Blogger Generosity

Hello Friends.  

I hope you had a fabulous Valentine's Day.

Are you as amazed as I am by the kindness and generosity of bloggers?  I am blown away by the support network this communication medium creates.  When one blogger is having a rough time, the rest bolster their spirits and support them until the sun shines again.

I've also been surprised by the number of generous giveaways offered in Blogland.  I have never been a lucky person, but I have won many fantastic giveaways in the past months.  The great thing about giveaways, aside from winning, is getting to know a new blogger.  

Recently, I won another giveaway from Amy at Just Another Manic Momday.  Read about my first win here.  Amy is a sweet young mom from Illinois.  Visiting her blog is such a treat because she often posts pictures of her adorable toddler, Jack.  She also has many giveaways and is currently offering a $20 gift code to Pear Tree Greetings

Earlier this month, I won Amy's Valentine's Day giveaway.  This too was for a Pear Tree Greetings gift code.  I chose these sweet personalized Valentine's Day cards.  
I handed these out to the girls at work.  The guys just got a sucker since I didn't think it would be appropriate to give my male co-workers a card signed Love, La.

Now go over to Amy's and enter her giveaway!

Have you met Barb at Rocky Mountain Woman?  She lives in Utah and has a fantastic blog.  Do you love beautiful scenery, fantastic recipes, wine, and travel?  You will love Barb's blog.  If you attend Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursdays, you probably know Barb as she is a classmate.

She recently had a Sundance Film Festival giveaway on her blog.  The lucky winner won a souvenir from the festival.  Guess what?  I WON!  Boy, was Barb generous.  She sent me this fantastic jacket.  Check it out!

I love it!  It's going to be warmer here this week so I will be wearing this baby everywhere.

So, if you've been hesitant to enter giveaways, stop sitting on the sidelines and ENTER.  It's a lot of fun, you make my friends, and the odds are better than the lottery.  What's not to love?

I just won a give away too and being one who has never won a lot of contests I will say that I have been quite lucky and blessed in blogland. The generosity of some of these ladies is amazing, isn't it? Hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day!~Hugs, Patti
