Martha Reynolds at marthareynoldswrites nominated me for a Best Moment Award. Thanks, Martha. She nominated me for my PENNE WITH FRESH MOZZARELLA post as a Best Moment. Hmmm… my cooking, not my writing. Hey, it’s all good. It is one off the hook meal. But my cakes are better. I’d like to open a coffee/tea/bar/bakery/bookstore. One of the facets of that business would have to make money. Oh, and you can bring your dog. But I digress.

My acceptance speech is below (you like me, you really, really like me – okay, showing my age there) along with the rules and the people I nominate.


Awarding the people who live in the moment, The noble who write and capture the best in life,

The bold who reminded us what really mattered – Savoring the experience of quality time.

I am excited to accept the Best Moment Award, given by Martha Reynolds, who blogs at marthareynoldswrites, real true fiction. Thank you, Martha. Thank you also to all the people who read my blog, those who have read my book – especially those who bought it ;), and most of all thank you to my husband who thought he married a hot-shot business woman and ended up with a writer.

(Um… do I get a tiara? I really like tiaras.)

Here is my list of the nominees for the Best Moment Award, with a link to the post I found to be so marvelous.

Celebrate! Tweet your success with hashtag #MomentMatters. Congratulations to all of the winners!
