What I'm wearing to the awards



I'm just kidding. I'm just honored to be nominated for the Liebster award. The below picture is an old picture of what I wore when I participated in my friend's costume fashion show. He loves designing ball gowns so he designed every single piece I was wearing (including the mask) and did my hair and make up!



Today's post is dedicated to the Liebster award - an award that is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers! From what I've read, Liebster means "sweetness" in German. And I'm so honored to be nominated by CatherineBelle's blog! Definitely check her out when you get a chance:

  2. That's so impressive! 4 languages. I was terrible at Spanish and French. Some stuff stuck but I couldn't hold a conversation if I had to...

  5. Thank you SO much for the nomination. It's so humbling and definitely an honor. And it was really nice to read more about you. As a linguist, I've always admired and love to learn more about people who can speak several languages.

    P.S. I'm replying a bit late to this post, but I have also read your most recent one and I send you my condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this moment.

    1. Hi Jenny, it is my honor to nominate others also. I've always wonder how others learn so many other languages also. I went to school for mine.

      Thank you for kind words and dropping by.
