My 100th Post! (and giveaway!)

It's my 100th post!

Can you believe it!? I don't think I expected to make it this far but I'm so glad I have!
I was afraid when I first started my blog that I wouldn't know what to say or what to talk about. (I still ask myself this every once in a while.) I shoved those thoughts aside though and pushed forward and so far havn't been able to stop! I'm so glad to have found the incredibly supportive, caring and intimate group of people in this gigantic blogosphere. I knew blogging was big but I couldn't have imagined how big or how it was possible to become connected to so many wonderful people.

Thanks for commenting and continuing to come back!
I love the friendships I've made with you all so far and can't wait to meet many many more of you!

Now for the giveaway. What better way to celebrate than sharing the love!?

The giveaway ends Friday the 17th.

You want to know what you're entering for?

My good friend Cynthia was gracious enough to offer me to give to you one of her medium sized canvas prints from her shop More Than A Card.
I specifically picked this one out out because of my love of butterflies and the quote is one of my favorites.

I was not sure if you wanted quotes from Cynthia's work or others ... she has many great ones. I recently found this one that I really like:

"Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow ~ For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow ~ So quiet down cobwebs, Dust go to sleep I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep." ~Anonymous

I found it on the blog Muthering Heights! http://mutheringheights.blogspot.com/
