in our hands....

It's for real.  
The cookbook is now in our hands!

We had been tracking the truck as it slowly wound it's way west and north...
and knew it would be in Canada any time.

When the truck arrived at Lovella's doorstep...
we wasted no time in heading down there.

Packing slips...
and many boxes of cookbooks...
but she had it all organized.

As for her personal copy... had already found it's rightful place on her kitchen counter.

We counted out books...

...and loaded our boxes
...and returned from whence we came.

It's been a long time in the works...
and we can hardly believe it.
But that's all I'm saying...
you will just have to see for yourselves.

God has given us two hands...
one to receive and the other to give with.
~Billy Graham 

 We at MGCC all feel that we have been given much...
and wish to share of that bounty with others.
All author royalties from the cookbook will be donated to charity to feed hungry children.
We are so excited about that.

Now that we as authors have the book in our hands...
you can be sure that yours will be soon to follow!

And if you would like a chance to win a copy...
head over to MGCC where we are having a give-away!

We had a big birthday party last night...
and celebrated three milestone birthdays all at once.
Any idea what I might have brought as gifts?
Why...cookbooks, of course!
They arrived right on time.
