A Where Wishes Win & A Heartfelt Thank You


I had a pretty special night last night. I attended the PR Slides & Littlewoods Ireland BOPS Awards night. You may have noticed that I got shortlisted and was pretty excited about it? I'll apologise now for all the 'vote for me' spamming - but as it happens - it was all worth it!

I'm grinning from ear to ear today. I've been grinning from ear to ear since yesterday evening actually. Even on my own. On the bus home. Like a total weirdo. I think I was probably even smiling in my sleep, because:

Last night, I WON the Blog and Online Publishing Award for 'Best Lifestyle and Family Read'.

Wow... Even typing that out feels weird. And wonderful. And I can still hardly believe it's true. But here I am with the award and a look of utter shock and delight on my face, so it must have happened!


First order of business, though, is to thank YOU. It wouldn't have happened without you. I'm so utterly grateful to each and every single person who took the time to vote for me, because in truth, it was you who made this happen. Without you, I would not be doing a constant happy dance in my head right now (I promise I'm trying not to grin like a lunatic and dance at the same time. In public at least.)

I genuinely love blogging. I love it as a format to connect with people and to share little bits of my life with the wider world. I love it because, for me, it is a catalyst for creativity too. Writing in this space has brought me so many new friends and new opportunities and enriched my life in countless ways.

Knowing that people actually read what I write is a genuine thrill. Knowing that people care enough to comment, or share or 'like' a post is phenomenal to me. Receiving  recognition for what I share here through YOU taking the time to vote for me is... I don't think I even know the word... it's... it's completely mind-blowing is what it is. I can't thank you enough.

I'm also especially grateful for you securing this mama a rare night out on the tiles!

PR Slides put on a great event. There was free booze from Zaconey, tons of delicious food and lots of glitz and glamour. I got to hang out with some wonderful bloggers too - in particular Lauren from The Dare Project, Suzy from The Airing Cupboard and Cillian from Búla. So much fun!

Have a look here for more details and photos of the big night and to check out the other winners.


Thanks again!!
