    My alltime favorite quote...

    I love this quote...

  13. Oh PLEASE......pick me Leigh-Ann, you know Karen is my favourite local ARTIST.
    Leigh-Ann is SO right about Karen.
    She is a wonderful,caring person with such a big heart and such a talented artist. I have a few of her art pieces and I'm sorry I didn't get to any of her art sales this Christmas season.

    Leigh-Ann will laugh at this because they always tease me but Live, Love, Laugh is one of my favourite quotes.
    I also like Dance like no one is watching.

    I'd love to win this Leigh-Ann.....

    Love Momma

  14. Everything happens for a reason. (no idea who, sorry)

    and Garrison Keillor wrote in a book, "When darkest night surrounds you, look up and see a star and know you have one true friend, no matter where you are." I want to say it was out of Lake Wobegon Days.

  15. “Meeting you was fate, becoming your friend was a choice, but falling in love with you I had no control over.”

    “When I saw you, I was afraid to meet you... When I met you, I was afraid to kiss you... When I kissed you, I was afraid to love you... Now that I love you, I'm afraid to lose you.”

    Okay, I have two (just count them as one entry) and they are both unknown. But they are very close to my heart.

    You don't marry the person you can live marry the person you can't live without!
    That is my favourite quote, unfortunately I do not know who wrote this!
    PS...absolutely look forward to reading you blog everyday! Thanks.

  28. Oooooooh! These are gorgeous! I adore them! My all-time favorite quote is from one of my all-time favorite funny ladies, Gilda Radner. She certainly led an unpredictable life and made the best of it, as have you. Your story over the last couple years has made my heart soar and plummet with you and I love reading along each day. -e

    “Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity…” – Gilda Radner

  29. Those are so beautiful! Mine is part of the Rascall Flatts song because it describes my husband and I finding each other perfectly!

    "God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you."

  30. love, love, looooove these!!

    my favorite quote is:

    "In the beginning of life, when we are infants, we need others to survive, right? And at the end of life, you need others to survive, right? But here's the secret: in between, we need others as well" __Tuesdays with Morrie

    thanks for the contest! what fun!!

  31. "Well-behaved women rarely make history" ~ Laurel Thatcher Ulrich
