Several months ago, I received an email that looked very suspiciously like spam. I almost deleted it but decided to read on. The title said something about being nominated for a food and drink award. The email message that I did not need to do anything and that the nominations committee would take care of the next steps, so all I had to do was accept my nomination.
So I did that and sat back and waited. Several weeks later, I got a follow-up email that I somehow won my category! Wild, right? The nominating committee bucketed me in a cake category and I won the Food & Drink award for “Most Inspiring Baking Blogger of 2023.”
I honestly don’t know how prestigious this award is, or if everyone who nominates gets the win. But it’s still pretty cool to receive something like this after blogging for 12 years!
