Congratulations is one of my favorite words. I especially enjoy celebrating the good news of friends and family. This week, in particular, several of my online friends have shared about some of their personal accomplishments that I’m happy about for them. I want you (my reader friends) to know my online friends, so please go and check out their sites. On that note, a special, “Congratulations!” to…
-Beth Feldman: My dear friend Beth unveiled BeyondPR Group, a full-service public relations consulting firm. Beth is one of my favorite people and (most importantly regarding this news) she does wonderful PR work.
-Jennifer Perillo: One of my all-time favorite food bloggers, Jennifer has a cookbook that is coming out in March. In addition to being an all around wonderful person, she is an inspirational food writer and recipe creator. In addition to her blog, Jennifer is the food editor at Working Mother magazine. She is the real deal. A special “congrats” is in order because her upcoming book Homemade with Love: Simple Scratch Cooking from In Jennie’s Kitchen is already #27 in Books > Cookbooks, Food & Wine > Special Occasions > Seasonal on Amazon.com! How cool is that?! (I will be pre-ordering this book on February 1st. I would order it now, but I’ve already blown through my blogging budget for this month!) You will definitely want to add this cookbook to your personal collection too.
-Krystel Hudson-Spell: I have never actually met Krystel in person. An Army wife, she is currently based in North Carolina. I don’t even remember how we connected online. I just know that I like her. She’s honest, funny and opinionated (but not rude…I’m not a fan of rude people). She also reminds me of the unique challenges and sacrifices that the families of those who serve in the military face. My father, brother and nephew were all Army men, so I appreciate what military men and their families give up in order to ensure the safety of our nation! Anyway, Krystal is going to be a part of a new HLN show called Raising America. Launching on February 4th, the show will share the news with a focus on parents and families. See a little promo…
Some of my other favorites who will be participating in this new show include Lamar and Ronnie Tyler and Liz Gumbinner. You can see the full list of participating bloggers on the Welcome Raising America post at HLN. I will be watching the first show on February 4th. Consider joining in.
In any event, “Congratulations!” to all.
