I haven’t been feeling well, but hopefully that’ll change soon. All I’ve been doing is watching TV, lying around, and sleeping. It’s a hard life, but some one has to do it. :)


I was excited when I realized (by a random drawing) that the winner of my first giveaway is Courtney! Yay!

P.S. Thank you to all who entered! I hope you’ll come back soon because I’ll be featuring more blogs in the coming weeks, and yours could be one of them!

Now, back to Courtney. :) Courtney and I first connected through Angie’s blog. We both left comments on the same post, and lo and behold, we ‘met up’ in a way. Both of us don’t normally read the comments left on Angie’s blog (because there are SO many!), but we read each other’s and she came and visited my blog. After leaving me a comment with her URL, I was able to check out her blog.

Now that you have a little bit of a back ground on how we met, here’s why you should go visit her blog. For one thing, she’s honest. Courtney doesn’t pretend her life has been perfect. She tries hard to connect with others that have gone through what she’s struggled with. Also, she’s very interested in helping those that are still struggling today.

Plus, Courtney takes awesome pictures. Seriously, you should go check out her recent post with all the winter pictures. Stunning.

Here is how Courtney describes herself and her blog:

Hi my name is Courtney and I’m a blogaholic :) My blog link is http://www.throughmydarkness.blogspot.com/ . It’s about my life after childhood sexual abuse, how it affects me, the good, the bad, and the really, really ugly. It’s also about my amazing husband who is fighting liver disease, and my two kids, who are a photographers best friend :) Anyhow, I really just stopped to say hi, but I thought I’d enter, anyhow. :) <3

I hope you’ll stop by and say hi to her! I know she’d appreciate it. But be careful, you may get hooked to the realness you’ll find over there. :)
