Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
I'm celebrating! I'm celebrating la joie de vivre!!!
*
Yes...I am celebrating the joy of life! Life is great and I am soooo blessed!
*
The Lord has certainly blessed me! I have a roof over my head, food in the cupboard, my health and most importantly...a sweet, loving family and many cherished friends!!! Yes...I am celebrating the joy of life!!!
*
I am celebrating a couple of blogging milestones as well. In August, Happy To Design turned two! My two year blogaversary...who would have thought! Hehe! I am also celebrating my 500+followers! And I have to tell ya...that just blows me away!!! The past two years have been a fabulous journey! I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! Many heart-felt thank you's to each and everyone of you, sweet friends! I count you as one of my greatest blessings!!!

Yesterday another milestone was made...the premier edition of Belle Inspiration E-Magazine made its debut! I have been really exited about this new publication and when the first issue arrived in my email yesterday...I was doin' my happy dance! Ohhh my goodness...its just "dripping" with sweetness! So many fabulous photos, interesting articles...it certainly lives up to its name...Belle Inspiration!!!

Soooo...in celebration of all the many joys in my life...I decided to do a giveaway! I am giving a gift subscription to the brand new Belle Inspiration E-Magazine! (You can read all about it in my last post if you'd like). All you needed to do was leave a comment on that post.

At midnight...September 16th...I used that "random number generator" thingy to choose a winner. There were 18 comments...and the lucky number drawn was...#13!
*

*
The 13th comment was left by Pattie over at "On Hollyhock Farm"!

Congratulations, sweet lady!!! I will need your email so that your year's subscription can be delivered to you! I just know that you are going to really enjoy Belle Inspiration!!!
