    I shared your link on my Facebook page
    I follow your blog (thought I already did that earlier)
    And I congratulate you on your anniversary! Sending you a imaginative flower-bouquet with the most beautiful roses and lavender and herbs
    Wishing you prosperous years ahead and good luck with your goals!

    I'm not very good at winning this kind of games, that's why I am always reluctant to play, AND I was not quite sure, how your course does work!!!

    Anyways I enjoy being part of the 29 faces and additional challenges, that is indeed a lot of a win already :-)
    Hugs Ilona
