Winner of The Mailbox

The winner (randomly picked by my 8yo son) is Kim-- commenter #10! I have commented on Kim's blog to let her know she won. Thanks to all of you who left comments and pledged your help in spreading the word about the book. If you didn't win, please consider buying the book through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or any local bookstore. If your local Christian bookstore, Books A Million, Barnes and Noble, Borders, etc. isn't carrying the book-- ASK FOR IT!! This helps raise their awareness that there is an interest in the book.

I so appreciate your wonderful comments of encouragement as I ready myself for the launch on Tuesday. I have no idea what to expect but just know I will be keeping you guys posted! Remember, you guys are helping the book's success every time you tell another person about it!!

My birthday is tomorrow-- the big 4-0! We have no special plans during the day-- just hanging out as a family. Am hoping it won't rain so we can head to the pool. Tomorrow night we are going out to my fave restaurant for dinner with my parents and Sunday night we are headed to another restaurant for dinner with friends. I am looking forward to both nights out. Monday we are going to the lake with some friends.

Which means, I hope you all have a great Memorial Weekend!! I will return on Tuesday with a post about the launch.
Pin It!

And Happy, Happy Birthday to You! 40 isn't too bad, and you've certainly hit a big milestone before you ever got to the BIG 4-0! Way to go!
