Live Like You Were Dying

...Cue the Tim McGraw soundtrack!

Seriously, thank you for everyone who participated in the BEFORE I FALL giveaway contest! I have selected a winner (literally, out of a hat--Marianna, your name came up, and I'll be emailing you shortly), but I am sincerely moved by all of the amazing responses I received in answer to the question: What would you do on the last day of your life?

Some people's ideas: bungee jump. Attend a live show of a favorite band. Travel somewhere new. Climb a mountain. Buy a really phenomenal dress (definitely agree with that one!). Eat tons of food--'cuz who cares about calories? (Also agree with that one, incidentally.)

Again and again, though, people said the same thing: on their last day, they would spend time with the people who matter most--husbands, wives, sisters, brothers, parents, friends, pets. I think that's super significant. Not to be a cheeseball, but it's that time of the year when we are supposed to celebrate our most significant relationships and family ties, so get a jump-start on your Last Day Agenda and let the family- or friend- bonding begin! I know I will. :)

Also, for those of you who did not win (sorry!!), you can enter to win my book on Goodreads here. Additionally, since this is the season of giving, I'll be hosting another contest soon in which I give away not one, not two, but three prizes to the lucky winner, so be sure to check back soon!

Hope everyone is staying warm and enjoying the holiday season.
