Blogging Anniversary Giveaway!

It's hard to believe it's been two years since I started my blog. Here's my first post, if you weren't in blogland back then. I have met so many sweet and generous bloggers, as well as others that email me. You are all such a blessing to me....really! I talk about you like you live next door. My family knows who I'm talking about.....sometimes I might have to add the name of your blog or how I know, you behind the name, but mostly they just are accustomed to hearing me talk about my blogging buddies and readers. Thank you....all of you.....that make a visit to my blog a part of your day or week, or even occasionally popping in. I appreciate it so much and I really look forward to hearing from you!

In honor of my two year blogging anniversary, I would like to hold another giveaway. This is a set of 24" shutters that Jason made. They are painted a barn red and distressed with black.



Here are the rules for entering:

Although I would love to open the giveaway to everyone everywhere, because of shipping costs, I must limit it to those within the US.

If you would like to enter, leave me a comment and letting me know you want to be entered, for one entry. I would also love to hear from you on what your favorite kinds of posts are from me. I do try to put variety into my blog (although I know you've seen MANY posts on this wait to Luke...thanks for hanging with me through these exciting times).

All followers (I still don't really like that word...I like faithful readers better), will get another entry. So be sure and let me know in your comment also that you are a follower or just became a follower, so I can add you in twice!

If you would like to use the above picture and announce the giveaway on your blog, that would be wonderful too. I will add your name in once more for that too.

A name will be drawn on Tuesday, May 18th at noon and announced soon after. If you're not a blogger, be sure and leave a way to contact you if you win!

Thanks again! God bless you all!

You're so cool! And I LOVE those shutters! I started following you because of your choice of decor. Then I learned of your adoption, and God used you to inspire our family. Amazing. I just love reading whatever God lays on your heart to write. {grin}

I have loved these shutters since you first showed them to us on this blog! They are awesome and I am sure I could figure out how to properly display them. You know I am a faithful reader and, of course, I do love the posts about Luke. Having gone through this with Sara and followed other families on this journey. I am posting on my sidebar though I really don't want the competition! LOL

Hi Tammt,
I am a new follower. I have read some of your post but not all. I would love to be entered into your giveaway. The shutters are awesome!!!! I love reading about your family. Thank you for sharing. But the stories of Luke touch my heart, because my brother and his wife adopted two boys. The word Adoption is a very beautiful word in my family. The boys have brought such joy in our family. Have a wonderful weekend.......Maureen

I would love to win these shutters Tammy. Jason is such a wonderful carpenter. I love hearing about how God has answered your prayers with your adoption of Luke. I love watching Colt and Joy growing up. Reading about your home and how well you and Jason work together to make it a loving place to raise your kids has always brought me pleasure too. Your posts about your relationship with your mom and dad are probably my most favorite though. I know what a blessing they have been in your life and your love for them always makes me smile.
Have a blessed weekend Tammy.

Never So Simple said...

Tammy,

Well, you know how much I love your blog and Jason's work. Please include me in your giveaway! I have loved every post the past two years. My favorite by far was the purple dress. It's just proof that God listens to our prayers but answers them in his time. That posts helped me realize that God is always right there beside me when I feel like giving it up he will not.

I always love the pictures of your home and stories of your family. Can't wait to read more about Luke!!!
