Thank You & First Contest

If you are reading this—thank you.  Thank you for your comments.  Your encouragement.  Your emails.  Your support.  Your prayers for Joey.  Your friendship.

Thank you for giving me a voice.  A place to finally be a writer.  Instead of sitting around and trying to dream of an entire novel to put together, you allow me to write a little bit, chapter by chapter, thought by thought.

To celebrate this first week of blogging, I’m having Cowgirl Up’s first contest.

Enter for a chance to win a $20 Starbucks Gift Card.
  •         Just leave a comment on this post and tell me why you love coffee.
  •          Deadline to enter is Thursday, March 31st at 8 pm ET.
  •          One winner will be selected at random and announced sometime later this week.

This could be yours!  Thank you for following my blog!


  1. I have a 3 1/2 week old baby who was in the NICU for 3 weeks. Therefore, even more than most babies, she has some... not night-day confusion, just NO concept. I love/need coffee!

  2. We love you Jen and are praying for Joey to get feeling better! I can't say that I love coffee, but I have a big sis who lives off Starbucks and so in a way I love Starbucks (for her sanity).

  3. We prayed for Joey today at school.(St. Matthew) Hopefully, those voices will lift him up to recovery very quickly!
    Oh- and I love coffee because I ran out of concealer this morning. Yep. Ran out. But I did not run out of coffee. Made it like jet fuel to hide the dark circles....

  4. I LOVE coffee! For me coffee is an escape of sorts. It is a comforting routine that started after I had my children. It is something just for me that I don't have to share with anyone. When you are a mom, you find that so little that is sacred anymore. Even something as simple as taking a shower isn't necesarily a 'private' matter, but I have made sure that coffee is and always will be just mine : )

  5. Three things I love about java... 1) it's something my hubby makes for me every morning and I swear it taste better because he makes it! 2) it's a great way to catch up/bond with girlfriends and 3) well it's my morning wine! Nough said!

  6. I am not a coffee drinker, but my husband is, and if I want any peace around here- he BETTER have coffee! LOL I love the smell of the coffee in the package, but once it is brewed I've lost all interest. LOL

  7. Sometimes I set my alarm and wake up a half- hour before anyone else because it's my only time to have one cup of hot, steamy coffee all by myself before the day of chaos begins. I

  8. Glad Joey is doing better from the RSV! So scary. He makes my little Oliver look so tiny---Oliver weighs just 13.5 pounds at 6 months of age and it has been a struggle to get him that big. I love coffee especially to start my day but my husband LOVES coffee and he is from Nebraska too
