First off I have to say, wow. I have been so touched by all your comments and your hellos! It really has been such a treat to read your comments and to learn more about you. And it has been so amazing to hear from readers all over the country and the world: Philadelphia, Jersey Shore, North Carolina, Illinois, Washington, Texas . . . all the way to Norway, Canada, Denmark, Finland, England, Scotland, and Australia! So cool!
Sometimes I get comments or emails from people who have followed along here for a short time or a long time -- and they worry that they are coming off creepy or stalkerish . . . . I say, don't even worry for one second! I love hearing from you. And I'll try my best to respond when I can.
I seriously have some amazingly kind and sweet readers. I received an email just this morning that nearly made me blush and I had to share it with Scott because I wanted him to know what kind of people are following our little ol' lives here in the desert. He was also pretty touched.
So thank you, thank you!
Now onto the giveaways. It's a busy day today so here are my super-styled giveaway photos.
Red tickets are for the "hello" art. Blue tickets are for the Deliberate Motherhood book.
And the winner of the "hello" art is . . . .
Congrats to Alison from Philadelphia! She also wrote in her "hello" comment that she was getting married at the end of September. Congratulations!
And the winner of Deliberate Motherhood is . . .
Congrats to Natalie! Many of you said that you planned to buy this book even if you didn't win the giveaway. I think that is so great! I'll even make it easy for you . . . . follow this link to Deliberate Motherhood on Amazon. At the time that I published this post it was listed at $10.77
Okay, Alison and Natalie. Check your emails for a message from me and be sure to reply with your address. I will get these gifts off in the mail this week.
