If I win this, I intend to re-gift it. But with purpose. I have a set of 3 beautiful (boring) Chef's apron that my neighbor looks at while they dry on my clothesline.
She's 90 and she says that she wished she hadn't wasted years in boring aprons. She said she wished she'd had one that made her feel sassy and fun.
So if I win, you're going to knock the socks off my 90 year old neighbor.
I really wanted Suzanne to win this apron for you. I don't know her, but she clearly has a givers heart.
I was faced with a dilemma. Suzanne and I had an opportunity to grant a wish...how could we not find a way to make it work?
However, I also wanted to be fair to those who had entered and expected the drawing to be random. In the end, I knew the only way to get you an apron is if I made one specifically.
Made with you in mind.
I emailed Suzanne, and she sent me a little info, and when I found out your name was Lillian, I knew that God's providence was at hand.
You see, my name's Lillian too. My middle name, given to me in honor of my maternal grandmother Maude Lillian, who turned 90 yesterday.
I have always loved the name Lillian. So feminine. So sweet.
Maybe, just maybe, a bit sassy too?
What a pleasure it is (along with Suzanne!) to give you this apron.
