It's a special week, people.
Yep, it was Mother' Day this week, which is one of my favorite days of the year. My sweet husband's birthday falls on this week as well. Lots to celebrate.
But it's also a special week for a different reason. It's the third anniversary of this blog.
I've written 291 posts. Lots of life lived in the Wolfe household in the past three years, and I'm so very glad it's documented in this very small space on the big world wide web.
I have to be honest. Sometimes I think of giving this space up. I don't have many readers. I don't even have a lot of time to dedicate to it. And most of the time, I don't even have that many words to say. I mean, what has to be said that hasn't already been said? What could little old me add to the thousands of other bloggers and authors who say it much better than I do?
My husband is my biggest encourager in this blogging thing. I just recently was convinced that I should quit doing it and he talked me back into it. He likes that I have an outlet for writing and sharing pictures, and that I'm beginning to have friendships with a few women out there in the blogosphere.
If you know me in real life, you know that I can be quiet. I'm not going to be the one who talks in a big group. I'll let other people do it. I like to listen more. So I guess this is my way of talking. Of telling my story. Of telling our family's story for any who might care to read.
To you, my dear readers. I thank you for reading. I thank you for any and all time you have spent here. Because it has been you listening to me and you encouraging me with your comments. That means more than you know.
....to honor this special week, I want to give something away.
I did this same thing a couple years ago, and it was fun for me to be able to give something to you.
I have a total of SIX Starbucks gift cards. One has $25 on it. The other five cards have $5 on them. I don't know about you, but I love to have gift cards for small things I wouldn't normally buy for myself. Sometimes it's the small things that make my day, even more than the big ones. Like a fun drink can really make an errand more enjoyable... why is that???
To win, leave a comment on this blog (NOT on the facebook comments) and tell me:
1. What your favorite kind of blog posts are OR what you might want me to post about in the future.
2. Tell me something about YOU, especially if I don't know you very well. I'd love to hear.
I'll post the winners on Friday, so we'll wrap it up on Thursday at midnight.
I look forward to your comments :)
