And the Award goes to…..Piper’s Run!

Piper’s Run has won the Liebster Awards (blog award) thanks to Melissa a Mountain Missy: Living On Mountain Time. I’ve really enjoyed reading and staring at the beautiful photo’s that she posts on her blog – I’m talking jaw dropping, beautiful landscape (and family) photos. If you haven’t seen her blog, you really should check it out.

The best part about this award, is that I get to give it to 5 other bloggers that I follow!

“This award we’ve discovered is given to bloggers who inspire you and have less than 200 followers. The Liebster Award takes its name from the German word meaning ‘Beloved, Dearest or Favorite.’” –Quit the Cure (Lisa Ann)

Drum Roll ……………………………

1. Jenn @ Run It My Way “A blog about my journey as a new(ish) runner, motivation, inspiration, goals and running gear”. Run It My Way is a great blog for those who want to learn a little more about running gear,  learn to run for beginners;  great resources and nutrition tips.  I also love that she’s a fellow Nova Scotian.

2. Jamie @ Don’t Forget the Cinnamon “Adding spice to a healthy life”. Jamie’s a college student who lives in Vermont (such a beautiful place – on my list of places to visit someday). Jamie blogs about vegetarian/vegan foods to make on a student budget. If you’re looking for a tasty recipe, check out her blog…AND she also blogs at Cheddar and Change  – busy lady!

She is a mom, music teacher and she never goes anywhere without her chucks (otherwise known as Chuck Taylors made by Converse). Heather’s blog is great – I love the “What’s in the Box” series and she has some pretty informative posts on raising a child and some delicious recipes too!
