In Celebration of our 500th Post

30 07 2010

We can hardly believe it, but today we hit our 500th post.  This probably doesn’t seem like a lot compared to most blogs, but unlike most, this blog is not our fulltime job.  Don’t tell anyone, but we have jobs, and families.  The blog is our joy, our hobby, and has been an excellent way of sharing the south we love, and hearing about how you love the south as well. 

In celebration, we are giving away the new book, Put ‘Em Up, A Comprehensive Home Preserving Guide for the Creative Cook, from Drying and Freezing to Canning and Pickling by Sherri Brooks Vinton.

Thanks for sharing in our joy and allowing us to get to know you better as well. 

How to win: Leave a comment for us by Tuesday, August 3, 2010 at 6pm.  A winner will be selected at random and posted the following day.  Good luck and thanks again!

Congrats on 500. Just bought some jars for canning this weekend, but they are so pretty I may just use them for someone else.

Aren’t jars just the prettiest things ever? I love them as well.

One of my goals for summer is to can something — anything! Just to learn the process!

Congrats on your 500th. How fighting that your Jacksonville picks are featured on DesignSponge today! Duuuval!

I know! We are very excited.

So glad I found you on Design*Sponge. Love your blog and
love the South… we will be blogging friends! Congratulations on the 500th. This means I have 499 to enjoy.

We would be so honored if you actually read all of them, but that is an undertaking. Glad you found us.

I am so glad that I found your blog. I used to live in JAX and miss it terribly. I even returned to get married last year (my groom is just now starting to truly understand my love for the city).

Thanks for posting – keep up the great work. I am planning my first canning party soon. I can’t wait to check out the book.
