Back to M -- and Two Winners!

I hadn't intended to begin a Guess-the-Destination contest, but when I saw that Betty Rubble had guessed Maryland and then in the very next comment Jemi Fraser had guessed that my Canadian trip would be to the Maritimes -- New Brunswick and Nova Scotia to be precise, I knew we had a contest. A souvenir of my trip to Maryland next month will go to Jemi. Please send me an email and I can get your address. The souvenir from Canada will go to Betty Rubble. That trip won't be until next fall, but I promise I will remember.

The trip to Maryland is for my first meeting with blog friends. I will be going to Maryland for a blogger tea, organized by Blushing Rose, our sweet Marydon, and to meet one of the dearest blogger friends, Sherry at Country Wings in Phoenix. I am terrifically excited and am just about counting the days until mid-April.

It's just about a month until Maryland and during that month there will be lots of Meetings for work, Matzoh for Passover  and aManda's wedding -- I'm keeping with the M theme. Except for the work meetings, there will be pictures!

P.S. Asking for prayers for Sherry's brother, Teddy, who has in the hospital with cardiac problems. Adding my prayers for a quick and complete recovery!
