Dear clients, friends, and fans,

Thank you for the fantabulous response to the ’17 RITD! πŸ’

At mint mortgage, we almost daily talk about how lucky we are to be surrounded with incredible folks like you. Because working here truly feels more like hanging out with friends and family than ‘meeting with clients.’

This year’s Rolling in the Dough amplified that feeling for us over and over again. Every entry shared a bit of love and allowed us to be a small part of your story. For that, we are grateful to infinity & beyond.

To all those who went wayyyyy above and beyond with their creations and used their time, talents, and love with extra special branded entries and videos β€” WOW. Just WOW! Your love moved us so much that we decided to split this announcement into two parts. The second part will be all about you so that you can get a glimpse at how much we appreciate your love & support.

Speaking of love & support, let us underline two more things we LOVED this year:

a. The awesome folks at MERIX and Optimum Mortgage who made this year’s giveaway possible.

b. The friendship and camaraderie we saw in the comments during the giveaway.

The sense of community you showed in all those little moments was heartwarming. Those moments reminded us of something the poet K. Gibran once said: “In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”

Thank you so much for refreshing our hearts over and over again. πŸ’•

Now, it’s time to announce the winners of the grand prize, aka two $1,000 cash prizes. (A friendly reminder: One of those two was drawn from all eligible entries, and the other one was awarded to the best branded cookie, as determined by a jury made of the mint crew members.)

The first $1,000 cash prize (drawn from all eligible entries) goes to… drum roll, please… Linda Baron from Etobicoke, ON! Congrats! Can we get a β€˜woot!’ for Linda?! 😊

Stay tuned… the winner of the best branded cookie is coming up in the next 30 minutes.

πŸ’ Sarah Schiess, founder of mint mortgage
