Apron Strings

A few years ago, I was in charge of my family's Women's Retreat. I themed the entire retreat around aprons.

Once on our retreat, we shared our Favorite Things. For my gift, I gave each one of "my women" aprons that I had made just for them. Along with the aprons, I wrote a poem for them entitled "Apron Strings." This poem captures the way I feel about all my favorite people.

And you, my readers, are among my favorite.

So for this week's giveaway, I will be giving away an apron along with a copy of "Apron Strings."

To be considered, please leave a comment. The winner will be picked randomly by one of my babes. The deadline for the giveaway is midnight on Sunday.

Good Luck!
