Hello everyone who shared your stories in the hopes of winning a copy of Caitlin Shetterly’s book Made for You and Me: Going West, Going Broke, Coming Home.

I loved hearing from you all and wish I could give you all a free book! In fact, I called Caitlin and begged, but she had run out of personal copies.

So, in the end we’re giving away two copies, to Kirsten and Marilyn, both of whom have had their butts bruised by this mean, nasty economy. Here’s a note from Caitlin to both of you:

Dear Kirsten and Marilyn,
I am so pleased that Andrea and I have agreed to send you my books! (We decided that your stories were both so touching, we had to do two!) The journey is sometimes hard, but there are always lessons and always we have the chance to do them with grace and to smile even when it’s hard. You both inspire me so much. Keep on going. And write me when you’ve read the book.

I’ll be dropping those books into the mail asap.
