We’re halfway there. Halfway through the voting period for the 2012 Phillips Benefit Brew contest that LPBC is a part of. In some ways it seems longer, as I’ve been on quite the mission to spread the word about this contest, posting and reminding and posting again in all the places I can think of online. Stepping outside of it all and jumping, for a moment, back into my past (somewhat cynical) self and thinking how potentially irritating this might come across. And that’s fine. I totally get it. But back to my present (perhaps more enlightened) self, inside of me there is this burning ball of passion that I have never felt before. It’s fueling me to do everything in my power to support and advocate for the newest little man in my life. And at this moment, this contest is a part of that. So…forgive me in advance, but I’ll continue to post and remind everyone to vote until November 18th. The winning organization will be announced on December 1st (the day of our LPBC Christmas Party…coincidence or…???).
I’ve also been wanting to say this for a few days now. It’s been a crazy week. With launching this blog, after months of thought, debate and hesitation. And promoting the Phillips Benefit Brew contest and witnessing the amazing support from friends and family and other internet strangers friends. It’s been a bit overwhelming; one week ago today…hopping online and checking out the blog stats and being in shock at the numbers. And then checking a few more times as the day and night went on and seeing the hits creep up into quadruple digits for just that day. Wow. I also received many messages from friends near and far, and I apologize if I haven’t got back to you yet…but I will. Thank you everyone for your kind words, encouragement and support. It means more than you know!
Enjoying the sunny, fall days while we can…knowing the rain is coming. I might have to try some more pictures this afternoon. Maybe they will look at me this time.
And now my (lukewarm) cup of coffee awaits, along with my post-swimming lessons (tired!) girl for some snuggles on the couch and a movie while little bro has his nap.
