    Polka Dot... I just wanted to tell you HOW MUCH I appreciate you shining your light for Christ so brightly.
    The way you encourage modesty and have stayed so humble is extremely encouraging. And getting a comment from you on my blog meant the world to me.

    I really look up to you, and I just wanted to say keep up the fabulous posting skills! And your guest post today was awesome.

  20. Congratulations to all of the winners! What cute stuff! ^_^

  21. Such fabulous give aways! You won my give away for sponsorship! :) I sent you an email the other day! Hurry and send your button ;)

  22. Dear Polka Dot,
    I did not participate in your bucket list giveaway, because I thought there were people who'd enjoy the prizes better (I've already won some other giveaways, and generally have too many things, and-) But: One of the items on my unwritten bucket list was visiting various places in the Baltic countries, including Liepája, Latvia. I did visit them. It was everything I dreamed of and more, down to loads of cats in the streets for me to photograph and buying (and drinking) kvass from a stand in a park. I'm going to write about it, when I get there...
    I thought you'd like to know that things do work out sometimes. :-)


Comments make my day.
