Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily…

Ok, I’ll go ahead and end the suspense.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their version of “love” for this month’s Order of St. Anne fun. I really enjoyed every single one of them.

And I really had a hard time picking a winner.

There were so many cute photos of Dad’s with babies and men vacuuming and kids, kids, kids. Eating ice cream. Sleeping side by side. Couples in love. Good stuff. All of it.

I looked them over. And over. And over.

And I kept coming back to one entry.

Not, really, because it was the best photo in the bunch (although it’s totally super cute).

And not, really, because of the story that went with it (although it’s a good one).

I kept going back to it, because it wasn’t the usual commenter on this blog that submitted it.

It was her husband.

Think about that for a second.

Her HUSBAND knew she read this blog, and went and entered her in the contest.

Does your husband read the blogs you read? Does he care enough to download and submit an entry to a contest for you, without even telling you???


THAT is what this was about.

Arise, Launch Exhaust. You are Annie’s Knight for February. And we’re all going to learn more about rowing than we ever wanted too.


  1. Awww…how sweet! Congrats!

    (and, just FYI, my husband reads this blog, too. Of course it’s usually when I’m dragging him over, saying “You HAVE to read this!”)

  2. I think I’m jealous. I talk about the Kaiser’s PENIS and I can’t even get him to comment.

  3. Thank you so much for the kind words, you made me blush. I’ve always been proud of Emily’s scrapbooking and take any opportunity to show it off.

    I will take my responsibilities as a knight very seriously! I hope you’re ready for a ding-bat like me adding comments on your posts!

  4. Good choice! I love it!

  5. WAHHHHHHHHH! (insert crying face here) Geez. My hormones are whacked. I’m totally crying. Loved it. So sweet. 🙂


  6. Very sweet!

    My husband knows I blog but if I want him to read a particular post, I have to send the link to him with a subject line that says “hot off the press”. Sigh.

  7. Nice choice. When I went through the entries I remember being struck by that one too!

    Thanks for inviting us to participate.

    We’ll try again next month.


  8. I’m so excited! I was in bed last night with the bug that has been going around our house, and Jay brought the laptop up to show me. It really perked up my yucky day.
