And the winner is...

As always, 

I was overwhelmed by the response to my giveaway.

Overwhelmed not only by your show of support,

but by the bravery shown by those who were willing to share their fears.

We are not so different,
you and I.

We all have fears...

and within us,

the ability to overcome them.

Life is too short and too precious

to allow fear to stop you from doing what you really want to do.

So, what are you waiting for?! 



Drawing the winner is always a fun affair.

I like to do some things the old-fashioned way, so... 

187 little pieces of paper were cut and folded and added to the bowl...

Giveaway 1 

As always, my trusty assistant was nearby to lend a hand...

It was at this point that Jett discovered he was being left out of the action, 

and he wanted in...

He decided I needed to have a runner-up...
