And the Winner is....Susan!


My beautiful cousin, Susan, is the winner of my Mary Kay giveaway today!!! Yay-and yahoo!!!! She was number #9 on my Random number selector.

Let me tell you more about adorable Susan...she's the mother of two awesome kids: Xander and Buffie. Susan lives in...

Webster, NY with her husband, Rob, two middle-school aged children, and lab-mix, Shadow. She is a stay-at-home mother who enjoys cooking and artistic photography. Susan and Rob are partners in Generonix, a telecommunications equipment and design corporation, based in Rochester, which sells equipment for the deployment of municipal Wi-Fi and solutions for FTTH (fiber to the home)
Cool, huh?! The amazing thing is that even though we're biological cousins-we've NEVER met face to face. Her Dad found me on a family search web-site! Uncle Joe is my natural father's brother. They had no idea that my sister, Sherri and I even existed. So, we've been trying for a few years to catch-up now. Susan and I are linked by different health issues. I went and had testing done for a family gene...and discovered that I had the same changes. If it wasn't for Susan and her Dad, I would of never known. She's a piece to the puzzle of my life-that was missing for so long. We both feel that our friendship was meant to be. Even after being raised in different families, states, religions, and neighborhoods...we found each other! She has words that calm my inner soul and help me reach out to my biological Texas relatives. Thanks Susan for all that you do! Sherri will be happy to know that you get the Mary Kay of the day :)
