Love Story {winner announced}

Saturday, January 21, 2012

"Right now, this moment. When someone asks you and you immediately think back at what makes your heart happy, and I'm having that moment. That's because as years past, as marriage grows older and kids grow bigger, and dreams grow fonder I can say I'm in love with what I have. Leaving out anything that's not a sentiment. I simply love the moment when I can say I breath and feel the love I'm not only receiving back from but also giving to my dear husband of 18 years, my beautiful kids and my fulfilling creative business which is my dream come truth."  - Mayra

Congratulations to Mayra from In Flight Celebrations for winning our Mega Valentines Day Pack with gorgeous items from  Le Papier Studio, Merriweather Council Suite One Studio and Perideau Designs! Her story is incredibly wise and insightful - thank you for sharing!

I read each and every entry and was completely floored by all the tender stories of love. Stories of motherhood, sisterhood, soul mates, happiness from hurt, spiritual love, wise love of parents, and good old sweethearts. 

I decided it was nearly impossible to choose one and went the random approach instead ( so hooray to Mayra for being lucky #10).  And for those of you  who shared this giveaway, I added in an additional entry.

One of my favorites comments however, was from this guy:

Thank you Allisa for making me take a moment and think about this. I'm grateful for the wonderful prizes and a fan of Perideau Designs and Le Papier as well, and I'm very excited!

It seems only fit as I take my little clutch often when I go out on a date with the love of my life! But most times when I read your posts they really make me stop and think. They are appreciated!
