  1. I am a follower in google reader.

    Life is to short so I always make time for tea……. during winter I dream about summer and garden plans some of the time but mostly, I breath deep and enjoy my “right now”. Not worrying about anything.
    I have 6 kiddos age 16-3yrs and 1 miscarriage 1/20/11 so I love to just sit and sip clearing my head…….be still and know I AM. (HE is)
    I pray to win :)
    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

    Peace and Blessings,
