I won the Liebster Award!


Feeling grateful that my hard work is being recognized across the internet. I would like to thank Amanda from Ambitiously, Amanda for noticing my efforts and nominating me for the Liebster Award. You can check out her blog at Ambitiously, Amanda. Amanda’s blog is a lifestyle blog that focuses on her experiences at University. I love the aesthetics of her blog!


The Liebster Award was created years ago by bloggers for bloggers. It is an award recognizing small, up and coming bloggers with the goal of welcoming them into the blogging community, getting to know the new blogger and spreading awareness of their blogging efforts. As a way of getting to know the new blogger, the Liebster Award requires you to answer a few questions when you accept the award.


1. Tell us about your blog.
I started my blog shortly after I found out that I was being laid-off. After working for the same school for over five years and now faced with the unknown, I started the blog to document my new endeavors of finding my new niche in life. I also wanted to share my adventures in parenthood and how I manage to live within my means by saving money.
2. What has been the most rewarding experience your blog has brought you?
I think losing a job and the stability from that job can be a stressful experience. Instead of focusing on the negatives of this experience, I have refocused my efforts into this blog to be more productive. So far, I’m staying positive during this life changing situation.
3. What is the best piece of advice you can give your readers?
The possibilities are endless but you don’t know unless you try. Take risks and enjoy the ride!
4. What is your favorite travel destination and why?
I love the White Mountains in New Hampshire. It’s close to home, affordable, the views are amazing, it’s great all year round, and I love nature!
5. Where would you love to go in the world?
I would like to someday visit the Mayan ruins in Mexico and experience Thailand.
6. If someone were visiting you town, what would you suggest they do?
Go to the beach then grab a cup of chowdah and a lobstah roll downtown.
7. What makes you deliriously happy?
Making memories with my family and getting a crazy good deal.
8. What is your guilty pleasure?
I’m addicted to teen shows and novels. Teen wolf, The 100, Vampire diaries, The Hunger Games, Twilight Series, Harry Potter, I LOVE THEM ALL!!!
9. What is a difficult obstacle you have had to overcome?
I was a special education student with a severe expressive and receptive language disability. I worked really hard to overcome this disability by graduating high school, going to college and becoming certified as a special education teacher myself.
10. What are you most grateful for in your life?
My family and friends.
