Aw, Shucks

So, I've been seeing posts all over the book blogosphere announcing nominees for different BBAW awards. The excitement is palpable. I love it. True, I may have been the teensiest, tiniest bit green-eyed, but really, I've been so happy for all of you. I mean, I would have been delighted to have been nominated for best giveaways ('cuz I've been rocking them this year), or best design (you gotta admit, it's cute), or best anything at all. But, no. Nothing. I sniffed a little, then got over myself (well, kind of). So, imagine my surprise when an email arrived in my inbox today reminding me to submit 5 of my best pieces to the judging committee. Huh? Turns out, I never received the first email letting me know I've been nominated in the category of Best Writing. Can I just tell you that I'm thrilled beyond words? I work hard on this little ole blog of mine and I'm honored - not to mention surprised - that anyone clicks over here at all. So, thank you, thank you for this. It means so much to me!


  1. Congratulations! That is quite a tribute to your gift for thinking and writing.

  2. What a nice surprise for you - Hooray!

  3. Seriously, I would have been shocked had you not been nominated for something! Congrats!

  4. Can I brag and say, "I taught her everything she knows?" Not hardly!! We're so proud of you, Honey. You deserve this. Let us know the outcome. Be sure to send the one just previous to this one!! Love You

  5. Well, I always do enjoy reading your posts! Congratulations on the nomination Susan.

  6. Congratulations! I'm so excited for you.

  7. I saw it coming all along... you are more than deserving!

  8. Thanks, everybody! I appreciate the kind words.


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
