gifts


I'm so happy to announce that Annalee won the Perfection Creme giveaway!

And with Thanksgiving this week, causing feelings of gratitude and anticipation of the joy of giving at Christmastime, I'm oh-so-excited to announce another giveaway:
Jason F. Wright is a gifted author. By far, my favorite book of his (and possibly my all-time favorite Christmas book) is
This book helped our family create a tradition - actually, our favorite holiday tradition. We've had experiences since first reading this book that have actually been life-changing. It's a novel, and a very gripping novel at that. But mostly, it's an experience. If you've never read it, please pick up a copy - I promise, it will kick of this season of joy in a new way and you'll be glad for it!
I ran into Jason at our local Deseret Book Store where he was stopping for a few hours on his book signing tour. He took a few moments with me and shared this Silver Strand of his:

  5. That's awesome that you got to meet up with him. I actually finished The Wedding Letters last week! (I read the Wednesday Letters a little while back.) Christmas Jars is one I've not yet gotten to but I enjoy his style. :)

  7. Thanks so much for stopping by today and leaving your kind comments! I did stop by ChristmasJars.com. What a neat story and neat idea. I have plenty of mason jars around the house and this sounds like a neat tradition. I'd love to be included in the giveaway. Happy Thanksgiving!

  8. It's so nice to see you in a picture with your favorite author! This reminds me of my sister-in-law who was so excited to go to a book signing in Ohio to see Richard Paul Evans. She just loves his books! She has pictures of her and him at the book signing and now his picture is the wallpaper on her computer! So funny! I've never read this book, but I just might have to pick up a copy!

    I wanted to tell you thanks for visiting my blog and leaving your nice comments! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!!

  12. Here is a 'Christmas Miracle' that I have shared with you -- literally!
    Many years ago, just before Christmas, I gave birth to a baby girl, a beautiful little baby with curly hair and brown eyes. We named her Denalee! 1l days later we celebrated Christmas with Denalee and her older brother and sister - what JOY! Thanks for being our little Christmas miracle.

    Love
    Mother

  20. I am always looking for a great read and Christmas stories are such a wonderful way to get into the holiday spirit. I apologize for not being by in a bit... life has been chaotic as of late. I realized how long it's been because now you have a full head of gorgeous hair... love the cut by the way! xo
