It's Official!

Something bulky came in the mail yesterday. But I was too busy, too tired, too unmotivated to open it. Well, I wish I wouldn't have waited an entire 24 hours to find out what was in that package with the obscure return address printed on it!

It was the plaque for my 2008 The Knot Best of Weddings Pick award! It's very nice, I must say. They also sent a window cling to display proudly in the window of my home office for all my neighbors to view. hee, hee

Of course it also was accompanied by a nice congratulatory letter filled with ways to not only market my business, but also The Knot and everything Knot related. I'll do my best dear Knot, I'll do my best.

I honestly forgot all about this, so I haven't been checking the magazine stands, but it appears that the The Knot Best of Weddings 2008 issue is out. I believe it has a red cover with a square stacked wedding cake (this is mentioned solely for the purpose of those family members reading this that are wondering how to get their hands on it). I have no idea what my listing looks like in it. I suppose I'll venture down to CVS shortly and buy every issue they have. :)

I also had an email today from a press-related source to see if I would be interested in an interview. Hmmmm..... I'm press leery. I've been in Sales & Marketing for high-profile companies for a long time now. I KNOW how things can get twisted once written and how the things you really want them to print somehow just don't end up in the article. So, we shall see if I partake in any of that.

For now....I have full usage of this lovely logo to do whatever I please with. Which would include being put on my website that I still haven't figured out how to revamp or who to have do it or any of that fun stuff.



Oh, and for those that are wondering how this award was won....."The Knot Best of Weddings is an ongoing survey of local brides and is available by invitation to registered members on TheKnot.com and WeddingChannel.com." So without further adieu......THANK YOU BRIDES! As always, you rock my little wedding world. You ARE Dreams & Designs. :)

And for the record, this makes me even more sad that you had a work commitment and couldn't be my DOC!
