Hey y’all I have exciting news. I’ve been nominated for The Liebster Award! The awesome angry bushbaby nominated me; go check out their blog. From what I can tell, this award is for small blogs in order to build community, gain recognition and simply to spread some joy throughout the blogosphere.

My original focus for my blog was to share about my adventures in parenting but over the last year I’ve been on a journey of self discovery regarding my gender identity. During that time I also met and began a long distance relationship with a remarkable human who lives almost 4000km away. My blog has become a space where I do share about parenting but also about being transgender and the ups and downs of being in an LDR.

Here are the rules:

1. Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you and display the award logo.
2. Answer 11 questions that the blogger gives you.
3. Nominate 11 blogs that you think are deserving of the award.
4. Create 11 questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Let the bloggers know of their nomination!

Here are my answers to angrybushbaby’s questions.
