Kathy's Having a Giveaway and Congratulations to Our Olympic Winners!

Good morning bloggy friends! I have been doing some blog hopping this morning and I came across Kathy's beautiful blog, "Sweetup-North Mornings" She is having a Giveaway and it is darling; a bird nest towel holder. I hope you will go check it out. Her blog is sure to lift your heart and who knows, maybe you'll be the winner!

And speaking of winners........
I have never been much of a sports enthusiast, I do however enjoy watching the figure skating. After having been to Vancouver in January to visit my son and his family, I have been watching the 2010 Olympics. I enjoy seeing all the beautiful scenery of the place we visited just a month ago.
I have also been routing for our very own Canadian figure skating team from Ontario; Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir!

Well, Monday night, they won the gold after a flawless skate!
I am so excited because they are the first figure skating couple in Canada to win the gold and also the youngest couple in North America to win! We are so proud of them!

Congratulations Tessa and Scott!
Congratulations are also going out to their best friends and training partners from the US, Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who won the silver medal!

Both teams have the same coaches and both teams were amazing on Monday evening! I'm so glad they were happy for another too; shows true comradeship!

Have a beautiful day everyone!
