Giveaways! There were some great giveaways in 2008.

Our first was the Mother’s Day Getaway Giveaway, a wonderful spa package that went to Amy Stearns for her riveting story, “Two Kids and a Happy Meal”. It’s a must-read. The runners-up in the essay contest were Kassie (“Diary of a Birth”), Darlene (“The Story of Emily: Our Very Own Miracle”), and Lauren (“Raising Drew’s Baby”).

We’ve also given away several pieces of gorgeous jewelry from Underwood’s as well as some great gifts for party girls at Fast Lane and Bath Junkie. And who could forget the recent portrait giveaway that garnered a huge response from nwaMotherlode mamas.

We already have several awesome giveaways lined up for 2009, so stay tuned!
