And The Winner Is...

"Just living is not enough," said the butterfly. "One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." --Hans Christian Andersen

If asked what we might add to Mr. Andersen's list of must-haves, what would be your answer? I suggest "friends"!

And with that lead-in, I announce the **winner** of my recent give-away contest of Jessica Lawson's delightful debut MG novel, The Actual and Truthful Adventures of Becky Thatcher (review found here)--blogger friend, and author in her own right, Karen Lange! Karen blogs over at Write Now, "exploring the adventurous writing life."

Congratulations, Karen. The book will be on its way to you here real soon. 

Thanks to all who entered the drawing--may you all have a great rest of the week!


  1. yay for Karen!! and yes a must have for me is friends. It seems that's what I'm always searching for.

  2. Terri: Yes, friends! Hopefully we don't take them for granted. I know you've moved a number of times, so you've had to face the challenge of meeting new people more than once. Wishing you all the best as you settle in to your new home. Thanks so much for stopping by here :-)

  3. A lovely photo and quote. As for what else we need, I was going to say "love," which for me means family and friends and friends who are family :)

  4. Thank you so much Kenda! This is a wonderful surprise to finish off the week. :) I am thankful for friends, ones like you who make life so much sweeter. Happy weekend!
