Blessed ~ Giveaway!

A "buzz word" idea that has been floating around among friends, here of late (whether real life or in blogging) is the idea of asking "What is your favorite word or your word for the year?"   I didn't have to think long when my girlfriend Amiee asked me what my favorite word was.  I decided,  rather I knew it was ~ BLESSED.

That is what I am.  Blessed.  Although I often forget way too many times how blessed I really am.  It totally amazes me that in just one year I would discover more blessing on top of what I already possess.  And that is the result of meeting many new blogging friends, rekindling old real-life friendships, and deeping the relationships that I already am in, as in ~ my own little family (hubby and kids) or even, simply close friends. 

~ Blessed ~

It's a no-brainer, the only way to give back to all of you ~ great friends ~  is to go ahead and offer another giveaway from Bags by Bevy.  I know I just hosted a giveaway not too long ago... but again, it's because I feel so Blessed, and am able to do so.  So, why not?

The giveaway will end on Friday at 8pm EST.  This giveaway is open to all who:  1.) leave a comment, 2.) post about it on your own blog (please be sure to come back and let me know) and 3.) become a follower of Treasured up and Pondered.  No emails this time. Please!
 Do one or all of the above- and your chances of being BLESSED have just increased.  Even if you've won before or were given one, as a gift from me, in the recent past.  It's okay!!  I love you gals, too much, to be that stingy.

: : However, I was going to make you all work for this one - by doing some sort of blog trivia - but we'll have to save that for another time ~ down the road. ;)  (Scott's idea)

Thank you all so much for being so wonderful with all your comments, your encouragement, your inspiration, and most of all your friendship.  It means so much... here's to another year ahead of blogging!!

  13. I wrote, "I want it." Just so there is no confusion with two Rachels. If I win I want it to be "fair and square"!
