It's the three-hundred-and-sixty-fifth day, so how about a giveaway?

Wow, today is my blogoversary. I was thinking back to when I started this blog-o-mine and realized both how little and how much my life has changed. I'm happy that I started this, and extremely happy that people actually read and comment of my ramblings, and that I have found so many wonderful blogs to read and comment on as well :)

In honor of reaching 365 days, I feel like having a mini giveaway. Let's say two readers will each receive a gift card in the amount of $13.65 (representing the 365 days of my first blogging year, of course) and a copy of one of my favorite books. The two books will be Jane Eyre and My Antonia (random selection of which goes to who), but the winners can each pick whether they would like a Barnes and Noble, Amazon or Target gift card.

How to enter you ask? Leave a comment (about anything) for one entry, and let me know if you are a follower for another entry. I'll announce the two winners in a week on Friday, April 2nd.

So, what has been happening with all of your lately? The weather here has been ridiculous. Last Friday and Saturday were beautiful, sunny, 70+ degree days. I'm not a big sun person, but after the craptastic weather winter has provided, I was loving it. The wind and rain were so bad at one point that two trees came down on the road to my house, blocking two roads so that everyone had no choice but to take the long route wherever they were going.

It didn't help that it took the city a few days to clear the path and get the streetlights working again.

I also took in a bit of the St. Patrick's Day parade on the 17th. It's hard not too as it's right in front of my job. I stayed and watched for about a half hour before heading back inside.

This guy was one of my favorites. He was laughing and joking around while they waited, but then quickly put on his serious face when they started moving again.

I hope you all had a wonderful week. TGIF though! I am so ready for the weekend - I just need to get through the rest of the workday first :)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Hey! Just found your blog through Cot90s. :]

Your profile layout is awesome! I just moved from NY (Queens) and your pics make me miss the city. Have you ever been to Smiler's Deli (it's the deli right behind the parade in the pic)? It's delish!!

Have a lovely rest of the week!


That's so lovely :)

We're having a drought here in we're praying for rain soon to ease the water shortage. The skies are playing though...they get gray and heavy but bring no rain...

for the love of pictures

Hey Bri :) Thanks! If I could, I would send some of this rain your way :) I hope you get some rain soon.

Enjoy the rest of the week!


Woah, the picture of the fallen trees kinda looks like an urban wasteland. With everything being wet and all. That's pretty cool! I mean, not really haha, but you get what I'm saying here.

P.S. I do happen to be a follower of yours.


Glad to see you back! I need to jump back on the blogging wagon.

Hope the engagement is going well!

I am a follower!


Yay for milestones!!

Count me in!

Hey Lee :) It was even stranger seeing it in person as the fallen trees had taken a section of the power lines down with them, leaving a section of the street dark. It was a bit unsettling.

Hey Kim :) Thanks! The engagement is going very well. The planning though, even though it's early, is already something else :)

Hey ____j :) I definitely will!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone :)
