Old school raffle style again.
I know I have other options.
Quicker, cuter, more tech-savvy options.
But I like yellow post-its in my Longaberger.
Before I reveal the big winner, I want to share with you the link that got the most hits.
It's also one of my favorites.
Such a good idea. And executed perfectly.
I've been mesmerized by it since last week.
It's the fancy glitter, I'm sure.
Well done, Kaylee.
I want to thank each and every one of you who linked up this month.
For pinning and testing. And documenting and sharing.
This was fun.
I'm definitely going to bribe you more often.
On to the reason we're here.
The winner of so many fabulous, fun prizes is...
You are one lucky duck.
Contact me for details on how to claim your loot.
Same time, same place next month.
November 1st, to be exact.
It will sneak up on you.
Mark those calendars.
And thanks again to all who participated.

Kim sent me this video last week.
She was kind enough to babysit the girls while Dave and I were out for my birthday dinner.
And I saw it fit to post.
For a few reasons.
The first anniversary of Ashlyn's cochlear implant activation is later this month.
And I want a marker of the progress to come.
I want to look back a year from now and feel the way I do when I watch her today.
As I see her answer questions and speak more clearly.
As she interacts with others without a need for my interpretive skills.
I love her silly jokes.
I love her personality.
I even love her sass when she talks back.
Last year, I remember feeling doubt and fear that we were too late.
And while her speech may never be exactly perfect.
I think we're going to be just fine.
