I too just started reading your blog a few weeks ago and I really enjoy it. Your posts are insightful, fun, and inspiring! Thanks for sharing so much of your life. I was tempted to feel guilty for leaving my first comment on a "prize" post but those prizes are so sweet that I'm going to let go of that guilt! :)

colleen smith said...

I've been reading your blog for a LONG while and I love it...your posts allow me to get lost some place beautiful. Praying for you and yours!

Kae Jo said...

Wahoo! I love giveaways!!! And even more, I LOVE YOU!!!

Meg said...

I want that blanket! hahaha :) I think these posts are my favorite.

Perhaps I should start blogging for real? I always want to, but maybe it's just not my thing.
oh well! giveaways are too hard to resist! xoxo

Jessica Sue said...

So I cannot resist that coffee or the cup to drink it in or that blanket (which I own two of, but think they are heaven sent)... so here's to hoping! XOXO ~Jess

Elizabeth Sprenger said...

Giveaway? YES PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Janelle, I always LOVE reading your blog and you are truly inspiring! I'm glad the "stalker story" (posted April 1st) was just your idea of a funny prank, because I truly was devastated at the thought of no more 'Three Men and Their Ladies' postings!!! :)

So with that being said.....THANK YOU for sharing your heart with all of us and for allowing us to have a little look into your world.

Bess said...

OOOHHH Yum! :o) You whipped out the coffee and the chocolates, and I'm in!

Had a great time last night!! Hope to see you again really soon!

Josh said...

fingers crossed and prayers to heaven that i win!

I so enjoy reading about your thoughts and feelings, how you spend your time, your photos and your beautiful family. You are so sweet, I only wish I lived closer to you so we could get together and be friends. I don't blog just because I am not up on the technology, but you are an inspiration that one of these days I may try it. God's blessings to you and your family.
