Mom's good-news-comes-in-three saying won out today. Maybe it's because of the 12/12/12, triple 12 date. Or maybe not.
At any rate, after my bad-news start of the week, which I won't go in to here, I was ready for some good news.
Everything about my three-part good news is Christmas related, which helped put me in the holiday mood. Please excuse this shameless self-congratulation.
Good news #3: My recipe for German Gluhwein (Donna's Hot Glow Wine) and the story behind the recipe are featured on the Panera Bread Company website this month. Actually, I received the news that the recipe was posted yesterday afternoon, but for some reason my home town was shown as somewhere in North Carolina. After a quick e-mail to the editor, a fix was made and my correct home town appeared there this morning.
So, that's my good news for 12/12/12.
Congratulations to all the other writers whose works are included in the anthologies mentioned above.
I think it's time to make a batch of German Gluhwein to celebrate.
Prosit! (That's German for Cheers!)
