Birthday Giveaway

• 25 October 2008

My step-Grandma introduced me to a sweet little tradition a few years ago.

On her birthday, she gave everyone in attendance to her party a dollar for every year they were...mind you there were several grown adults at this party. I watched her give out several hundred dollars to people and you could tell she just loved watching their delight. She gained a lot of happiness from giving to others, even on her own birthday.

I'm not giving out money today...sorry :) Instead, I'd like to share something else fun with all you weekend readers. Here is a little something that is sure to brighten your day--a Cath Kidston Stationery Set from the always fabulous Chronicle Books.

Like all other giveaways, simply leave a comment on this post and I'll post a winner later tonight. I'll keep this giveaway live until 10 p.m. After that, I'll post a winner...unless I'm still out partying it up :)

Have a lovely weekend!
