I am so excited to once again be taking part in the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. I participated last year and found wonderful new blogs and made some great blogging friends, too.
In fact, I've been richly blessed by the whole blogging experience, moreso than I ever imagined when I started my blog in July 2006.
A little about me:
I met my husband on e-Harmony on April 5, 2003 and we were married on New Year's Eve that same year. On that day I became a step-mom to two children. A year and a half later we had our son, Adam, and we became a family of five.... and the inspiration for my writing here.
I work full-time outside the home, running the business side of an art gallery, custom frame shop and design studio in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. I spend my days surrounded by color, fabrics, frames, oil paintings and a group of wonderful artisans and designers from all over the country. We also contract on large hospitality design projects which requires lots of drinking of caffiene and eating of peanut butter M&M's.
This year I'm also giving away a Blog Party prize. (I'm #100 on the 5 Minutes for Mom prize listing.) A regular feature of my blog is Jill's Book Bag, so I thought it would be fun to give one as a prize for the Party. The bag is a roomy green/navy/white striped tote. I'll fill it with two cookbooks, a book on entertaining, a $25 Target gift card (who can't use one of those??!!) and some other goodies geared toward the winner...maybe you love coffee, maybe you're an avid scrapbooker or tennis player.
Follow the simple steps on the prize page to list those prizes you'd most like to win. I hope I get to send this off to YOU!
Thanks for stopping by. Have fun visiting all the other parties. I'm off to do some partying myself.
