You RC!! For this nomination and for the most versatile blogger award!! I will pass this on soon!
