G&G in Sydney Morning Herald!

A big thank you to my Sydney-based friend Jamie who spotted this in The Sydney Morning Herald and shared it with me.

The lovely write-up about me and my blog—well that’s just icing on the cake!

Thank you Rachel Olding of Fairfax Media for including me in your round-up!

I located the blurb in the paper’s archive for September 15, 2011…here’s the full post:

If you’re new to G&G, here are links to the posts referenced in the write-up:
