I just wanted to write to say: thank you.
I found out this morning that my little website won Best Food Blog — Theme — in the Food Blog Awards, 2005. Gosh! This moves me, deeply, and makes me more than a little giddy.
Of course, I’m pleased for myself, but keeping the blog is its own reward. There have been so many connections with wonderful people, sweet stories, and wonderful surprises since I started this site in July. Not to mention a lot of great meals. I’m certain that keeping this site for all of you has spurred me onto greater heights of cooking than I would have reached had it just been me, alone, in the kitchen. You have all been here with me as I write. You’re welcome here any time. Mostly, I’m thrilled for all of you who can’t eat gluten either. Thank you for all your emails and comments, saying that I have inspired you and pushed you to eating better food. That, for me, is the best reward. That’s why I’m here. And with this award, it’s really gratifying to have the way we need to eat feel more recognized in this society.
Thank you, all of you, for your votes. And for listening to me prattle about the fears and exultations of this process. I’m eternally yours.
