* Thank You Give-Away *

In honor of reaching a couple of personal blog milestones: over 500 Posts and 200 Followers, (which I just noticed is 201 Followers) I'm having a give-away. I'd like to thank everyone who reads my blog, whether you're a follower or not, and whether you leave comments or not. It's an honor and pleasure just having visitors, especially the ones that come back from time to time. That means I'm doing something right, I guess!

In order to be entered in this give-away, I ask that you just leave a comment, stating what you like about my blog....not about me personally...but about my blog. It would be really nice if you'd also be a follower, but that's not a requirement this time. You may certainly mention it on your blog, but again, not a requirement.

And a Mary Engelbreit journal, 5" x 7"

Yes, YOU could be the winner of all these goodies, (I apologize for the inferior photos. One of these days, I'm going to get a new camera. How many months have I been saying that!?) if you just leave a comment between tonight, May 9th and May 23rd at midnight CDT. I'll announce the winner sometime on May 24th. I hope many of you will leave a comment to help me celebrate!  Thanks again!

*Added note 5/10/11: I inadvertantly forgot to welcome my newest followers! Duh! Boy, do I feel bad!  Hello Kristine, Marydon & Buttercup! I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see!
