I blog on...and a giveaway!

Lately, blogging has been on the back burner for me. 
I feel like I've got lots going on, and nothing going on at the same time.  Ever feel that way?
I guess I am just not really making the time like I have in the past to sit down and blog.  
Sometimes there's not much to say.  
Sometimes there's no photos to share.  
Sometimes there's no recipes, crafts, or thrifting finds that seem worth my time.  
And sometimes life just seems too repetitive and similar to write about.  

But then I look back at the 400+ posts that have made their way onto my blog.  
Memories and thoughts captured.
And for each one I am so thankful.
Thankful I took the time to write and post.  

So... I blog on.
Not to impress, 
not to outdo, 
not to draw attention, 
but to capture and share a moment of significance to me.  
A moment I don't want to let slip by and be forgotten.
A moment to be remembered.

And to celebrate 2 whole years of first ever giveaway! Who doesn't love Katy Daisy?  I fell in love with the "You are My Sunshine" poster the second I saw it. So bright, cheery, and joyful, right?  Anyway, I was thrilled to find a set of Katy Daisy cards on a recent Marshall's run and am even more thrilled to get to share them with one of you!  Just leave a comment and you could be the lucky winner.  I'll take comments all day and announce the winner on Tuesday, February 9.  Good luck friends!
