    This would be great! My sister was born in a dragon year. And she fits those trademarks too. Genuine, honest, confident. Lucky girl.

    My family is my dragon! My dad who is bold and genuine, always super nice to everyone. My mom, she is confident and honest, always tells us what she thinks of anything! My husband who is loving and loyal. He is always there for me. I have to say I am a little spoiled. LOL.

    I am spilling a secret that I have not shared with the world yet. I am happy to report that after 2 years of trying to conceive, our first child will be born in the year of the dragon! While we still don’t know if they will be a boy or girl, but are sure that under the dragon sign they will be a bold, brilliant ball of joy for us. :)

    MY CHILDREN are my dragon traits in my life!!! They are confident, bold, honest, genuine! I am so blessed. With their father in the United States Navy my children (4yrs old and 8yrs old) are all these qualities and more. To celebrate whom they are with this prize would be an amazing gift! Thank you for the contest and all your clever ideas :)

    Although my mom wasn’t born in the year of the Dragon, she embodies all of those traits, all the time. She never wavers from who she is, regardless of the situation or who she’s dealing with. My mom is definitely my Dragon.
