Of Giving and Receiving (GIVEAWAY!!)

Posted by Dr. Patrice Smith

...and so, in keeping with this month's festivities, I want to give a little love to my fellow bloggers. Yes, it's a giveaway! This giveaway is a beautiful two tone (silver and gold) magnetic bracelet. It's a fashionable addition to your jewelry collection, and can be worn to complement casual wear, business attire or even evening wear. It's the perfect gift for the season.

Ensure that I can access your profile to retrieve your email address or simply place it in the comment section. The winner will have 24hrs to accept the gift or the gift will be given to the next random pick. Good luck!

...and for the receiving portion, I'd like to say many thanks to Robin at Insights and Belly Laughs for handing down the Happy 101 award. It's my second time receiving this award so yes, I'm very happy!

In keeping with the tradition of this award, ten things that make me truly happy are:
1. Blogging    2. Friends    3. Family    4. Helping others    5. Seeing someone smile    6. Traveling    7. Being Successful    8.  Accomplishing goals    9. Making someone else happy    10. Receiving awards :)

I'd also like to pass this award down to some other bloggers/blogs that make me happy:
1.Calebsmom at I'll Do Me for being such a great and beautiful mom.
2. Orville at Superdupes Blog for being uniquely you.
3. The girls at Life Laugh Latte for being so funny, witty and ALL female
4. Riz at Listen to Riz for being beautiful and down to earth
5. Tynga at Tynga's Blog Design for creatively and beautifully designing my blog over by Stu-DENT Diaries. Have you seen it? She's also VERY affordable!

The quickest way to receive love is to give love; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings (Unknown).

Spread the LOVE

    My wife wants a piece of jewelry for Valentine's Day. Yeah, she's like that.....a woman. And even though the contest ends well after, it will still be a nice "for no reason" surprise gift.

    As you know, I follow you and made this comment.

    This would be a perfect gift for my MIL. Her birthday is coming up and she is usually such a difficult person to shop for - but she (like most woman) adores jewelry.
