After a very busy 10 days in California, I returned to find this lovely gift waiting for me. How nice to open up this box, courtesy of Lisa at Stop 'N Smell the Chocolates, filled with these fun cookbooks, a bag of oyster crackers and two ceramic soup bowls. Thanks so much, Lisa for sponsoring such a wonderful Giveaway on your blog. Not only did I win this fantastic gift, but two other lucky ladies won prizes too. It was perfect timing for me. I left California with it's 78 degree weather and came home to Portland at a nice chilly 38! I think I will make a yummy pot of soup for tomorrow's dinner and use my new dishes. Thanks so much, Lisa! I really love your blog! I encourage you all to visit it too...it is full of heartfelt inspirations, warm stories and fun recipes!
