Don't I have a great voice!

Well the Big Day is here and my Sweet Pea bought me some lovely presents.
I woke up to two dozen stunning pink and white roses which smell amazing and are quite a welcome ray of sunshine on this frigid cold day! Just beautiful. What more could a girl ask for, right? But there was more.

A lovely birthday card and one of my "all time" favorite movies "Love Actually" were also beautifully wrapped and ready for opening. He went out to grab us our morning coffee and came back with my Chocolate on Chocolate birthday cake. What can I say? I've got the best Sweet Pea on the planet. Kind, thoughtful, caring, and loving. I'm one lucky lady.

Ooooops, I almost forgot NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks to each and every single one of you amazing bloggers for posting about my newest website Elegance and Whimsy. I am in awe at just how many of you were willing to participate and help me get the word out.

O.K. I just used the trusty Randomizer and the winner is..................

Connie of "Living Beautifully"!
Congratulations Connie
