5 for 5 -{Giveaway time!}

April 18th will be my 5 year blogging anniversary. It all started with this itty bitty post. I cannot believe I have been doing this for 5 years and I cannot believe how much our lives have changed - in part because of the blog. I am so very, very grateful for all the experiences that I have had thanks to the blog and I am also extremely grateful for you sweet readers! What fun would all this be if I didn't have you traveling this journey along with me? So to celebrate and to say a HUGE "thank you" I am going to host 5 giveaways to celebrate the 5 years you have stuck with me.

So let's not waste anymore time - let's get started! 



Today's giveaway is a FREE copy of the upcoming Summer Edition of Matthew Mead's Holiday magazine!!
One of the great things that has happened because of the blog is some of the opportunities I have had to be a part of various publications, including the new issue of Holiday, which I get to tell what I love most about Summer!

I cannot wait for this issue because it has Meg's house in it and I just adore her house.

All the projects, homes and inspiration ideas in this magazine will help you create a summer that is as much fun as the ones from your childhood. I simply cannot wait to see my copy land in my mailbox!

To enter to win your own copy you can do these any one or all four of the following things:

1) Leave a comment here telling what your favorite thing about summer is

2) Tweet or FB about this giveaway (and come back here and leave me a comment letting me know that you did)

3) Follow me here on the blog (and leave me a comment letting me know)

  5. Congrats on your 5 years! Have so enjoyed getting to know you.

    Summer . . . now that I'm a mom to a college gal, I must say that summers take on a special meaning for me now because it means she'll be home and working as a counselor at a local summer camp. It means a house full of chatter, friends, a screen door slamming open and close way more than when it's just little ol' me, clutter everywhere, more loads of laundry, someone to laugh with (and we laugh a lot!) . . . all of it, heaven.
