$25 Amazon.com gift card #giveaway just because it’s my birthday!

May giveaway

May has always been my favorite month! Mostly because I love the spring weather ☼ and I love it when the green leaves seem to just POP ☁ out overnight after we have a few good downpours! The birds are chirping like crazy, the bullfrogs are incredibly loud in the evening and oh…

 ♕ It’s My Birthday Month! Woot! ♕

So to celebrate turning 28 on the 26th… again …I thought a little reader appreciation giveaway was in order!

Who am I kidding, I haven’t seen 28 in YEARS – ugh! Oh well, you still deserve this ❥ plus, I want to try out this new giveaway program, just for fun! So that was a big fat epic FAIL!

If you went through the trouble of entering when the other one was in this post, you should be receiving an email with a special bonus word to gain some extra entries on the Rafflecopter widget below – yay! So sorry about the other one and thank you for all of the great feedback!

❥ Win a gift card!

Thanks to ME one lucky readers will win a $25.00 Amazon.com gift card. WooHoo! You can buy yourself {or someone else} a little something special!
