100 Followers!!! I Think That Warrants a GiveAway!

When I first started this blog, I never imagined that I would gain so much from it! I hoped that people would read my blog, but to gain 100 followers? Never! 



But it has happened! You can't imagine how excited, honored, and humbled I am! I know I am getting soppy, but you guys really inspire me and help me out. And when it comes down to it, we are "strangers" so to speak. But I think our virtual friendship is what lets me express what I want to and gives me the luxury of knowing that you all will give me honest feedback! Sometimes those close to you fear hurting your feelings when it comes to wedding related stuff and don't share their true opinions with you. I love that I have somewhere I can go to get true answers all the time!

So to honor all of you, I am hosting my first giveaway! And what else would it be coming from me...



Yup. You got it! A chocolate cookbook! Chocolate: A collection of over 100 essential recipes.

While I know some of you are not as enamored with chocolate as I am, I thought this was very fitting for my first giveaway! At the end of the day, if you win you can always pass it along to someone else :)

How to enter:

  1. For one entry, leave a comment on this post
  2. For a second entry, become a follower and leave a separate comment to let me know. If you are already a follower just let me know in a separate comment also. 
  3. For a third entry, post about this giveaway on your blog with a link back to here and again, let me know in a separate comment.

I will be using random.org to select a winner. The giveaway will remain open all the way through to the end of the month - Monday 30th November, midnight PST. I will announce the winner in the first few days of December. Please make sure I have a way to contact you!

Good luck everyone! And Thanks again! This is an exciting week!
