we have a WINNER!

Contests are always so much fun, and I don't know why I haven't done one on here yet! I had a blast reading through all your comments, and definitely am planning on trying some new fun drinks this's chilly and rainy and altogether perfect for something hot!

I know I promised this post last week, but sometimes life moves more rapidly than planned! One of the mottos that I'm trying to apply to my life is to "Live life as it comes, and it will come to you in great abundance." Less time spent in front of my computer screen is more spent with my family, friends, outdoors or trying a new activity! Give it a try, and you may realize that there are moments you're missing out on that you can't get back—so enjoy them while they're here!

Just to show you what I mean, here's a photo. ;) This gal is my dear friend Ashley who is enrolled at ISU! I went down to Ames all day Friday...and almost left without seeing her. I'm SO glad that I decided to wait the extra few minutes (which turned into an hour...whoops;) to grab dinner with her! We haven't talked in a few months, and it's always so good to re-connect with friends—especially when they're more like sisters!:)

Aaaaaannnyhow. Enough gab! Time to announce the winner of the fall "amelia reaches 100" post! To chose the winner, I wrote out each entry on a piece of paper, cut them in to little strips, and had my sister pullout the name of the winner. So, without further ado:

Drumroll please!

The winner is....

Anna Danforth!

Many of those who entered I don't know personally, but Anna was my high school french teacher and has been such a blessing in my life! She & her husband love the Lord and are planning to move back to Africa with their two adorable munchins to do ministry there! Anna, go ahead & shoot me an email and I'll get your giftcard in the mail!:)

Be on the lookout for more posts this week....

Love Always,
Amelia Renee:)
