Some of you know Andrea as my one and only, real, live and in-person homeschooling friend. She is also the one person, besides my mother, that I talk to in some form or fashion almost every day. Her unbridled enthusiasm constantly pushes me to do things I would never otherwise do . . . like start a blog. She forces me to think big, dig deep and laugh really, really hard. I thank my lucky stars to have found a friend like her to share this journey with.
In celebration of friendship and perhaps a hint of things to come, we wanted to offer a giveaway full of fun stuff to ring in the new year. One person will win the package shown above, which includes a fabric bucket filled with 3 lavender-scented glycerin soaps, 2 ounces of lavender essential oil and a tiny “love” banner. To be entered into the giveaway, leave a comment by clicking the pale grey bubble directly across from the post title above. For a second chance to win, visit Andrea’s blog at waldorfsaladandcottagefries.com and leave a comment over there as well. Comments will close on both blogs at midnight December 31, 2012. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on January 2, 2013. Good luck.
