Thank You To…

1.  Maria (Maria happens to be a long time reader here and we adore her.  See her amazing blog about adrenal fatigue recovery- Rest & Co.)
2.  Leanne Rees (I’ve read that book, too, and it was pretty incredible.)
3.  Marny de Jesus (Danny loved your comment about his salsa recipe 🙂
4.  Garren & Larissa Allred (Good luck with your move!!  And welcome to the East Coast!)
5.  Stargirl (Love that your town is full of sunflowers!)

That’s right!  Today we’re so happy to send a little gift to (5) of our dear readers (chosen randomly from commenters this week). THANK YOU for being blog friends/readers/contributors here.  We appreciated your insightful comments this last week.

We’ll be sending you each something that we love…a French press.  I think you’ll especially enjoy it this fall.  You’ll each get a different one  – but they are all ones that I hand picked when testing French presses last spring.  Aren’t the designs so great?  We are still loving making our chocolate brew. (French Press Designs:  Freiling $95 / Bodum Bean $38.22 / Bodum Chambord $30.27 / Bodum Brazil $35.95 / Bodum Shin $42.95 – not pictured.)  If you’re wanting to read more about this, see my previous post about chocolate brew and French presses.

We hope this uplifts your day and your week.  And may you have lots of cozy moments ahead this fall.

Happy weekend to all,


P.S.  Ladies above, please send me your addresses within 3 weeks.  Thank you!

FYI, for the rest of August we are giving a thank you gift each Friday to a random reader who has left ANY comment during the week on ANY post.  We just want to say thanks to the community here.  You guys are awesome.
