Blogoversary Giveaway!

Friends, lurkers, and countrymen! On January 18th, my blog turned 3 years old.  Wow, time has really flown!  I'm so grateful to have discovered such kind friends in my IF journey and beyond.  There are more deep thoughts to share, but let's get on to the important matter: a giveaway!

To celebrate my blog's small milestone, I am giving away TWO beautiful flowers courtesy of my friend Wendy's handiwork, Ruby Handmade.  She kindly provided both handmade flowers.  And should you want something custom made, just say so in your comment and I will pass your info along to her.

This flower (about the size of my fist) is a pin, but she can also add a hair clip if you ask for it.  The flower adds a pop of color to shirts, sweaters, and handbags. :)

This little flower is a barrette.  The small size works in adults' hair (like a subtle splash of color) or could also work in a child's hair.  I think KB could even sport it too.

SO, if you wish to enter the contest, please leave a comment AND a favorite quote.  Silly, serious, religious, whatever, just keep it clean.  On Friday I will randomly pick two winners and mail them the flowers.

Again, many thanks to all of you for walking with me the past 3 years!

No need to include my name in the drawing. I already have one of Wendy's lovely pins. The winner will LOVE it.

I just wanted to tell you how proud I am of your blog. You have been touched by so many wonderful readers and I know they have touched you as well. God put you on this journey and you have not disappointed Him. Congratulations and may God bless you and all of your readers.

Love, Mom

I meant to say that they have touched you as you have touched them. Senior moment :-) .............

I love your blog too!! I am sorry that I don't comment all that often, but I love reading about KB and you and your hubby. Your blog makes me smile! And those flowers are beautiful!!!! I will have to check out her website. My favorite quote lately is the following and I am sorry I don't know who it is attributed to....

"Don't let perfect become the enemy of the good!" I really, really need to live with that as my motto more!

Love you guys! (Okay, I think I am signed in as my other e-mail address, but this is Joy Beyond the Cross)

Hi! Congrats on the blogoversary. :)

My favorite quote of late: “Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.” -Pope Paul VI
