I just received the Liebster Award from We Bless Your Heart.

This is a complete surprise.

From what I gather the rules for the Liebster Award have changed, depending on who gets it and gives it.
But, each involves time it involves sharing random facts, asking random questions, and sharing the Liebster Love.

So, here are my random answers to random questions.

 1.  Who or what is Liebster? In German, it is a sweetheart or beloved person.
