I actually have hundreds of photos from this weekend, but I’ll limit myself to a few because today I have something super exciting to tell you about!! (Well, I’m super excited, anyway.)
Last week, I read this quote by Augusten Burroughs:
“Generosity feels something like gratitude and pleasure blended together.” - from This Is How
And it really got me thinking. I mean, one, that’s so right. But also, it seems true to me that, when we feel grateful and happy, we become more generous – more open-minded to others, more patient, more giving, etc.
So, in honor of feeling grateful for my readers, old and new (and crossing the 100 fan threshold on Facebook).
And because this week is Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on gratitude and blessings.
And because Christmas is coming up, a time to share and give….
I’m hosting a giveaway right here on my blog!! Jerin, from Out of the Blue, makes amazing vintage-styled jewelry (seriously, you should check it out…I’m in love with these Cameo Bobby Pins), and when I saw the necklace I’m about to show you, I gasped, and thought, “I want that.” That would be perfect for
me my readers! And when I contacted Jerin, she most generously offered to contribute one for my giveaway.
People are awesome. Jerin is awesome.
Wanna see the necklace?
Here it is:
They’re word necklaces! Aren’t they charming? If I were to get one, my word would be COURAGE. What would your word be? The winner of this giveaway will receive a necklace with the word of their choice. (Or, if you’re gifting it to someone else, the word you’d want them to have.)
All right, so here are the rules to play. To participate, you can enter in up to three ways:
1) Leave a comment on this blog post telling me what word you’d wear in the necklace.
2) “Like” my Facebook page and post a comment on my wall with the word you’d wear.
3) Mention this giveaway in a blog post with a link back to this post and be sure to send me a link to your post too!
So that means you can have as many as three entries to win!
The giveaway closes at midnight, Friday, November 23 Bangkok time. (In case you’re wondering what time that is, there’s a nifty little clock for your reference at the top of the page. It’s easy to remember though: just add 12 hours from Eastern time, so that would be noon on Friday, EST.)
Bonne chance! And thank you.
