the beautiful painting

Thank you so much to everyone for participating in the beautiful painting giveaway! The glowing comments about Margaret's art were wonderful to read and I know made the artist herself very happy!

{Using trusty, lucky Violet was selected as the winner!}

Thanks again to everyone!

The week ahead will be a combo of savoring the last days of summer vacation with the boys and getting everything ready for back to school (including early wake-up practice)! Hope to be back in blogging mode soon, my friends!

Congratulations Violet, and thank you all so very much for entering the giveaway-such a fantastic takeaway for me!
Wake up practice- how intimidating-gosh, dreadful even. sigh. but a very good idea. I am so proud of my self just getting shoes that fit!
I will find it helpful knowing there are a gazillion parents in the same boat with me getting their kids ready for school. Good luck to us all.
