My First Contest!


Blog Posted:10/13/2013 2:39:00 AM

Hi everyone,

After many months away, I'm very excited to be back and sponsoring my first contest, Beatle Mania! Check out the contest page for details. Every entry will place as long as the rules are followed...I also want to say thank you to everyone who kept me in their thoughts and prayers while I was gone. I posted some pictures of my baby, Luke, on my photo page (the reason for my absence). I had a difficult pregnancy, but he is beautiful and worth every minute of it. He was born on May 24th, 7 lbs and healthy. Now, as a mom of two boys, I need a creative outlet more than ever so I hope to be writing and reading all of your wonderful poetry whenever I have time.

With much love, Rhonda

    Rhonda, just saw the pictures. The two boys are adorable. What a CUTE baby. I remember those days when I had my two so young with me. I was in my early 20's and time has gone so quickly. Missed you, and I hope you come back strong.
