Happy Labor Day weekend! What do you have planned for the weekend? We have a weekend planned full with family and friends!
Every year Labor Day comes around, I get excited for fall... probably because it's the start of September. I start thinking of pumpkin patches, cooler evenings and the leaves turning. And I start longing to get all my fall decorations out!
Well, you're probably wondering why I'm posting again so soon... along with wishing you a happy weekend, I have some blog news I thought I'd share with you.
It makes me slightly uncomfortable, not because I'm not absolutely thrilled, but because it's kind of hard for me to put the spotlight on myself. This week I was notified that my little blog was nominated and chosen as a finalist for the Country Living Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards in the lifestyle category.
What an honor... Country Living has always been my favorite magazine and my go-to source for inspiration in my home. I've subscribed for years and read it even before I had a home of my own. So many homes they have shared have influenced the decorating and renovations in our farmhouse. It's a guarantee I'll have read the magazine front to back the day it comes in the mail and often I'm trying a new recipe the next day. I can hardly believe they would visit my blog, much less like it!
Anyway, each category will have a judged winner. But there's also a Reader's Choice award for the blog that receives the most votes. Now, believe me, I have no illusions about winning either award (there are some amazing blogs chosen) and I know your time is precious, but if you happen to have the time and would like to vote for Keeping it Cozy, you can click the following button and vote daily between now and September 17.
Thank you so much for your visits, encouraging comments and friendship! It means more to me than you'll ever know.
Have a wonderful weekend!
