A Big Hint and a Giveaway!

Hey Girlfriends! You are so fun, I loved all of your guesses and the eager suspense you share in imagining who I could be talking about (or talking to!)! What would life be like without our girlfriends to gather around us and delight in life’s happy events and surprises? All will be revealed soon, my dears. Very soon.

As we gear up for our Inspiration Week to begin February 4th (by the way, I have some super women lined up to share their inspiration on how they find beauty in their every day life, and I hope YOU will take part as well!), I thought it would be fun to have a giveaway to get us in the right frame of mind! There is nothing like a great book to inspire us!

So, leave a comment here on this post with your contact information and you will be entered into a drawing for the following inspiring book (one of the only ones the author has written that I have not read, so I need to get one for me too!). If you have this book, I can substitute one of equal value! One comment per person, please. Winner will be drawn at 9 PM (PST) February 1st and posted by Saturday Monday.

Good luck to all of you, more surprises and fun to come!
