I am so thrilled to celebrate by 100th post and my giveaway will be announced on Mother's Day. Today we are preparing for a Run for the Roses party of our own. Glen loves the horses, so if we can swing a party for the Kentucky Derby we try. We, I should say he is really cooking everything himself. He already made macaroni and cheese, shortbread and we'll bake two hams before the guests arrive. He ran to the food store, so quick I am writing out the contents of the prize. The prize is for the love of roses and it contains: Crabtree & Evelyn's bubble bath, Rosewater Body Lotion, Hand Therapy, body powder and soap leaves, Susan Branch's 64 message cards of fun, inspiration and hope, Susan Branch's little book of drink recipes, Victoria Secret's the Royal Roses of London Collection by Coral Guest dated 1991 and a 5 picture collage frame decorated on the top with roses. As I go through all of my lovely things I keep asking do I really need this or would someone else be able to use it more. I love roses and obviously that is why I bought these, but it would give me greater joy to give these away.
