I watch, or rather listen to Sense and Sensibility every time I quilt. Which is all the time. I figure I have watched this show over 20 times in the last few weeks and I never get sick of it. Clint can't believe that I watch it so much, but I find each time I watch it, I pick up on every phrase that I have missed before. I can almost quote the whole movie, with out any help. The reason I am telling you this is because I have thought a lot about the ending and how it can help me in my life. If you aren't familiar with the show I will tell you the end--- Elinor finds out that Edward didn't marry Lucy Steele and she starts bawling (love that part); then Marianne, Margaret, and Mrs. Dashwood go outside. Margaret climbs into the tree house and tells them that Edward is kneeling down and Marianne and Mrs. Dashwood hug. You can see the pure joy in their faces and the happiness that they have for their daughter and sister. Then they get married, yeah! I am a true romantic at heart. But as I have watched the show a ton, I have come to understand even more how important it is to be happy for each other. I have found, through my professional and personal life that jealousy and anger get in the way of relationships and being happy for other peoples successes. So I am going to try hard to always be happy for someone else who is succeeding and in the end, I hope that I can be a success as well.

So, on that note I am happy to announce that my sister (Jen) is a huge success and I am happy for her. She is the most amazing, most talented bow lady out there! I am not just saying that because she's my sister, her bows are incredible! She is having a matching bow and dress giveaway. Believe me the dresses are so cute, my little Lili has several of the dresses from her website and she wears her bows exclusively. So go on over there, and say hi! Tell Jen I sent you and enter the giveaway. Surely you know of a little girl that would love a matching dress and bow. Oh, and if you can find a picture of Jen anywhere, let me know. She refuses to be photographed for some strange reason. Just imagine me with a much cuter chin, and that's what she looks like.

Good luck! I hope one of you win.
