This past summer, as they watched a few beautiful swans swimming along the shoreline, the kids learned about how in nature, animals naturally support each other.  One of the swans was hurt, so an on-looker tried to help pull it out of the water.  In an instant, the other swans came to fend off, what they thought was a perpetrator.  The hurt swan was whisked away.

In German, the word "liebster" is derived from "liebe" which means love, friend or dearest.  I was recently awarded the Liebster award, which spotlights up-and-coming blogs who are still in their early stages (less than 200 followers), ready to blossom into beautiful swans.

So, first, I must thank Janny from Que Linda for awarding me this lovely award.  She has great ideas on her blog, and her pumpkin pie ice cream is something that should be on everyone's must try list.  

Now I get to pass this forward and spread the's my Liebster award recipients, who have simply  great ideas and beautiful  creations, to help us enjoy life now.   Please visit a new friend and support their efforts.
