"And The Winner Is..."

     Well this post is definitely long overdue and I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I've been super busy this summer with work, projects, etc.....

      Normally my husband comes to pick me up for lunch and we decide to eat at Subway. Well while awaiting our food I use his iPad to see what's going on with my blog and check my mail.

     So, when I open my hotmail account  it says, "Congratulations #11 you're a winner." What? No way! Honestly, I never win, so at this point everyone in Subway knew something spectacular had happened to me.

I won!

     What did I win? Well, I won a beautiful family hanging from "The House of Belonging" that was sponsored by Kim at "Savvy Southern Style".

     I just want to say to Kim thank you so much for choosing me to win. I don't know what the process was but I'm eternally grateful and better yet having you as a follower....well, I'm flattered. Needless to say because of Kim I gained new followers and a new audience.

     Tiffini from The House of Belonging carefully wrapped my beautiful gift and sent it a very nice note taped to the back. Currently it's propped against the wall on the floor so you view it immediately when you open the front door.

     This won't be the final resting place because, honestly no matter where I hang it and every time I read it...this special gift reminds each of us that possessions come and go but, family is forever.

I love it!

Thanks again Kim and Tiffini
