Close-ups, Winners, and A Birthday Wish

Daniel and Bono Baby put all of your names in their hat and the winner of the Amanda Atkins giveaway is Jennifer of Intrastructure

But, we have big exciting news around here. 
Dear Amanda was so impressed with all of your sweet comments that she decided to give away two more of her beautiful prints. 
Isn't she the sweetest!

So, Lindsey Dear you are a winner.

Claire of Mamushka Marie, you won too. 
How fabulous. 
I am so happy for all three of you.
Now, the bigger and more important news is that tomorrow is Amanda's birthday. 
Happy Happy Birthday Dear Amanda.
Thank you for making our world a prettier place.
We adore you.

Random note:  While editing these photo's, I realized how much my glasses look like my Daddy's from the late sixties (I think). 
My Daddy had so many of these photo's around the house (I think he sent them out with resumes).
I can remember playing pretend teacher with those spectacles. 
I always felt like it was business time when I wore them.
I think that is why I like to wear them during "business" time now.
Announcing giveaway winners is business time, yes?

Here's to birthday wishes come true, random memories, and friendship.

love love,
Fritzi Marie
