Liebster Award

What is the LIEBSTER Award?
The Liebster award is an award given from one new blogger to another. It is presented to new bloggers who have been around for less than two years and have less than 1,000 followers. How it works is, a blogger who has been nominated receives the opportunity to be recognized by other bloggers and can also nominate bloggers of their own choice. It’s a fun way to support each other in the online blogging realm and be given the chance to be recognized by other bloggers and readers.
I was nominated by the fabulous blogger over at The Mom Trane so be sure to check out her blog and you can also find her on Instagram at @themomtrane! Karly is a gorgeous mama living in South Florida with her hubby and little boy! Follow her! 

As part of the Leibster Award, Karly has asked me a few questions to answer so here goes!

1.) What inspired you to start blogging? 
Blogging has always been a passion of mine! I have launched a few blogs and they have all been duds just because life gets so busy and things change, people change! But I have finally found something I am passionate about and that is my kids, my family, and my camera! I love capturing life's moments and telling stories to go along with it which is why I started this blog. I am a step-parent and yes I will be having one of my own in the future but I wanted this to be a place where parents can come and read and relate and feel motivated and comfortable! 

2.) What was your typical Friday night pre-baby(ies)? 
OH GOD.. do I HAVE to answer this question, Karly?! #monkeycoveringeyesemoji 
Haha.. Friday nights before kids.. were crazy.. partying, bar-hopping, beer-ponging.. just living life and being a young/single twenty-something. I did college right. There, I said it. Haha! 

3.) What is your typical Friday night now? 
Don't get me wrong, I love my beer and hanging out with friends still. But my typical Friday night now is usually at the indoor soccer field (because coed indoor is Friday nights) or when I don't have soccer it's on the couch or in bed with my husband. Literally my favorite thing in the world is being in bed before the sun goes down. I AM SO EXCITING YOU GUYS! #imtired 

4.) What is your dream vacation spot? 
ON the beach! Anywhere with the beach. That is probably the thing I miss the most about California. The beach. I took it for granted when I lived there and now I am kicking myself for not spending every waking minute there. 

5.) Have you had success connecting with other bloggers via Social Media?
I would say so, yes! I am in several blogging groups on Facebook where we all connect, lift each other up, help each other grow and its great!

6.) What topic do you enjoy blogging about the most?
My kids. 100%. They are hilarious and crazy and a handful.. They give me weeks worth of content to share in a day. I love it. 

7.) What is your greatest fear?
The dark and being home alone. Yes, I am 27 going on 28 and I HATE being home alone. One night when the kids were with their mom and Drew was on duty I went and slept at my sister-in-laws house! You couldn't pay me to sleep there alone! Haha

8.) How has motherhood changed you?
Motherhood has changed me in SO many ways.. You're no longer just responsible for yourself but you are responsible for other little lives too. It's taught me not just to say what I want to be or say what I want done but to actually BE and act like the example. Motherhood has taught me the feeling of literally doing anything and everything for somebody out of love. I would do anything and everything for my kids to be safe and successful and healthy and happy.

9.) If you could time travel - what era would you like to visit. 
THE FUTURE! (because I'm impatient like that.) Who's with me!? 

10.) What do you enjoy more - movies or books?
Honestly, I do have an equal love for both. When I find a REALLY good book, I literally can not put it down. I just don't have any time to read! And when I do have time to read it's usually when I should be sleeping. Like at night. Haha!
