I'm A Winner!!

Can you believe I said this to myself TWICE last week? Well I did! I entered two blog giveaways and won BOTH! Now the best part of it all is they were both delivered on Friday along with one of my favorite magazines, Southern Living.

The first notification email came from the goddess of EVERYTHING--tablescapes, soirees, weddings, dessert tables, crafts, and who know what else. I "met" Sandra Downie a few months ago and instantly became a fan. This lady is awesome, so make sure you visit her site and blog, The White Library.

My second email came from the wonderful Jamie of My Baking Addiction. I was one of five winners of an Edgeware Zester. I must say that this little doozie is amazing! Now Jamie's blog crammed full of food porn, so run on over and take a look. When you click on the above link, it will take you to one of the most touching posts Jamie has done. Read it carefully and do as Jamie asks...take care of yourself.

If you haven't seen the March issue of Southern Living, you're in for a real treat. I was immediately drawn into the cover photo and KNEW I had to bake the featured pound cake. After all, I was the proud owner of Driscoll's coupons so it was meant to be. You'll see more on the cake in another post, because today, it's all about ME and my winnings. LOL I honestly felt like I had won the lottery! I had $25 in free berries, a nifty new zester and a favorite magazine! What more could a girl ask for? Well I can think of a few things, but you get my drift.

How was your weekend?

    Again one of the MANY things that I've always admired out you...the ability to take in all gifts, enjoying the funny banter between brother, sister and nephew/sons, the winning of all things that fuel your creativity. You continue to be my shero!!!

  2. Thank you so much for your kindness Cynthia. I make every attempt to enjoy life to the fullest daily.
