Thank you so much Bloom!

I must say I was entirely TOO EXCITED about this...Country Living here I come! I checked late last night and almost couldn't sleep, what a dork!

I never submit photos of any kind to any sort of contest, and my reason is mainly that I don't want to subject my personal treasures to the scrutiny or "ranking" of other people's opinions. It's like Cutest Baby Contests. How can you possibly judge something like that, ya know?!!
As for all the other amazing contestants...motherhood is so unique and tender and special it isn't possible to actually rank whose picture was better at doing justice to this incomprehensibly complex and beautiful calling. I mean it when I say I was touched by each one and I'm sure everyone else felt the same way too. And I hope what I what I say doesn't come across as some haughty, condescending "winners" speech - cuz I mean it! I can't wait to see the rest of the photos submitted.

But I do love a good reason to get a subscription, so thank you again!
