GIVE-AWAY! :-) Just in time for the holidays! :-)

I am SO EXCITED!! :-)

I believe I have mentioned my love of all things Christmas, especially the music. What would the holidays be without Christmas music?!

My favorites are the simple, classic Christmas songs. The songs that make you think of family and friends sitting around enjoying one another's company; and just gives you the warm, fuzzy feeling of Christmas Spirit. The kind that just makes you want to curl up by the fire while drinking hot chocolate and watching the snow fall. (All of which I would totally do if it, you know, SNOWED in East Texas, and if I had a fireplace.) But, I digress...

I mentioned Eric Dodge's Christmas CD in this post. Eric's sound is smooth, melodic, and soulful. His heart belongs to country music, but he has a voice that could easily cross over to any genre of music. You do NOT have to be a lover of country music to enjoy this beautiful CD.


Eric has graciously donated one copy of his new Christmas CD, "A Christmas Wish" to be given away on this blog. THANK YOU, ERIC!! ;-) I'm serious, y'all; you definitely want this CD among your holiday music this year. The man outdid himself!

Now, I don't usually make y'all "jump through hoops" to sign up for my give-aways, but this one is SPECIAL. You only have to jump through one hoop. :-)

Go to cdbaby.com and listen to the short snippets of Eric's CD. Come back here and tell me which song you liked best. That's it. Simple, right? :-)

I will close the drawing Saturday, November 15th, and I will draw the winner at 6:00 pm CST. :-) The winner will then have 3 days to contact me with a mailing address, or I will have to choose another winner. OH, and it is open to EVERY ONE!!! ;-)

Did I mention how excited I am about this drawing?! :-) If you just can't wait and you want to order your own you may go to cdbaby, or you can get it straight from Eric here.

Love,
Wendy Darling
