As many of you may have seen this week, Old Town Home was nominated for Apartment Therapy's Homies Award as one of the best DIY blogs. We can't even tell you how flattered we are not only to be nominated, but to be inside the top ten of a category of 273 DIY blogs! Having only started Old Town Home last April, we're shocked and elated to be in the company of so many talented bloggers.

Only the top six contenders advance to the next round, and sadly we were just shy of this spot. Regardless, we wanted to thank everyone who voted from the bottom of our hearts. We appreciate you taking the time to vote, as well as being interested enough in our lives and projects to join us on our renovation journey, in good times and in bad. 

We also want to to thank those people that leave such touching comments, both here at Old Town Home as well as on the Homies page, including one that read:

Awww. Thank you! Knowing that people enjoy reading our blog makes all of the hard work, long hours, and late nights worth it. Juggling the demands of our careers, renovation projects, life, and now the blog can be overwhelming at times. But feedback like this makes my heart smile and our motivation soar. 

We'll be back later today with a little live tweeting from Alexandria's Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. I can promise the dogs will be cute and the politicians plentiful.

"spledifero" on Apartment Therapy said it best!

Truly an amazing showing for having been at it for under a year. But you really have a great thing going here, so well deserved!

Any special posts/projects planned for the upcoming 1-year blogiversary? :-)
