The New York City Marathon and the Liebster Blog Award

Well this is turning out to be an exciting week for me personally and in the blogging world. On a personal level it is only 3 days until the gun goes off for the 42nd New York City marathon and I will be running it the day before (mmmm...clear my throat, cough cough, get up the nerve to be proud to say) my 50th birthday! But really the NYC marathon is the greatest race in the world and it is an incredible feeling to be participating in the same event as some of the world's most elite runners along with a few celebs like Apolo Anton Ohno and Al Roker. Maybe I'll be able to grab an autograph or two!! 

And in the blogging world I am simply beside myself today as I was awarded something I have never heard of until a few short hours ago! It is the Liebster Blog Award and it was bestowed upon me by Ms. A (Amanda) over at the creative blog Between the Rafters.  As it was explained in Ms. A's post, this award is given to up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers and of which have stood out from the crowd. Liebster is a German word meaning dear, sweet, kind, nice, good, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing and welcome. What a wonderful way to compliment some one's body of work! And what I love about this award is that it comes from another blogger just like me! To be honest in the beginning as I was just getting started with this blog I wondered if anyone else beside my own mother and a small handful of good friends ever took a look at 21 Rosemary.  So I thank you Ms. A. as I am not only honored to be given this award but very flattered to have been chosen by you. Please take the time to check out Between the Rafters, you will be ahhhh-mazed at some of Ms. A's incredible creations!

Now as a recipient of the Liebster I am charged with the task of choosing 5 blogs to give this award to, therefore it may be a few days before I announce my selections. There are so many new and beautifully done blogs out there just waiting to be noticed!
