Pierce, is the Valentine member of Buttercupland Editorial Advisory Group (EAG). He's our own little cupid, complete with quiver for his arrows and wings that flutter as he sings, "You Send Me." Since this was a Valentine giveaway Pierce was chosen to announce the winner. The day after a holiday is often a letdown so announcing that Melinda at Country Dreaming is the winner of the Valentine giveaway makes Pierce -- and Buttercup! -- very happy. Melinda is a honey and I am so glad to send on "Treasures Forever" to her. I only wish that I had enough copies to send to everyone.
I had a sweet Valentine's Day, complete with gifts of candy -- one of my favorites, Mr. Goodbar -- and lunch with friends. I hope your day was fun and full of happy surprises. Today promises to be much more mundane, but I am still hoping for a happy surprise or two and wishing the same for you. And that my friends, is an unintentional poem!
