Blue Ribbon Blogger?

I’d had a very long, bad day on Wednesday for various reasons — mostly involving two separate people that wasted my entire day by not showing up for scheduled appointments. Couple that with a hurricane and not having internet access for 4-1/2 days and I was one grumpy human being.

Then I got an email on the one remaining device functioning capable of receiving cyber news that I had been selected as a finalist for Country Living’s Blue Ribbon Blogger award. My twins were with me when I read it and even though they didn’t know why I was hooping and hollering, they were as excited as I was! That tiny little email on my iPhone screen made up for all of the bad things that had happened that day.

My sister had told me about the contest a month or two ago and said I should enter. I filled out the entry and sent it in, but it’s been such a busy summer that I really hadn’t given it another thought. I just couldn’t believe that my little blog had been chosen by Country Living! Then, when I finally got my internet back yesterday and discovered that I’d been chosen out of over 700 entries I was truly humbled. Twenty-four people out of over 700 were chosen as finalists in 7 categories, and I am one of 4 finalists in the “Lifestyle” category. Wow. Somebody actually liked my blog. Thank you. Whoever you are. Thank you.

Oh, and if you want to vote for my blog to win, the “People’s Choice” award voting will be going on until September 15th. They say you can vote once a day.

Click the link below to get to the page listing the finalists in seven different categories. If you click the “Vote” button on the upper right of that page it will take you to the voting.

Thanks for your support! I’ll keep you all posted!
