First, a little boasting. We were notified on Friday that our blog was the July winner of “Food Stories Award for Excellence in Story Telling“. Back in May, 2012, I wrote a blog post that we had been nominated by Pop the Bubbly for the Illuminating Blogger Award. I was quite excited (so was Yes!Chef!) because this award is not just about blogging recipes or showing pretty pictures of food. It is about telling stories and not necessarily just about food. I am all about telling stories…Just ask my children.
I checked out the competition several times since I was nominated, and they are a great group of bloggers. In fact, I spent quite a bit of time perusing some of the entries. But then, life got in the way and I kind of forgot about it until we got the notification on Friday morning that we had won. Now, I can say: Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! Hazaah!
