Paying It Forward, Winner Style!

I recently had the chance to announce the winner of my Grand Opening Giveaway, Jill Jonsson! Jill won a travel prize pack that included a $50 gas gift card - something that everyone could use right now with gas prices being so high.

So I was very touched to receive a message from Jill stating she would like to pay it forward and allow me to use my prizes towards my Operation Relax mission of helping low-income families and couples go on vacations and honeymoons!! Isn't that wonderful? It really helped restore my faith in others, especially after dealing with having our car stolen last week.

In honor of her giving nature, I'd love it if all of you could take a brief moment or two and stop by Jill's Facebook page: and/or head over to her Etsy shop at: and leave a comment here with what your favorite item in her shop is! :) I already know mine - Jill was one of my featured Booksy artists with her fantastic Fairy Bookstore!!

Thank you Jill for your incredible generosity, and I can't wait until I get to send my first low-income family or couple on the vacation of a lifetime! :) 
If any of you would like to know more of what I do, please visit to read more, and visit my website at to book your next vacation and 10% of what I earn will go directly towards sending others on vacation!!
