Let's Celebrate!!! Independence Day! And... a giveaway


Independence Day!

As we get ready to celebrate the 4th of July, I'm reminded of all the ways we are free.  I don't have to sneak to read or write.  And I can say exactly what I want. 
This particular holiday has always been a favorite of mine.  I always love the opportunity to get together with family and just chill...  I can remember playing all day and eventually gathering on the front lawn for fireworks with the neighbors.  Good times. 


I'm participating in the Independence Day Blog Hop this year.  Stop by The Blog Hop Spot and check out the many participators.   There are some GREAT prizes to be won.
For the hop, I'm giving away a $15 Amazon Gift Card.  The contest will start today and end Wednesday at MIDNIGHT!  Winners will be notified by email.

The best part?  You don't have to do much to enter.  All you have to do is follow my blog (either by email or blogger) and let me know that you did by posting a comment!  That's it!  Current subscribers and followers are already entered.  Good Luck!

  38. I'm not an American, so we don't celebrate the 4th over here (well, at least not on the 4th!). So all I did this year was take part in this hop ^.^ That's a celebration, of sorts.

    Happy Independence Day :D
