Congratulations to Nancy, my 4-year blogging anniversary winner! Nancy's prize will include The Burts' Bees items, the gift card, and a Philosophy bath gel (because I LOVE Philosophy! Nope, they don't pay me to say this, but I use it for everything! I wash with it, wash my hair with it, shave my hairy legs with it -- too much information?!)
As it happens, Nancy is away from her computer right now, so I won't be able to contact her or send her prize until she gets back on line. How do I know this? Because the internet can lead to real friendships! I "met" Nancy on a website about Hurricane Charlie in 2005. I knew Nancy back in the day, when she dreamed of living in Paradise but was, instead, dealing with harsh midwestern weather. I knew her when she was a Snowbird, winging her way to Sanibel whenever she could. And now she is living the dream, enjoying the beauty of Island Life and her volunteer work as a wildlife rescuer. We were cyber friends for years before we actually met. Since then, we have shared a few meals and several bottles of wine. Nancy was one of my blog's first readers (and I was one of hers, at Sand Between My Toes and Branches and Roots), but this is the first time she's won one of my prizes. Yay for her! I only wish I could deliver it in person!
