Back from Florida

Guess where this is ;)

Hi all,

It's been awhile. I was hoping to blog while on vacation in FL but that just didn't happen. Our schedule was nutso!! Visiting family and friends and of course a random theme park or 2 or 3. We had a wonderful Christmas hope you all had a wonderful holiday season as well. We arrived back home last night, now to pick up where we left off. I've missed all my blogging buddies and readers. I'm missing the warm days and visits to parks and the almost daily walk my toddler wanted to go on outside. The sun is out here today but it's super windy and cold so no walks for us. :(

Here are a few shots from our trip!

At the Portofino Bay Hotel I stayed there with my BFF.

Our last day :( Breakfast with most of the fam.

Christmas Giveaway!

Well it's that time of year again! Time to give and be with loved ones. It's so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle and STRESS that this time of year usually brings. A lot of times I have to remind myself not to get caught up in it otherwise I'd go nuts!! Like most families I am the one who comes up with gift ideas, I do the shopping and wrapping, I do the cards and mail them out. It can be super stressful but this post is not about STRESS it's about sharing with you!!

I would like you to tell me what the best gift you ever received was, be it something physical, emotional or an event. Just for doing that I am going to pick 2 winners with the random number generator to receive a set of 4 bookmarks. Make sure you tell me which set you would like if you win. You can choose between my Season's Speak set or my Bistro set. These you can keep for yourself or give in a stocking stuffer both are worth $10.

Season's Speak Set

OK so I'll share with you my story. I think the best gift I ever received was when I found out my boyfriend (now husband of almost 10 yrs) Jason was going to follow me to NY. He went away to school when we were both living in FL, during this time I couldn't find work and my family had just moved back North to NY and I was starting to live on credit. It was getting bad!! I made the gut wrenching decision to move back to NY and I really didn't want to because all of my friends were in FL and I knew Jason would be coming back to FL after school was done. I didn't know if we could survive the distance since we had only been dating 4 months when he left. I was worried sick that it would be over and I knew by that time I had wanted to marry him. I got the phone call from him that he was going to move to NY so we could be together again and I was the happiest I had ever been. He came a few days just before Christmas and we've been together ever since!!! That was the best gift ever!!!!

Now it's your turn! Make sure you tell me how to contact you if you're not a blogger and also which set you would like!!!

Have fun!

Giveaway is open until Saturday at Noon! I will announce the winner then.
