Vote for Erin!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone is snuggled in with warm blankets, socks, and oodles of strong coffee. It’s unbelievable to me that it’s 2012. Time for a great big cliche to burst forth: where did the time go?! CK and I celebrated quietly at home last night with a fondue feast, and a nostalgic Ben and Jerry’s Boston Cream Pie ice cream toast at midnight.

Last year was honestly an incredibly stressful, hectic, and emotionally exhausting slog so I have great expectations for the upcoming 12 months. In a few weeks I’ll be sharing some VERY exciting news with you so stay tuned. Just to clarify, I’m not engaged, pregnant, or even Kate Middleton’s top lady-in-waiting candidate so you’ll have to keep guessing.

But speaking of candidates, I do happen to be a finalist for a very cool contest sponsored by Stonyfield and Organic Valley. Way back in the fall I submitted a succinct essay on my feelings about buying organic food and in December I was notified that I was one of six bloggers in the running to win a pretty fantastic prize including a years worth of products from the aforementioned companies and a gift card to Cooking.com. Merry late Christmas to me!

The winner of the Celebrate With Organic contest will be selected via your votes and I would so appreciate your support! Will you please consider clicking over and submitting a vote? It will take 15 seconds of your time and does not require you to register for the site. You only need to enter your email address to make your selection. As a bonus to you, anyone who votes with their email address is also entered in a weekly drawing to win their own year long supply of organic food from Stonyfield or Organic Valley. Now that’s what I call a win-win!

You can vote once a day until January 31, 2012 and then the winner will be announced. Fingers crossed! Please know that I sincerely thank you for your support! xoxo

Grrrr … I hate surprises and waiting. It better be worth it 😉

In the meantime, I made sure you got a vote (because I’d hate to be on Tracy Flick’s bad side).

Hi Erin, I read your essay and you’ve got my vote. It really think it is the best! I’m not an extremist with my diet, but very conscious of my intake for health, as well as personal/social reasons. I’m not so much anti-carnivore or pro-herbivore, as I am simply compassionate for all living creatures, which is a great motivator for me to be more conscious of the source of my food. Anyway, I hope you win! Good luck to you!

Thank you so much for the kind and thoughtful comment Dell! I feel very much the way you do.
