Giveaway hop Winner + yearbook quote Decision

Thank you to everyone who entered! I'm happy to announce the winner of the $10 Gift Card to The Book Depository (or a book order under $10) is...

CARLY!

Congrats! I have emailed you, please respond within 48 hours!

Also, if you remember, a couple weeks ago I had this post asking you guys for some input on what to put as my grad write-up/yearbook quote. You guys had som AWESOME suggestions, so to everyone who commented/emailed me, thank you!!!! I appreciate every one of them, and I was actually really close to choosing a few.

However, I did end up going with something that's a... bit more... predictable, shall I say? Well, for me. Yep, I chose a Harry Potter quote xD


Well, Dumbledore one, more specifically. Here is what I wrote, the first sentence is paraphrased since I don't remember it word for word:
Thank you to all the amazing people who made these past five years incredible. "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live, remember that." -Dumbledore

I liked the idea of not planning and dreaming all the time and remember what is here and now, because in the wise words of Sarah Dessen, forever is now... =) Maybe I'll think differently 10 years from now.. What do you think of the quote?

And I seriously debated using this one too, but it kind of had too many letters...


And again, many many thanks to everyone who contributed their thoughts!!
