500 Followers and a Giveaway!!!

This week, my blog reached the 500 followers mark with the combination of both the Google Friends Connect and Network Blogs. It's so exciting and such a milestone for A Well-Seasoned Life. I still can't believe that there are people out there who are reading my words, but I'm so grateful that you are. Last summer, I decided to follow my dream of becoming a writer and, even if this is as far as it ever goes, I've accomplished that. And, it's all thanks to those of you out there who are following, reading, and encouraging.

To show my appreciation, I'm having a little giveaway. One of my lucky followers will receive a copy of one of my favorite cookbooks, Cooking in the South by Johnnie Gabriel. I've reviewed this cookbook here on the blog and have featured several recipes from it. It's an endearing cookbook. The more you read it, the more you'll like it. I promise!


As a way of saying "thank you", this giveaway is only open to my followers. New followers are always welcome! Just leave a comment below telling me you're interested in the giveaway. Also, please leave an e-mail address where I may reach you if you're the winner! Giveaway deadline is June 20, 2011.

Thank you and good luck!

To this point, I really don't cook much, just bake, so I need all the help I can get. It is so cool that Johnnie Gabriel and Paula Deen are cousins!
