Wordless Wednesday and My Biggest Surprise Since I found out that Sweet Tea is not Sugar Free

Last Wednesday I submitted this photo for the Paper Mama photo challenge:

And in return, I received this:

The Paper Mama

Yeah, Baby!  I was/am so excited!  I've never really won anything before...and I mean, ever.  Like, not even a raffle, or a cake from the cake walk at my elementary school fun fair.  So, I guess I was due, and maybe God just thought it was about time to send me a little encouragement to keep forging ahead with my new-found hobby.  Maybe he sees that this hobby is good for my soul.  Maybe he knows that I am happy with a camera in my hand.  And, maybe, the picture was just good.

So, now I find myself in a vote off.  If you could be a dear and CLICKY HERE it sure would be great if I could get a few votes.

Happy Wednesday Friends!
