Are you ready for the eight
great days of my
When I was a little girl, the July 4th holiday always meant piling in the car and heading to my father's rural hometown about 45 minutes south of our city to see relatives and enjoy a potluck of delicious picnic fixings. Being of Italian heritage, my family had plenty of good cooks in our ranks, and the buffet table was full of delicious casseroles, breads, desserts, and salads. The highlight of the day was when my Aunt Mabel brought out the frozen scoops of Dietsch's ice cream, direct from Findlay, Ohio, and we each got to pick our favorite to enjoy on a cake or waffle cone! Sometimes we would even stay late to watch the fireworks burst over the farm fields and chase lightning bugs!
Qualifying for a chance to win the featured prizes will be as simple as either liking and commenting on that day's Facebook page post OR commenting on my newest blog post! Some of the prizes will be e-mailed, and some will have to be received through snail mail. I feel blessed to have had many of my fellow bloggers and TpT sellers contribute to this celebration. Generosity is their middle name!
Today's prize, the first of the eight that I'm pulling out of my holiday picnic basket, is for the person out there who has always wanted to be a blogger! Now is your chance to "take the plunge" like I did just seven months ago!
Just tell me why you've always wanted to be a teacher-author and what you'd like to title your personal blog in the comment section below and include your e-mail address! Amanda will then help me pick a winner to be announced tomorrow morning! There are two dates you will be able to choose from! If you pick the August 16th session, I will even be there to help you! This prize package covers only the cost of your ticket to Blogger Boot Camp and lunch that day, not overnight accommodation or transportation needs.
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to come back tomorrow for a chance to win yet another one of my favorite things AND enjoy this....
The anticipation and excitement abounds!
Until then, continue to read good books, teach your children well, share your story, and hold a song in your heart!
