Time Out for a Minnesota Moment…

10 Jan

Can you believe? Three posts in one day! I promise not to do so again! (I don’t want to bug you all…that’s why I just post often enough to remind you I’m here…not to fill up your inbox!)

But I couldn’t let this TUESDAY go by without mentioning an exciting thing! I’m in a magazine! Ha! How fun is that?!

Minnesota Moments, “A Unique, Creative & Informative Lifestyle Magazine” just came out with its Winter edition and there is an article about ten Minnesota bloggers and I’m one of them!

Huge thanks to Audrey Kletscher Helbling @ Minnesota Prairie Roots for her part in this process – with you, this would not have happened! Thank you so much. http://mnprairieroots.wordpress.com/

What an honor and a fantastic way to start the new year!

    Hi Gretchen, I hope you had a wonderful three-week holiday. That is exciting news. Huge congratulations. Unfortunately we don’t have that magazine here in Australia so I won’t be able to see the article. I’m sure it will make for great reading.

      🙂 No, I don’t think that the magazine is too far outside of Minnesota, in fact! I can’t figure out how to post links on here. Gotta work on that.

      You are always so kind. Thank you! I figured out how to do a blogroll, so was able to at least post the links that way! I’ve been meaning to do that for awhile so it was good to get done. It’s all very fun! Thank you again.

    How over-the-top exciting!! You must be beside yourself.. it’s a real honor to be asked to write for a magazine.. We won’t get it here, either, but do post a link or something so we can ogle!! xo Smidge

      I’ve now posted a blog roll at the side, so the link is there and I’ll mention it in my next week’s post so that everyone knows!

      Thanks for your encouragement! 🙂

      Thanks! And I figured out how to do a blogroll at the side, so that’s there, too! Thanks for the help! And I’m glad you stopped by! Please come again!

    The Nobles County Library carries Minnesota Moments so if anyone wants to stop by and read about Gretchen it’s on the display shelves of the magazine area!

    Minnesota today-the nation tomorrow! A well deserved kudo to start the year. I agree with the comments above regarding yours as a blog I wouldn’t mind more of in my inbox. It’s always a warm smile as well as an inspiration.

      Thanks, Kim – It’s great to be inspiring! 🙂 That really means a lot.
