Wow!! Where has the year gone? I can’t believe it’s November 1st when it seems like 2011 just began!?

Starting today, November 1, I will be beginning a new series entitled 30 DAYS of GRATITUDE. Everyday for the month of November, I will be sharing something I am thankful for that happened on that particular day.

With all the daily stresses and challenges we face on a regular basis, we tend to get caught up in the negative and are quick to forget the positive blessings we also have in our life. So for one month, I am forcing myself to be quick to notice those positive things.

I want you to participate! Everyday you may leave a comment on that Gratitude blog post for something you are also thankful for. On December 1st, I will randomly choose one comment from all of those posts to win this VERA BRADLEY purse. This is the Saddle Up Crossbody in Buttercup that I bought a few weeks ago and it’s valued at $68. I do love this bag and used it for a week or so, but soon realized I was too attached to my big carry-everything bag. So instead of it hanging in my closet unused, I want to give it you!

To enter
*Leave one comment on the 30 DAYS of GRATITUDE post for something you are also thankful for that happened on that particular day. Commenting will begin later today with the first Gratitude post.
