This Never Happens

I actually won something, ya'll!!!  This pretty much never happens.  In our house, my middle child is the one with all the luck.  She finds all the pennies on the ground and, if there is a drawing, her name is almost certain to be drawn.  But, me??  Nope.  So, imagine my surprise when I got an email telling me I had won something!!!  And, I'm really excited about what I won, too.

Recently, some other bloggers I follow have been reading a book called Parenting Without Borders by Christine Gross-Loh.  Over the last several weeks, they have been posting each week as they examined and reacted to each chapter of the book.  They called it the Around The World In Six Weeks Parenting Blog Carnival.


  I have truly enjoyed reading their posts and, by commenting, was entered to win a copy of the book autographed by the author!!!


Well, I won and I am so excited to read this book.  (Plus, like I said, I never win anything so   this is a super big deal!!!)  As I read it, I'm sure I'll be inspired to write a post or two myself!

All that being said, I would like to send a shout out and a huge THANK YOU to all the bloggers who wrote posts for the carnival.  They are all awesome writers and you should 
definitely go check out their blogs!
