My love, in front of my love tree (shaped light tutorial here).

Ten years ago this month, I started blogging. I had no idea that what started as a way to pass the time during a slow job would be so life-changing. We’ve had wonderful opportunities thanks to blogging, but the support we receive from so many of you is what’s most important to us. You help make our happy times brighter, and help make the sad times less lonely. We are incredibly thankful.

Last year we gave away a $250 gift card to a random reader, and we’ve decided to do it again!

This giveaway is open to every person on the planet. Sorry, dogs.

Enter by leaving a comment. You can leave one comment per day until the contest ends at 9pm PST on Wednesday, December 19th, 2012. Winner will be chosen by Prize will be delivered via emailed gift certificate to the retailer of the winner’s choice (the retailer must have gift cards available for purchase online). If winner lives outside of US, prize will equal $250 American.

This post is 100% sponsored by the Spohrs. Well, not Annabel, if she had $250 she’d spend it on princess toys.

Happy holidays, friends!

PS We are aware of the weird glitches with the commenting system and are trying to get them fixed. Thank you for your patience!
