I’ve got a big smile on my face right now.
Last week, the lovely Rian from Truth and Cake hosted another round of “Freshly Press Yourself.” For those of you who don’t know, WordPress selects a handful of blogs to feature daily on their main page. It’s a huge honor to be Freshly Pressed and means a TON of exposure for the highlighted blogs. I think most young bloggers will agree that it’s a (not so) secret dream to have the “Freshly Pressed” distinction. Truth and Cake has been FP-recognized multiple times, and Rian came up with a clever pay it forward idea- I mentioned it here.
I’m humbled that she selected my post called “Tell me a story.” to be featured as one of three “Pressable” posts. What was a very difficult topic to write about and share publicly seemed to speak to quite a few people. That makes me happy. Take a peek!
I’m knee-deep in cranberry madness today, spending time in my kitchen and writing Christmas cards. It was a good day already- and now it’s fabulous.
Maybe happy hour will just have to include a special celebratory cocktail today… hint, hint!
Thanks again to Rian at Truth and Cake!
Loved your post, too and your fb page. Perfection spppsshh as if.
Right?! Thanks for reading. 🙂
Thank YOU for writing and sharing something so personal and important! You rock. Knee-deep in cranberry madness? Yum! Can’t wait to hear what that’s all about!
Everything delicious. That’s what. 🙂
I follow Rian over at Truth and Cake, as well! Your Tell me a Story post was very, very relatable and told in such an honest fashion. I would have picked it, too!
Thanks! It seemed easier to tell in a ‘story’ than to bare all and overshare like I usually do… haha!
A skill I am trying to master!
Congratulations on your ‘Cake’. I really enjoyed your post.
Thank you for reading it! Mmmm. Cake.
Congrats Amber! That was a beautiful, heart-wrenching, and heart-warming story that definitely deserved to be “freshly pressed.” As Rian said, it was universally personal – well done! 🙂
Thank you, Kristen!!
Your totally earned yourself that Cran-Rosemary Spritzer. (Which sounds delish, and makes me want to be besties with simple syrup, too!) I found you through T&C, and I am loving your blog! I am sooo excited for you!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read! The cocktail is really tasty- cranberry juice and bourbon were apparently married in another life!
I thought the exact same thing when I read it!!Beautiful, beautiful story, xxx
I really appreciate that!
Exciting and very much deserved, lady!
Thanks, Tori. 🙂
Congrats on your Truth and Cake freshly pressed, Amber!
Thank you, Jorie! What fun!
Congrats, Amber. A well-deserved recognition for a great post 🙂
Thank you so much!
You deserve it, Amber 🙂
Thanks so much, Tobi!

Thank you! I hope you are, too! 🙂
