iBloom Book Winner & Saturday Morning Post

Last weekend, I challenged you guys to enter a giveaway by commenting. The winner is getting a copy of the iBloom book, and the winner is CINDY NOEL PEJSA.

Cindy, I sent you a message so we can work out getting the book to you. Yay!

If anyone else wants to jump in on this journey with us, please do. I'm looking forward to a year of choosing to love my life!

Now, Saturday Morning Post time...
Yesterday was my last day at work at CBN News in DC.
You guys - I was blessed and overwhelmed with love and flowers and video tributes, and Georgetown Cupcakes and gifts and people saying crazy nice things about me!

The night before, we were blessed to get together with friends at Busboys and Poets, and it was the most interesting mix of people we love from all areas of our life - work, former co-workers, blog friends, a softball teammate, members of the White House Press Corps. It was so much fun. Even two people I hadn't met in person before!

I had lunch Thursday with David (my correspondent/work BFF/brain mate) at the same restaurant where I had lunch during my job interview to come to DC in the first place - another freaky full-circle moment.

We are leaving DC with a rush and a push of love and encouragement. I feel so loved and favored and blessed.

The state of this apartment makes me sick to my stomach! I can't wait to get settled in our new home in Virginia Beach, unpack, organize, and hang pictures! I love order! It feels like our apartment threw up all over itself.

Last night, Michael told me the clutter is even making him anxious and driving him nuts.
Good to know I'm not alone, and you have no idea how proud I am of him for saying that! :)

I'd like to give my mother-in-law a major shout-out for all of the help she gave us last week. She cleaned and packed and took care of Michael's morning care for four days. It was so nice!

I feel good about where we are. We have three days until we roll out. We are on track, though! And I'm so happy to not feel completely overwhelmed.

Now, to make a list...

How wonderful that you had such a send-off! It's so nice to feel that warmth and friendship when you are starting on a new path. I wish you the best of luck in your new home!

Hi, over from SITS. It's amazing that you have ticked off so many things off your work bucket list! So all change for you. It's sad leaving one part of your life but wonderful that you are getting to be closer to your family and going back home. It sounds like your friends and colleagues thought a great deal of you.

Good luck with everything and will be following your blog to see how things go for you.

Take care

Kate :)

Also meant to say,it's nice to meet you, you mentioned in you comment that we could probably relate to each other and I'm sure we could although even though I have MS, I feel I have a lot less to contend with, I am blessed that with medication things are being controlled at the moment and hopefully for many more years. Sounds like you've been through so much which can't of been easy, quite an inspiration and your husband too, you and your husband sound like a good team and strong team

Look forward to getting to know you better.
