.......comment number 11, kirsten! i used the random number generator from random.org and as you can see it gave me the number 11. kirsten, i will be emailing you shortly to get your mailing address so i can send you your elephant.
this was way more fun then i had ever imagined it to be. i was so excited just now using the number generator! i will definitely be doing this again. a huge thank you to everyone who participated, it was really great to see some friendly faces and super great to get to know some of you who have been 'lurking'. i also really appreciated all of the sweet words of encouragement and concern. it has been a rough go lately and having your thoughts and comments really brightened my days. i never meant to be all mysterious about what has been going on, once i am feeling better i will write a post about it, but in the meantime, thanks again. your words have really meant the world to me.
be well everyone and enjoy the evening (hopefully it is spring-like where you are)
