Happy Feast Day of OLG...and the winner is~~

Well, today's one of my very favorite days of our liturgical calendar!
I love a Marian feast day, as I'm sure, do all of you....
 and the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe,
Patron saint of the Americas,
well, it's so enchanting, so gripping.
Juan Diego's undying loyalty, the beautiful tilma,
the miraculous roses....
Beauty, faith, dedication, mutual devotion between Our Lady and her children?
And miracles, miracles, miracles?
It has all the makings of a bestselling book, a box office smash.
And more.
And aren't we blessed that it's  the foundation of our faith?

So today, to celebrate two years today of 
blogging here in this space,
I held a giveaway for some OLG and Christmas-y 
candles and goodies, as you know.
The candle up above plus a few other treats which you can find here.
Very simple but meaningful little somethings I wished
to offer to readers and friends for frequenting my little home on the web~!
to all who stopped by, visited, commented and entered!

The winner of the OLG and Christmas candle giveaway is
yay, Monique!
I just need your address and I can get these out to you asap.
I hope you enjoy the goodies,Monique!
