I certainly had no idea where this "blogging thing" would take me. I have visited so many beautiful, interesting blogs and met the most fascinating people! I can't even remember what it was like not to take my first cup of tea straight to the computer to catch up with everyone. And I really miss that time when I am without my PC for a few days!
I have learned to look at the world from new perspectives. I have been inspired by you, and taught by you, and have experienced tremendous personal growth as a result. Each and every one of of you who take the time to read and comment are very special to me. I feel an affection for each of you that I would have thought absurd a few months ago. I am excited to strengthen these friendships and to see what and who the next 50 posts will bring into my life!
In celebration, I am hosting a giveaway!
The gift will be one of my very favorite books, Nell Hill's "Entertaining in Style" by Mary Carol Garrity. This book is full of the most beautiful photographs of her table settings, holiday vignettes, and even a recipe or two. You'll receive it just in time to use some of her Fall decor ideas. (I just HAD to get my new leopard print reading glasses in the picture! *Ü*)
Your chance to receive this gift is as easy this:
Leave a comment on any post from today, August 1 through Friday, August 8th to be entered. I will draw the recipient's name on Saturday, August 9th. Feel free to spread the word - the more the merrier!
Good luck! Chris
