Thank You! I Could Just Kiss You!

more doughnuts please

Thank You!  Thank You!  Thank You!

I could just kiss you… or eat this doughnut.

You did it!   Your votes landed me a nomination as Best New Blog for the 2009 Bloggies.

I  can’t even begin to tell you how exciting this is for me.  I’ll try.

I started this blog one year ago this month.  I’m a girl who loves to bake, take pictures and tell stories.  It turns out there’s a way to put all of those loves in one place.  I’ve put so much love and energy into this space, so much of myself, that it almost didn’t matter if anyone came to read it.  But here you are, everyday.  Geez!  I just love you for it!

Thanks for being here.  Thanks for responding to what I do.  Thanks for loving pancakes and baked apples as much as I do.  Thanks for the nomination.  Really.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

If you’re feeling frisky enough to go cast your Bloggie votes, don’t forget the other awesome blogs in other categories.  I love Smitten Kitchen for Best Food Blog, and The Superficial is totally a guilty pleasure for Best Gossip Blog.

Me?  I’m towards the end of the line in the Best New Blog category.

Vote?  Vote!

I was also nominated for Best Food Blog Writing by the Well Fed Network.  It looks like Deb at Smitten Kitchen is going to run away with that win… and I think that’s the way the world should be.  Fact.

Please accept my crazy, honest, giddy and sincere thanks.
