My 100th Blog Post and a Give-Away!!

100th

**

It has been an incredible, evolving, self reflecting, soulful journey. Yes, that's a lot of adjectives! What started out a web site to journal our adoption story, evolved into a blog scrap-booking Max's life and now an all encompassing blog about my journey called- life.

This blog is my connection to family and friends. It showcases my triumphs, celebrations, interests and failures. I love that it gives me an outlet for my creativity and I get to share with you one of the joys of my life- Max.

Thank you my readers; family, friends and to my new community of bloggers (you know who you are!!). You give me the JOY and the INSPIRATION to write.

In celebration of today's 100th post. I am giving away a TWO year subscription to my favorite magazine, DIY Magazine by Better Homes & Gardens. In order to enter:

1. Click on my "Follow" button on the left side of my blog under the title "I love you guys". If you already "Follow" then you are automatically entered! If you have trouble following me, leave a comment with your email address.

2. Giveaway ends Friday, September 4th at 9pm EST

3. Canada Residents will receive a one year subscription.

XOXO x 100- Beachbrights


DIY Magazine and Better Homes & Gardens does not endorse me or my blog. Other than the fact that I am always stalking them on Facebook, they have no idea who I am. All give-aways and contest are provided by me, because giving brings me joy.
