a one year anniversary give away!

Today, March 10, marks the first anniversary of Life in the Sandwich Years! To celebrate and to thank all of you for supporting me in this adventure, I'm having a give away! I've decided to let the winner choose their own prize. So, the main part of the gift is an ...........

gift card. As I am sure you already know you can buy anything there, I mean anything . There will be a couple of other little surprises, too. To enter, just leave a comment on this post.

The kind doctor is taking all of us and our spouses on a trip. We leave today and return on Monday. I won't be posting while we are away, but when we get home, I'll tell you all about it !! :-) I'll announce the winner on Tuesday, March 15. One of the surprises might be from our trip!

Thanks again for being faithful friends this past year! I so enjoy reading your blogs and finding your comments here. You might be surprised at how often I share things that I've learned from you with my family, friends, and co-workers. Sometimes, they will ask..."Is she the one who lives in California?" ....or "Is she the one who is doing the cookbook?"....or "Is she the one who has all the great craft ideas?", etc. They are getting to know you, too!! :-) You bless me everyday and have made blogging more important to me than I would ever have imagined!
So, I rejoice for the opportunity to celebrate with you...I can't wait to see who wins!

    Its funny - I refer to my bloggin' buddies as "my friends"...and then I always find myself saying to someone, "well, actually we have never met, but - " Well, they are real friends!

    Excited about your giveaway!!

  10. Congratulations!! And what a special heart you have--giving someone else something on this special day.

    I so enjoy your blog of ministry. Yes, that's what I always think of here. That's what makes this whole blogging thing so special. We can "reach out and touch" those we normally would not have in our circle. Blessings!!
