An Announcement and a Giveaway!

So, I have an exciting thing to share.

No, it's not that.

Nope, not that either.

Again, it's not THAT.

Okay, so wanna know?

Last week, a box of shiny, new books were waiting for me when I got home.

See, aren't they pretty?

I was so excited because right there, on page 114 (in the section labelled Doubts and Insecurities) was a very familiar story. A story very close to my heart.

And there, two pages over, the name of the author.

To call myself excited to see my name in this book would be an understatement. I'm pretty much over the moon thrilled!

Now that the book is available in stores, I can officially give some away! (Okay, so I dunno who I'm fooling. I've already given away five copies. My Mom, mother-in-law and grandmothers all got copies two weeks ago. I just couldn't help myself!)

I'm giving away two copies of the new book, Chicken Soup for the Soul: New Moms, as well as some new-mom pamper-yourself spa supplies, perfect for a new mom or any mom who needs a good read and some relaxation. The book is full of funny, sad, inspirational and relatable stories. You'll laugh on one page and cry on another. The wide variety of experiences shared is really neat and every mom will certainly see shades of herself within the pages.

To enter, just leave me a comment. If I don't know you in my day-to-day life, please leave your email so I can contact you if you win. I'll randomly select two winners a week from today.

Good Luck!

That's awesome! Sue showed me the article in the book a few days ago when I stopped at her house. Of course, we thought the exciting news was something else. ;)
