Happy Birthday #2

Happy Birthday, beloved blog, il bel far niente.

Yesterday was my 2nd blogiversary!

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to communicate with all of you in this way. 

Thank you for supporting my writing. Thank you for reflecting your beauty by commenting. Most of all, thank you for simply being here.

Just like last year, I’m going to do a big giveaway to say thanks…but this year I’m giving away twice as much:

If I get 50 comments, I’ll give one lucky winner a $50 gift.

If I get 100 comments, there will be $50 gifts for TWO lucky winners.

This year I’ll give you the opportunity to choose a gift certificate toward products or services from any of the nearly one hundred (100) Magic Wand Collective women small business owners I am privileged to work with as Community Organizer. There are so many awesome prizes to choose from!
