Blog Love - Liebster Award

Update and bumped the date. One more award: so great! Thanks to everybody who nominated me and participated! Love you all!
Exciting! I've learnt a new word today. And it is a word of LOVE, so I really LOVE it!


Liebster, German, Beloved, Dearest, Sweetheart, Darling. The other forms are: lieb, lieber, am liebsten... And I LOVE the translation of this word into Italian; it just sounds so pretty: Carissimo.

If you are still reading it, thank you so much, and you are probably wondering now what I am in love with at the end of the day. I am in love with all the Mom bloggers for your great info, advices, support, encouragement, everything! Thank you for being you, and for helping me to survive being a mother - LOL.
