The Liebster Award

Liebster Award Nomination
I have been nominated for the Liebster Award. What is that? It is a shout out/meet and greet for bloggers. It is a great way to find new blogs and learn a little more about some of your favorites. This was a lot of fun to participate in. Although Cheese Acres is a family farm, I do all the blogging, so I guess I will answer all the questions! Please be sure to check out all of the blogs I have nominated.

Thanks so much to Linn Acres for nominating us! Please be sure to visit their blog at

The Liebster Award is simple:
– Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you and display the award.
– Answer eleven questions that the blogger gives you.
– Give eleven random facts about yourself.
– Nominate eleven blogs that you think are deserving of the award (*that have less than 200 followers) Hopefully I didn’t nominate someone who has been nominated. If so you are free to pass!
– Let the bloggers know you nominated them.
– Give them eleven questions to answer.

*I tried very hard to search through blogs and check the number of followers. Some don’t have it posted and this became a time consuming task. I was hopping back and forth from blogger to word press to all over the place so I nominated those on WordPress who have frequented my blog and those with similar interests. They all have great pages! There were so many more I could have chosen as well!

Questions that were given to me:

1. Where are you from? I was actually born in North Carolina but I have lived most of my life in good ole South Georgia.
2. What is your favorite food or recipe? Favorite? I just like food, lol. Seriously, I love a good home cooked meal with peas, green beans, mashed potatoes, mustard greens, etc. good ole southern cooking!
3. Do you prefer summer or winter? Summer
4. Why did you start blogging? Good question. One day my husband said “next thing I know you’ll be blogging too” and I said no, I don’t have time for that, but the more I thought about it the more I thought it would help get word out about our business and I have a lot to say. 🙂
5. Is there anything you’d like to change in your life? Sure, mistakes I’ve made. I’d love to have a re-do.
6. What is your favorite holiday? Thanksgiving or Easter. I love them both.
