Oh Happy Day!

UPDATE!

Audrey of Bay Ray's Child is the winner of sweet Berry Bunny.
Congratulations Audrey!
A big thank you everyone for your sweet comments and birthday wishes!
Hugs to all!
Lori Ann
~ ~ ~ ~ ~
In keeping with a little tradition I began quite a few years ago I'd like
to offer a birthday give-a-way!
Each year, it seems, passes more swiftly than the one before it.
A day can go by in the blink, a week by just turning around and when I'm stitching
 I look at the calendar to find it's 3 months behind.
The years?  They move at warp speed ~ a grandchild who was just born
turns 3 ~ really? ~ 3? 
As I hold on to each years memories ~ of good times spent with family and friends, of gardens grown and works inspired , 
new memories are created to savor in the future.
I am grateful ~ for another year.
365 more days to spend living, loving, exploring and creating!
Thank you world,
Lori Ann
To be entered to win  the sweet "berry bunny" pin keep,
please leave your comment on this post!
I will draw a winner Sunday evening about 8pm.
(Please include your email if it's not on your profile :-)
Good Luck!
