Yesterday I received a call from the San Antonio Current. I thought they must be calling regarding one of my clients but was completely caught off guard when the caller said, “No, I’m actually calling about you and your BLOG!” I was completely confused! The caller excitedly began to tell me that I was awarded as one of the finalists of the San Antonio Current Best Bloggers awards (2nd place) in their Best of San Antonio poll! I was beyond surprised and couldn’t help myself…I just started crying! I probably sounded like the biggest idiot!

After everything that has been going on in the past week this joyful news was just so welcomed. To all of you who voted I want to tell you a HUGE, GIGANTIC THANK YOU! I’m truly honored. I also want to congratulate my friend, Christina Coker from Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget, and Stephanie Guerra from Puro Pinche who were the other two finalists!

But there is something more important that I want to tell you. San Antonio is incredibly blessed to have one of the best blogging communities (and I don’t say that lightly). The talent in this city is absolutely incredible! Every single one of them should be on this list! When I moved to San Antonio I was immediately welcomed and befriended by them. This morning when I woke up….THEY were the first people to congratulate me. When I was going through surgery THEY were lifting me up with prayers. THEY were sending me emails asking if they could watch Luke, bring food, or do anything else I might need. That is just who they are…TRULY GOOD PEOPLE. If you have some time I highly recommend checking out all these awesome San Antonio blogs (If I missed you I apologize. Let me know so I can add you!) Thank you all for inspiring and teaching me every day!
