Hey! It's a new month! And not just any month, it's February!
Around here February is significant. A lot of love happens for many people this month. But for me, memories--bittersweet memories--make me always grateful when this time of year rolls around.
Here are a few things:
- Valentine's Day. (Yeah, yeah... I'm a card and candy company patsy.)
- My son's birthday; he'll be 3 on the 14th. (He was Flagstaff's 2007 Valentine baby and almost didn't make it, what with a breathing and intestinal infection... all scary stuff, making the memory bittersweet.)
- My husband and I first started dating eleven years ago. Again, bittersweet. (Ha, ha. Just kidding, Steve.)
- And my mother's birthday. This time last year she had her final chemo treatment and was declared cancer free. That was a beautiful birthday to celebrate, as will each one to come.
And now to continue on the MONTH OF LOVE...
IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME!
I've made TWO baskets, one includes all kinds of writing goodies--notebooks, books on writing, pens, pretty little knick-knacks, and candy. The other is a reader's basket, with bookmarks, cards, sweets, booklight, and of course books! I'm sure I will end up slipping in a gift card or two as well. I have a serious illness called over-doing things.
I'm eager to give them away. So here are the two things you have to do: (1) post a comment telling me what month (besides December) is loaded with memories for you and (2) be a follower. I know, I know, making you follow is selfish of me, but I love outing lurkers so that I can make new friends. Truly, I want to know who you are. And then I want you to feel the blogger community love. By way of a chance to win a prize.
Oh, and post which basket you would prefer... Uhhhh... so I guess that makes three things to do. Sorry. Three things, then. There it is. Just do it by 8 am MST Valentine's Day. I'll post the winners by 5 pm MST that night.
So are you feelin' it? Does a basket call you out? Are you ready to share the love?!
