I interrupt my scheduled recipe post to share a personal note...





I won a giveaway from Emily Giffin!!!!!!


The prize package includes: an advanced, autographed copy of her new book HEART OF THE MATTER (which comes out May 11th), an invitation for 2 to her launch party on May 11th in Atlanta, 2 night stay at the Loewes Atlanta Hotel, dinner for 2 at Bistro Niko and a $200 gift card to cover traveling expenses.
This is all surreal and I am still in shock. Emily Giffin is one of my favorite authors. Her writing is relatable, heart-warming and addicting. I have read every single one of her books and urge you to do the same. You will not be disappointed!! Her first book, SOMETHING BORROWED, is going to be a movie next year. With an all star cast including Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, Colin Egglesfield and Steve Howey. I heard that Emily is even making a cameo appearance.

I can't believe I get to meet her! I hope I don't forget to move my lips and talk. :)
I am looking forward to reading HEART OF THE MATTER next week!
