daisySecond, thank you to all who entered my contest. I loved reading the favorite flowers comments, and I was touched that so many are linked to favorite people, places, and events. Flowers are a big part of our memories.


Minding Molly FlyerAnd now for the winners of my contest! (All winners were randomly selected using random.org.)


The winner of the Amish basket, hot pads, copy of Minding Molly, pens, and bookmarks is: Michelle Van Gurp! Congratulations!

(Here’s Michelle’s answer to the what’s-your-favorite-flower question: I love lavender for their scent, and sunflowers for their happy disposition. But I really love wildflowers of all sorts, for their spunk and determination, especially the ones that seem to grow where nothing should be able to survive!!)


The 14 winners of copies of Minding Molly are:

    I just finished reading Minding Molly. I loved it. Molly reminded me of myself when I was younger. I started it this morning and read straight through till supper time (thank heavens it wasn’t my turn to cook). I also enjoyed reading about the updates in Addie’s and Cate’s lives. It was like getting
    a letter from an old friend.
