My gosh what a wonderful surprise to win the Eat Out Award for best local food blog for the second time in a row! lifeisazoobiscuit turned 2 years old on the 12th of April 2014 – the same day I received this prestigious award at the Stellenbosch Slowmarket. How’s that for a special birthday present for ‘biscuit?
I have to admit I am ecstatic but humbled by the many people who have put so much faith in me. I am still bubbling with all the excitement but have been so blessed in being able to share my love for food on my blog and even more blessed to have people like you reading my blog. So thank you all for this award.
