My first post was almost 4 months ago on 7/20/07 and I'm already on my 100th post. I guess I have a lot to say. I have learned so much great things through blogging and met some great people.
I am the youngest of a big family. With four sisters, a step-sister, a brother and a step brother keeping in touch can get tough even when some live in the same town. My family has always been such a huge part of my life. When I lost my mother at a very young age, my older sisters(we'll keep their ages out of this), my brother, and father became even more important to me. They are the ones I call when I need advice, comfort, truths or love. Through it all they have always loved me. I know we may not always agree with one another's decisions but we have always been there for each other. I am thankful for my father and mother for having so many children. I am thankful that they believe in me and are there when I need them. I am thankful that my mother lived and lived well. I am thankful that she gave me the tools early on in life to help me be the woman I am now. Thank you family and friends for all the love you have given and will give.
This leads me to "I am thankful" contest.
Since Thanksgiving is coming around the corner and it is a time for family and thanks, I figured a good name for my contest would be the "I am thankful" contest. To enter please leave a comment telling me who and what are you most thankful for? How do you show your thanks?
The ways you can enter are the following: your comment gets you 1 entry, posting about this contest gets you another entry, and you get 1 entry for each reader who mentions you here. I will be closing the contest midnight on November 25, 2007.
The prize you ask...well I'm excited about this one...the prize will be a pack of cards designed by my sister, Cristina, who just opened up an etsy shop. She's an illustrator and works for a newspaper. She has always designed great cards and stuff for the family and now she started her own company per say called Byvik ink. Please go over and check out her shop, too. She said that a bunch of cards will be going up this weekend...so keep checking back.
Thank you for reading and hope you enjoy my first contest.
