I could hardly stand it this morning!
It was finally here - the day of the drawing!
We would know the winner of the giveaway!
Oh, my gosh, I was so nervous!.................What if I drew my BFF's name?
What would people think?..................Would they think it was rigged?
"Oh, good grief, Sophie!! Wake up!! - this is exciting!"
What if I drew the name of someone I was unable to reach?
Then what do you do?
This was my very first blog giveaway - no wonder I was so excited and so nervous!

"Okay, mom. It's time. (with my precious mom drawing I knew I wouldn't be accused of any blog crimes) Put your hand in the box and please draw someone I don't know! (Oh, I'm just kiddin' ya! - I didn't really say that!)
She puts her hand in the box and draws.....................(doesn't she look good???)........................................

SUMMER SUNDAYS - JW!!! wooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooo!

We've got ourselves a winnah-h-h-h!

And, now that it's all over except for the mailing of the box, I'm kinda I'm going to have another blog giveaway when I get home from Michigan! Yipee!!! (that'll be the latter part of February *yeah, I know*)

***And, now, on a serious note. . .I cannot begin to tell you how much your posts during this giveaway have meant to me. Your kind words, those of you who wanted to be added to my *some day I'll get it together and send my first one out* newsletter, those of you who signed up to follow my blog because you enjoy it so much, all of you made me feel very special, very loved, very accepted.

Thank you. I love my blog and I love that you love it. (and if you haven't read the story just below this post, oh, you must. It's simply divine.)

So, until next time, XOXO,

. . . . .Jan
