Congratulations to Hollie Geitner, our winner, of this year’s Mother’s Day competition.  Below is Hollie’s story.  As this year’s winner, Hollie, wins a dozen Smiley Cookies a month for the next year.  Congratulations Hollie!


I had always wanted to be a mom, but my dreams were set aside after suffering a complicated miscarriage at 14 weeks of pregnancy in 2004. The next year, my husband and I decided to get divorced after four years of marriage. It was a very painful and trying couple of years until I met my now husband, Michael. We got engaged in early 2008 and shortly thereafter found out we were pregnant! We had a wonderful summer wedding and our attendants were his three children from his first marriage. On Halloween, our baby boy, Preston (aka Boo), was born, adding to our family. For my first Mother’s Day, my husband gave me a very special and beautiful sterling silver bead bracelet that spelled out “Preston.” I wear it every single day and think how lucky I am to have a wonderful husband, precious son and three bonus children who we see every other weekend. Life sure has some twists and turns, but if you go with it, your dreams will eventually come true!
