What, do you ask is my "BIG NEWS"???

I am so thrilled.




Remember this?

Or, maybe this:

Well, guess what?

WE WON!!!!!!!

We won! Waiting to hear on logistics but that $2,500 prize?

It has my sister-in-law's name on it!

I can not tell you the joy in my heart. And I can NOT wait until I tell my sister-in-law!!

Thank you all again (a thousand times over) for your help and support in this contest! I am so appreciative and grateful (and that doesn't do it justice...)!!

  1. YAY!!! You should somehow video you telling her the news so that we can see her excitment!!!!

  6. Congratulations!! We are SO happy you are happy :)

  7. SOOO excited for you!! Such a generous thing you're doing for your sister in law!

  8. This is super neat! I am so glad your sister-in-law won. Her/your story broke my heart. I know this doesn't bring a person back, or cover up the sadness of the loss, but it can/help.
