A Heart To Bless

Our B.I.G. Christmas Giveaway Contest has proved to be our best contest ever. Thank you to all who took the time to share with us your stories and your heart to bless your spouse for Christmas. We wish we could award the prize to each of you, but there is only one grand prize.

However, since the grand prize was donated to us, we’ve decided to throw in a second and third place winner as well. The prizes are as follows:

First Prize – One week’s stay at Celebration Resort Villas.

Second Prize – $100 American Express Gift Card

Third Prize – $50 American Express Gift Card

You are probably wanting to know who the winners are. But since the winners will most likely be giving these prizes to their spouse for Christmas, we are waiting until Christmas Day to announce the winners on The Romantic Vineyard. If you have won, you already know you’ve won. We’ve contacted the winners personally to tell them the good news.

Again, thank you so much for participating. Your heart to bless your spouse has blessed our hearts more than you know!

Be sure to check out our Romantic Christmas Ideas under the Husbands Only and Wives Only tabs too. There’s still time to make plans for romance!
