Celebrating life with a little giveaway

I am happy to say that I had some time to smell the flowers. The battery was recharged a bit and definitely was tested. It is nice to be back blogging again.

To celebrate life and my 100+ post, I have a French inspired giveaway.

The rules could not be easier, just leave a comment to be entered into the drawing.

You have lots of time to enter. The drawing will end on the evening of October 4th (Saturday).

There are 3 goodies. I was fortunate to receive 2 Chanel Anti-Fatigue Gel Masks. One for me and one to share so I thought I would share with my blogging friends. This is one of my favorite things. I know mentally I feel less tired when I use it and that is what it is all about!

The print is one that I got in Cannes. It is of Le Suquet and the port. I think it is such a peaceful print.

Last but not least, a set of 16 note cards featuring a vintage Paris and New york scene.

I am off to a birthday celebration but will be catching up this week with all my blogging friends.
I want each of you to know how special you are to me. When I started blogging I didn't know what to expect and this journey has been incredible thanks to all of you.

Have a truly blessed weekend.

Hi Barb, thanks for your sweet comments while I have been away. It has been such a busy few weeks that I just had to go cold turkey in order to cope. (Plus the fact that I have only had internet access for one day out of the past two weeks.) I am also trying to reprioritize some areas of my life. But I miss my blogging friends, so I decided to make some rounds today to see how everyone is doing. Congratulations on your 100th post!

Hi Barb!
I'm so glad to see you back to blogging! Thanks so much for your sweet comments about Paul Newman. It has been so sad these last couple days ~ there is no one today who had his style and charisma.

CONGRATULATIONS ~ HAPPY DANCE ~ 100 POSTS!!! You know, girl, I just have to enter your fabulous giveaway. You have outdone yourself with those wonderful prizes!! If I don't win, it is okay, though. I'm a winner already because you are my friend!! (((HUGS)))
