We're Excited!

Much excitement here in South Australia this morning as The Washington Post's Terry Sapienza named Simply Natural & The Laurel Hedge along with Karen at Alkemie as her Blog Watch Picks of the Week! Two South Aussies in one week - woo hoo!

I've been a huge fan of the gorgeous Catherine over @ Simply Natural since her very first post, & it's been such a joy to see her wondrous blog grow & evolve over the past year. She shares life with her little boy, her hopes & dreams for the future & all her fabulous finds & ideas so openly & generously. Thank you Catherine & the warmest of congratulations to you sweet girl.

Washington's one of my very favourite U.S. cities, & it's always exciting leaving the plane at Dulles & heading into 'town' for some fun (oops, work!). So from the Adelaide Hills, thanks Terry for the acknowledgement, & I'm delighted to have you as a 'Hedgie'!

  30. Millie, sorry in taking so long to get here to offer my congratulations.
    Like A-M I have had the dreaded virus.
    My blog reader may get overcrowded but I make it to the Hedge everyday, for a little soothing & visual delight.

  31. Congratulations and so well deserving. She got it right!
    Lisa & Alfie
