The hardest part of this whole contest? Was not commenting on your awesome, sweet, and sometimes hilarious secrets. I didn’t want to screw the numbers up by telling you how much I dug what you had to say. You guys are incredible, and any mother would be lucky to have you. Rock on.
So! Onto the winners! I used www.random.org to pick two winners. Every person received one entry, so if you commented a few times to follow something up or to correct typos, I just deleted the extra comments to keep things fair. Believe me, dear friends, a typo certainly won’t disqualify you in any way, or make us look down upon you in shame. You’re beautiful, and these things happen. So here are the numbers that were randomly selected:
So commenter number 23 is Laura J. Hickman! Woo hoo! And commenter number 7 is Mandy A! Congratulations, Laura and Mandy! You have each won two copies of Deborah Batterman’s fantastic collection SHOES HAIR NAILS. One winner will win two print copies, and one will win two digital. Be sure to email me at mercedesyardley (at) gmail (dot) com with your mailing or email address, and tell me which type of copy you’d rather receive. If both of you want the same type of copy, the first one to request it gets it. Let’s all give Deborah a hand for her generosity, shall we? I truly hope that you enjoy her book. I certainly did.
As for the rest of you, thank you so much for participating, and leaving such awe-inspiring secrets about your mothers. I enjoyed this immensely. Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!
