I thought I was dreamin' when I opened up my email and there, plain as day, was a 'thank you' note from Jennifer Zawadinski of Southern Living magazine telling me she loved - yes she used the word 'loved' - my blog and really appreciated my 'Southern Living Dixie Road Trips'.
And if that wasn't enough to make me feel like I'd died and gone to heaven, she wanted my address so she could send me a gift!
Yesterday I opened the mailbox and sure enough, a package from Southern Living....
I LOVE THESE!!
Three beautiful cookbooks.
As you can see, "Desserts", (self-explanatory), "Off the Eaten Path" details famous eateries in every state throughout the south, and after reading all three (more than once) I have proclaimed "Comfort Food" my favorite.
A very lovely hand-written note by Jennifer herself....
Thank you so much for your support of Southern Living. We love the reports from your road trips. I'm enclosing our book "Off the Eaten Path" to inspire more jaunts!
Happy driving and eating!
So, I am more than excited to announce that starting immediately, my Southern Living Dixie Road Trips will now extend beyond the magazine, and will include me checking out as many of the spectacular places featured in "Off the Eaten Path" as I possibly can.
Hmm...wonder if I can fit a treadmill in the back of Dixie Red.
And speakin' of red - those red cowboy boots you've been dreamin' about are going to be given away on Sunday, April 1st.
As in this Sunday!
Til Next Time,
