A Look Back At 2014

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wasn’t originally planning on doing a year in review recap since I didn’t start A Couple of Dashes until August, but after reading a few by other bloggers (Lake Shore Runner, Meals and Miles and Run Eat Repeat), I decided I would be sad if I didn’t have one to look back at next year. My year was filled with some crazy highs and lows.

Liebster Award

Hey there!

I’ve got exciting news for you! I was nominated by Haley at Running with Diapers for this lovely little award. Since I love awards and am always down for a survey this was right up my alley! Thanks Haley!

After doing some research to find out more about the history of this award, I found out that it’s actually more like a chain letter, than an award, in the sense that those who are nominated, must pass it on. It’s still an honor to receive though since you must be nominated by someone in the blogging community to participate. The Liebster Award is an award presented to new bloggers with a growing audience as a way to spread the word about up-and-coming bloggers and welcome them into the blogging community with supportive and open arms! (Side note: The word “liebster” is actually German for “dearest” or “favorite.”) How sweet!
