Now this is something we certainly didn’t expect! Cupcakes and Popcorn was nominated for a blog-award! I’m sure to most people this might not seem as much, but we’re both girls who rarely get to be nominated for something, so you can forgive our enthusiasm! So a big, humongous thank you to a great online friend and an even greater follower, Leesha, for nominating us!

Here’s the write-up of the award:

“The LITWA was invented in 2012 by Barbara Matteo, a fellow blogger who publishes posts about women’s creativity, spirituality and issues affecting the female gender on the blog idealisticrebel. The blog award’s full title is in fact “Being a Light in the World Award.”

Barbara created the LITWA to celebrate those wonderful people in our world who spread light, love, hope and peace in the name of humanity. Bloggers receiving this award are encouraged to continue promoting these virtues and work as a force of peace and light in the world, touching their readers’ hearts and making a difference in their lives, no matter how small. The award has as its background a scene of a beach taken at sunset with holidaymakers enjoying themselves. This picture was taken by Barbara herself. Just as the sun in the picture brings light and sustenance to the earth and is the reason why any living thing can exist on our planet in the first place, the LITWA is a gift to those bloggers who help shine the light into other people’s worlds, giving them sustenance, hope and happiness through the venerable dialogue of blogging.

The LITWA has the following rules for nominees to follow:

1. Thank the person who gives you the award;
2. Spread this award around to the people who you know who are doing this work, so that the work continues and the light is spread;
3. Let your nominees know of their nomination;
4. Never give up on your fellow human beings.”

That being said, let’s give you the list of the blogs we nominate, shall we?
