Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

The votes have been cast and the results are in!  Mister Brian Wigand of the lovey-dovey story number three is the winner of the Umber Dove Birthday Contest and the (soon to be) proud new owner of an Umber Dove pillow! 


Congratulations!

And a super huge thank you to all who took the time to send in stories (and to those - Sam - who are still going to...), I truly enjoyed reading each and every one!

In other realms of life, I am the proud new owner of an amazing work of art that sits weighty on my chest, a searing heat that soaks into my body.


Ladies mine, near and far, the givers of my Seraphim necklace, I love and treasure you.  Your thousand wings lift my sights, lending strength, whispering encouragement, buoying my spirits, protecting my soul.  I love you.  You know who you are, and even more importantly, I know who you are, and I am thankful for the gift of your friendships.

a celebration of your green, growing strength and a vibrant shield for your heart. i myself have a nice piece of purple chalcedony as a shield for my own...the color of royalty, of mystery, of my own birth month. now when i feel the weight of it against my chest you are there too.

xoxo,
she.
