Blogoversary and Kindle #Giveaway Celebration

On December 29th I’ll be celebrating my one year blogoversary!  One year, man!  I can hardly believe I’ve been blogging for so long and that I’m still blogging with no plans to stop!  I’ve learned so much in this past year and my blog has really evolved.  I’m so excited by how much my blog has grown over the last year and how many great friends I’ve gained along my journey.

It’s a bit early to be posting about my first anniversary of blogging but I wanted to reward all of my readers for their loyalty and celebrate an incredible first year.  What better way to celebrate than by giving away a new Amazon Kindle E-Reader and a $20 Amazon gift card to get your Kindle library started?!  The giveaway is going to run for two weeks and this should get the Kindle to you in time for Christmas, so if you’re more into giving than receiving (or even if you want the Kindle for yourself) you’ll be able to enjoy it soon!

Ready to win?  Enter in the Rafflecopter form below!  For more giveaways, check out my giveaway page and my 2011 Holiday gift guide!
