    Wow, what a thrill! And such a HUGE surprise! I heard the news while traveling home from Montana. It was all I could do to keep from screaming in the middle of the Seattle airport!

    Thank you so much, Mary-Theresa, for choosing my blog about Rubye. Thank you, Jen Apodaca, for asking/prodding/begging us to submit to the 25 Days of Romance. I loved every single one of the blogs!

    As some of you may already know, I had notified friends and family about the initial post of my blog, which was the same day of my hair appointment. That evening, I thought Don’s attentiveness was due to my new haircut. Finally, I asked why he was grinning so much. He said, “I keep thinking about your blog and all the neat memories it’s brought back to me.” Gee, if only I’d known that writing a blog would grab his attention, I might not have whacked off my hair. (Just kidding.)

    Then my daughter emailed, asking if this story was really true or if it was one of my fiction pieces. I assured her it was true–at least from MY perspective! But Don has since admitted that his frequent helpful visits to Rubye’s office were simply excuses to see me. Imagine that? After all these years, and I never knew!

    I am so tickled that this real-life fairy tale about Rubye has not only touched so many people but will soon be featured as an OCC/RWA PodCast! I can just imagine my Fairy Godmother taking all this in, smiling down at me and giving me a mischievous wink of her eye.

    Thanks, Rubye…for everything.

    Congratulations Gillian(Sue) and Dana.
    I am in a state of shock, and I am so honored to be included in your company. I miss the different blogs every morning, but my tear ducts have finally got a rest. The “25 DAYS OF ROMANCE” makes me feel I have peaked into a part of our members lives I might not got to see otherwise. Thank you Mary-Theresa and our very own BLOG GODDESS, Jennifer Apodaca. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK. OCC ROCKS!!!
    Always,
    MichelleT

    All the stories were so fantastic–and all so different!!! What a wonderful experience 25 Days of Romance has been for so many of us. Glad I didn’t have Mary-Theresa’s job of picking a favorite, though, cuz there were just too many that I liked. Thank you, Mary-Theresa, for making the final selection. I have to admit, the ones you chose are all dear to my heart. Congratulations to all three of our winners,
