On Blog Awards (Plus I’ve Been Nominated!)

Over the past couple of years, I've been nominated for a handful of those circulating blogger awards (Liebster, Sunshine, and Versatile blogger, to name a few).

Wanaka doesn't make it onto everyone's itineraries for New Zealand - but it was one of the first to go onto mine.
