All the Winners! (and happy feast day to you)

Hey all! The husband, the baby, and I are back from our sojourn in Spain (and a little France). It was a wonderful trip. Details are forthcoming. But first, here are all the winners of my birthday week giveaway!

First up, the Sacro Cross giveaway . . .

The winner is: Neely of the blog Ten for Joy! I don't have your email address, so please email me so I can forward your contact information to Francisco at Sacro and you can choose your lovely prize! (You have until Friday at midnight to claim your prize or I'll choose another winner.)

Next, the St. Joseph Capella CD . . .

The winner is: Cecilia of the blog Catholic Stitches! I sent you an email, and you should be hearing from Teresa, member of St. Joseph Capella, soon.

The year's subscription to St. Mary's Messenger Magazine . . .

The winner is Amanda of the blog Little Junkles! I sent you an email, and you should be hearing from the publisher soon.

If you didn't win, a subscription is very affordable, and I recommend it! I don't know how to put this other than to say that I don't think the cover art is representative of the content of the magazine. Inside you'll find photography and illustrations and professional layouts that make the articles featuring poetry, catechism, crafts, literature, and science feel appealing and accessible to kids of a wide range of ages.

The Whole Family Goods gift certificate . . .

The winner is Maggie! You won by following me on Instagram, which seems like a small price to pay for the handmade cuteness that will now be yours. Seriously, check out this skirt. I want one in my size.

Check your email, you should have one from me! And Nell will contact you soon.

And finally, the Ignatius Press giveaway . . .

Tacy of the blog Standing on My Own Two Feet! You've got an email from me, and you should be hearing from Rose at Ignatius Press.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I hope you won something, but if you didn't, I hope you'll consider picking something up for yourself. I think you'll be glad you did.

Trip details and the winner of the #whereislulu contest will be coming up soon!

Happy Feast of the Guardian Angels to you!

Have you hugged YOUR guardian angel today? As part of our morning prayers each day we say the Guardian Angel Prayer, then we say good morning to our guardian angel, then we say good morning to someone else's guardian angel. Then, sometimes, we end up in a heap on the floor from overzealous hugging. But that's not the point. The point is, say hi to your guardian angel. It's his special day!
