I heart giveaway - thank you


Wanted to say thank you again to everyone who participated and left such lovely blog comments in last month's Things I heart Giveaways. You made my month.

As February approached with Valentine's Day Single's Awareness Day and all its lovey dovey festivities, I began to dread the month. Then I read something...

"One of the best ways to make yourself happy is to make others happy."

Life lesson. I needed to cancel my pity party and focus on someone other than myself. So the idea of the Things I heart giveaways was born. It worked. I had a blast. Thank you. It turned into an AWESOME February despite not having a Valentine ;) and yay! the winners are starting to receive their prizes...

Michelle,
I heart you!!!! (Even when you don't give away anything.) I've told you before, however, it bears repeating; you have been such an inspiration and support to me during this journey - with the recipes and quips and most of all the “essence of you” that you pour into this blog. Even across the continent you bring So Cal warmth to cold Michigan.
Love and Hugs,
Tara from MI

Hello! I just discovered your blog through an OH member. It seems like a "happy" place to be so I hope you will allow me to hang out and benefit from your support, encouragement and...recipes! Thanks for sharing so much of yourself.

I have to agree with all the previous comments. I hope you realize what a difference you make in all of our lives. You have made my post op life soooo much easier and happier. Because of you and your creativity, I love to cook more than I did before my surgery. There is not a single recipe of yours that I have tried that hasn't been yummy. Your advice and tips are always helpful and uplifting. It is just like you and your beautiful soul to thank all of us, when we are the ones that are so greatful to you for all that you give us. Bless you!
