“Because I Love Ya” (Winners Announced!)

Update:
I am awestruck by your beautiful answers. They made me laugh, that made me cry, and most importantly they reminded me of the beauty of humanity. If you are looking for inspiration I recommend reading the answers to my contest question below in the comments, they will bring you joy.

In no particular order, the 10 winners are:

Julie Edwards: “I am totes in love with my beagle. She is the best thing that ever happened to me…(well, not really but I like to think so). We go together like peas and carrots. Her name is Cocoa Beans. I named her beans originally but my dad added the cocoa so when we let her loose to chase rabbits in the bean field behind our house he wouldn’t look so funny yelling for “Beans” to come back.”

Terri McInturff: “What I love most today is having an 84 year old Momma, who still goes hunting and I get to go with her and share in those precious memories. I am sooooo blessed. Would love your book.”

M Westgate: “As a positive person, I love most things in the life I have; however, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day I will say I love my husband the most. My husband Ken is the type of man that legends are made of, he is good looking, but most of all he is a man of honor, commitment, he stands up for him self and sets the same standard for his friends and loved ones. He is caring and loving when it is time; but, he is also the type of man that will tell you the truth no matter what. He is my hunting partner, gardening supporter, and even canning helper in the kitchen. Some of my best memories of life are in the woods with him. Do not believe I am so blind by love to not see faults; everyone has them, including Ken, but as most relationships you build a foundation that grows and working through the hard times makes the future that much sweeter. This is similar to cooking, not every recipe goes well the first time you try it, sometimes the bad batches make the one you get correct that much better.”

Jon Brierton: “… every morning, upon awakening : “another chance”…”

Julia Knudsen: “My new Muck Boots that keep my feet dry when I am feeding the chickens, taking out the compost and most importantly splashing in puddles with my two girls!”

Chris Havard: “What I love most is waking up every morning next to my wonderful sleeping wife. Getting out of bed, going to my son’s room and watch while he sleeps. At that very moment everything is right in my world.”

Dominic: “I love my daughters & although they are not old enough to read I’d like to one day introduce them to your book and say “you only have to live within the boundaries you set for yourself, you really can do anything”

Liz Clark: “Ponies, and baby goats!”

Duane Cartledge: “I love my wife, who is also the best Friend I have ever had! She is “The Girl of my dreams” and “Love of my Life” ! I can’t even imagine life without her. We will be married 25 years on 10/01/13.”

Jeffery: “I love that I am not homeless, which I was for a while last year (and it was worse than I ever could have imagined). Life can be hard, but it can get better, too.”

**************************************************************************************

It is my Valentines card to you, lovely readers.

  1. Glug. The swedish mulled wine that my family makes every christmas season. Its somewhat of a family remedy for a cold, so I’m loving it now and hoping that it gets rid of my sore throat.

  2. My new home! I’m moving on Saturday back to my hometown and a beatiful little apartment – excited :)

  3. My backyard with the crisp layer of snow carpeting the grass and the trees and the brilliant blue sky. Love it … right now.

  4. My dog who without fail welcomes me home everyday from work!

  6. I love my new hair cut and the new edible glitter i got for valentines cupcakes!

  7. Hmm… There is a lot that I love in my life at the moment. I think the thing I am enjoying the most is starting a new exciting project with a friend.

  8. What I love most in life at this moment is the awareness that was brought to farmers on Sunday, February 3 when Paul Harvey’s voice rang true to the words, “So God Made A Farmer” in the Super Bowl advertisement.

    My grandfather, Raymond Wesley Weathers, was a dairy farmer. He started in the dairy business in 1942 with 23 Holstein cows and milked them twice a day every day, at 4:00AM and 4:00PM, until he retired in 1976. He farmed because he loved the land and because he loved the livestock and he used to say, “I don’t care whether my garden makes anything or not, I just like to see it grow.” To hear him talk was to hear him live; his deep, Southern accent was rich and genuine like the stories he told.

    Thanks heavens God made a farmer. Someone who cares for God’s creation. Someone who works day and night, in the heat, and in the sweat, and in the dirt, simply for the love of it.

  9. i am loving quiet morning walks to class and seeing the peaking buds on my favorite japanese cherry blossom tree.

  10. My husband, who I affectionally call Big Man. He’s 6’5″ and I’m 5’2″. It’s a lazy, rainy day and he just offered to cook dinner tonight, deer chili – yum!

  11. Today is my birthday and I am celebrating with my loved ones!

  12. Cilantro. I just can’t get enough lately!

  13. I love my job!! It’s seriously amazing and different every day.

  14. I love 75% dark chocolate with nuts and dried berries, the lovely sunsets we’ve been having in Texas lately, foggy mornings, beautiful photographs, cows in green wheat fields in the dead of winter. Ok, it actually feels like spring here – but I’m loving that too. :) I also think you’re super cool, Miss Georgia Pellegrini, and would be very grateful to have a copy of your cookbook. :) Have a great Valentines Day!

  15. Anna Marie says:
