I am so very excited about this giveaway... but first a little explanation.
One of Lily's most faithful readers is from Yorktown Heights, New York. Cathy has been following Lily's blog since last year some time, and she is one of those people who always has something nice to say in the comment section~ and I am quite sure she is that way in real life as well. Cathy and I have become good friends through emails this past year, and I am determined to make a way to go see her in New York some day! Blogs are a funny thing...in many ways they connect us to people we never would have had the chance to meet, and some of my favorite people are ones whose voices I've never heard (although I saved that message on my answering machine, just so I can listen to your voice from time to time, Cathy ;) )
Cathy donated so many of the wonderful prizes in our Baby Sent From the Stars Giveaway last March. One of those prizes was so special that I asked her if I could hold onto it for a separate giveaway~ a dear friend of hers designed this gorgeous necklace.....
...and Jack and Lily are giving it away to one lucky commenter today!
Before I tell you how to enter, I want to share one of the comments from yesterday's post. The reader's name is Soha, and her words deeply touched my heart.
Dear Patti, hi, I am a mom from Iran and I have a little DS girl. She has 10 weeks and during this weeks I find good friends by their inspirations blogs. Today I find yours and I read some part of it. I read " I had a dream" and I cried by every sentence. I am full of fear and also love,I also feel solitude but reading your line let me know that my feeling is not strange, although geographically I and my little are so far from you and your little but our feeling are the same. So I am not alone here. my little girl have a good friend all over the world, she should only stay and find them. bless to all little angel all over the world.
Soha- I hope you're still reading, and I would love to hear from you again. Congratulations on your sweet new angel...you will love this new journey!
And with that said, here's how to enter the giveaway today. Do you have a connection you've made through blogging? Someone whose blog you follow or who follows yours, or maybe you found a friend through a comment they made here or on another blog. Maybe you just started reading blogs and you're new to the whole blogging community...or you're like me and you have so many friends spread out over the blogging community that you're wondering how in the world you will ever get to meet them all some day!
Leave a comment telling me about the friends you've made...or hope to make!...through blogging. And if that's too tall of an order, just leave a comment telling me about a friend in real life who means so much to you. That works too:)
Also- there is a special giveaway going on at Saving Our Starfish, that you don't want to miss. The Abells are trying to get Olga home by Christmas, and they're almost to their goal!
And finally- I am going to be posting any hour about Albina's family!!! Please make sure to check back here later on today- I can't wait for you to meet this wonderful family!
