Simple Kids Give Away Winner

Without further ado, I’m so pleased to announce that the winner from Simple Kids is ….


Congratulations, Maia! (check your email inbox for important information) You have won the Book of Days e-book subscription from Blue Yonder Ranch, the Multi-Use Soccer Station from Hearth Song Toys, and The Creative Familyand Handmade Home by Amanda Soule. Thank you to our generous sponsors for providing such great prizes!

I have to tell you all how much I enjoyed reading your comments in the giveaway entries. You are spending focused and meaningful time with your families, which was inspiring to see. You are enjoying time as a family through dinners around the table, camping trips, cuddling, reading, hiking, cooking, and family movie nights – and there were so many more great ideas for ways to spend quality time together. It was fun to read!

Speaking of fun to read … here are a few links that I couldn’t resist sharing with all of you from my internet travels this past week:
