My heart is full today!
After waking up next to my love,
making coffee, snuggling with my pups on the couch,
and gathering more inspiration for the decorating overhaul I'm currently conducting in our home... I got TWO sweet surprises from some of my blogging soul sisters!
First, adorable Erin of CaptivatedbyGrace not only mentioned Coastal Heart, Country Soul as one of her "newest inspirations" in her recent post, but she also awarded us the "Liebster Award"!
The Liebster Blog Award is given to up and coming bloggers
who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is a German word meaning...
dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kindly, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
Yep, there she is...just a bit to the left of this sentence.
Thank you SO much Erin!!
I am honored!
Now I just have to pass along the love!
Today I give the Liebster Award to:
My new friend Nicole, aka MissusRobie!
She's crafty, she's cute, and a great blogger to boot!
AND she also happens to be the source of today's second surprise:
I was part of her sponsor feature posted today!!
Thank you Nicole!!
So excited to be sponsoring each other this month and for the launch of your cute ear-warmer line!
Seriously...go check out her lovely items!
You better believe I ordered one of those babies in record time!
~I am so excited for it to come in the mail~
I'll post photos a.s.a.p!
For now, I leave you with this video of the one and only
One of my all-time favorite artists. She is as incredible live as she is on record and her songs have an raw, honest feel. This song in particular I could (and have) listened to over and over ... you know, just in case her back-up singer happens to go missing at her next concert and she pleas to the audience for someone to come up and help her out with those harmonies.
Brandi. I'm your girl.
Just don't turn the mic up too loud.
today's Monday's Music to My Ears:
Brandi Carlile, Way to You (live)
.*Love & Happiness to new friends and old today!*.
