Birthday Giveaway

In 200 posts and 365 days of blogging, here are my words:

No big events or changes have marked this year, but it's been a bit of a slog. It's been a blessed rare hour when Mark is home and I've been working double time to get my business off the ground. Through it all, blogging has given me a therapeutic sense of connection and voice.

Since my sister Nancy was the inspiration for my blog, the birthday present comes from her too. Leave a comment on this post and I'll enter you in a drawing to win something from her ChicMade etsy shop. Mention a memorable or favorite post from pressed down and shaken together, and I'll enter you twice. Contest ends Friday at midnight.

  1. Thanks for having a birthday giveaway! This is fun.

    I read your post about The Green Cardigan and it was absolute so sweet! You know what I really loved? It's that after I read it your hubby posted the very first comment and said "here's to the next fifteen billion years." It was so touching. I'm happy for you two!

  5. What a cool word thing. You will have to show me how to do it. I love this blog! It inspired me to do my own you know--just as it inspires me to do a lot of things. I don't know if I could pick a favorite entry they are all great, but I really love reading "notes from the underworld" (I think that's what you call it)
