Happy Annunciation! And giveaway winner. :)
Happy March 25th! Today is one of my favorite days of the year... The feast of the Annunciation, the [uncelebrated] feast of St. Margaret Clitherow (my confirmation saint), the day the One Ring was cast into the fires of Mount Doom (don't try to tell me that's not real history...), the traditional date of the first Good Friday....
We celebrated with Mass, a breakfast date, flowers for Mary, making our Consecration to Our Lady (we used the book in the picture below), waffles for dinner, and some Tolkien reading. :)
The only sad note is that I couldn't celebrate my big sister's birthday with her... I miss you, Natalie. Happy birthday! For a girl who loves Mary and Tolkien as much as you do, this really is the perfect birthday. Thanks for spreading your love of both to me!
Okay...now on to the announcement! The winner of Heather Dixon Wallwork's THE ENCHANTED SONATA is...
Danielle! Congratulations! I've emailed Danielle, and hopefully she can crack open her very own copy of The Enchanted Sonata very soon. :)
And a very happy day to all of you! Thanks to everyone who entered, and everyone who stops by in this quiet, little hobbit hole of a blog.
