Get Out the Vote

So, here it is, folks. I decided to enter small measure in Country Living magazine’s 1st ever Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards. Out of the variety of categories entrants can select, I chose “Green.”


There’s no big reward involved for the winner, aside from a shout-out in the magazine and a trip to the awards ceremony in NYC. This blog (and my books) is simply my labor of love, and I really, truly love what I do, so I figured, if you love something, why not share the love, compounding it in the process? Also, I’m totally digging Country Living’s content and style recently. It highlights the best of what’s considered “country” today without the customary preciousness or cuteness, which I vibe with. Anyone else out there feeling me?

I’m not going to beg, or plead, or grovel for your vote. I’ll simply leave it at, I’ve entered, and, if you like what I do around here, and you feel so inclined, you can nominate me here.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone. I know that most of you are sweating like beasts under a sweltering sun (except for you, Pacific northwest, which I’m currently eyeing with a very, very green eye!). Do whatever you’ve got to do to keep cool, please.

We don’t have a.c. in our house, aside from a window unit in the bedroom (because hot babies do not make for sleeping babies!), so I know firsthand just how rough it is. Stay hydrated, find a creek or lake or river or pond or ocean or kiddie pool (our route!) and get your chill on, eat ice cream, make gazpacho (or the Cucumber, Dill & Yogurt Soup in my Home Dairy book!) and take it nice and slow and easy!!!
