Afro Vegan Chick's latest honor.
Happy April Fool's Day! Play any pranks on people? Did you get pranked?
Well, today is no joke. I've received an adorable prestigious memento and cannot be happier. These are always fun- including a new badge AND answering all kinds of questions which allows readers to get to further know their favorite bloggers as well as learn about other blogs to find delicious recipes that cater specific lifestyles. 
I would first and foremost love to kindly thank Emma of Bake Then Eat. She's nominated AfroVeganChick for this cutesy little sweet pink frosted Liebster Award and I appreciate her thoughtfulness to include my blog in a list of 11. It's just so wonderful that people care enough to not only read my blog, but take the time out to fully show their online support of it!

  • No tag backs.
