A Dream Come True

filed under: Miscellaneous on November 10, 2010

I hope you will forgive this little indulgence.  I normally do not post anything on my baking blog that is not, well, baking related.  

And this sorta is…

I just received a very special package in the mail.

It is from the lovely and talented ladies from Brides magazine.


Dont scratch your head too long, yes I am already married.  There is no new news there.

So what is so special about this particular issue?

*holding breath cause I still can't believe its real*


My cookies are in it!!!

About five months ago I teased that I had some big news about these facebook and twitter cookies.  And this is it!  


The most precious page ever, #64, contains these little bad boys.

I am so honored and thrilled and not even a comment from dear hubby like, "Thats it?" can bring me down. (He, being my dear husband and all, just assumed they would get a whole page.  I love that he did that!)

Yes, thats it.  And thats all I ever wanted!!!  

Thank you so much Brides magazine!  Your staff is amazing and professional and so kind and patient, I just feel like the luckiest girl in the world to have been a part of this!

Now I promise I wont hijack my blog anymore for silly things like this! (but thank you so much for indulging me!)

    Hi 🙂
    You don’t know me, but I know you 😛 or well I´ve been reading your blog for ages. And I just wanted to let you know I tried your sugar cookie and icing recipe this week and they worked perfectly! The icing wasn’t perfect like yours, but by the final few cookies, they were looking mighty fine, if I had to say so myself! 😀
    Kind regards, Pernille
