I am so grateful for all the attention given to Garden Betty since Country Living’s announcement. It was such a thrill to see myself on the front page of their website, right there with Paula Deen!
As that will probably be the only time Paula and I (because y’know, we’re on a first-name basis like that) share such exclusive web real estate, I had to save a screen capture to believe my own eyes.
Click on the front page feature, and it will take you straight to Country Living’s behind-the-scenes coverage of the awards ceremony and luncheon, “Inside the 2011 Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards.”
And just last week, the December/January 2012 issue of Country Living hit newsstands, with my mug appearing on page 12.
I am still a little shocked from all this fanfare, and it was high on my list of blessings on Thanksgiving Day.
But above all, thank you to my readers, both new and old. After such an amazing first year of blogging (can you believe Garden Betty just turned 1 on September 9, 2011?!), you inspire me to make my site even better in the coming year!
