happy-birthday-giveaway (1)

blessed doesn’t say the half of it. i was so excited this morning to wake up and have another chance at living this crazy, beautiful life. so to celebrate the wonderful things in my world, i’m giving away a few things that make me super, super happy!

– $25 gift card to The Container Store. my obsession with containers is a bit ridiculous to most people. i love to stash things (and then promptly forget where the “safe place” that I stashed them is. But that’s besides the point).

– $20 gift card to Panera. i refer to this amazing place as My 2nd Office. you can often find me sitting next to the fire place drinking my 978th cup of Hazelnut coffee just about every other day. i try not to like that place so much, but i just can’t help it. and there are no signs of breaking this bad habit anytime soon.

– OPI Glitter Nail Polish “Spark-tacular.” I don’t think this requires a description of why i love it. For real, people. it’s glitter and it’s OPI. It automatically equals loads of fun. obviously.

    I want to win because the nail polish is awesome, Panara’s rocks when you need a place to hang out and work, and I’m moving soon and need help organizing. Oh! And the contest ends on my BIRTHDAY…. so how cool would that be to win?!? I found your site through a friend of mine. Your photography is amazing! Be blessed!

And additionally awesome bc you are offering to give people presents on YOUR birthday! haha that takes a pretty special person! Hope you have a wonderful day!

  6. ACall says:

    I’d love to win the prizes because I am also a container loving person who desires some organization in the world of chaotic things. The Panera gf is amazing because I need a celebratory meal. I just found out I won a short term mission trip to Uganda!!!!! HOOORAYY So even if I don’t win your bday amazingness I will still be blessed you are alive and God is amazing!!
    PS. the nail polish is to spice up my mundane fingernails of course!

  7. Sarah Sharp says:

    WOW!, i love that nail polish, and who wouldn’t love a panera gift card! As far as the Container Store I have never been, but I do love organizing, so I’m sure I would LOVE it!!

  8. mark Harris says:

    Anna, where do I begin? Your photos “picture” (no pun intended) not only the details, colors, lines, curves, beautiful faces, amazing eyes, sunshine, warmth, cool breezes, not to mention making you feel like you are there, but most of all your photos “picture” who you are. We love you.

    Mark and Carol

  9. Teri Salvino says:

    3. polish….well…so I can look smoking hot for my man!!!

    PS…ignore post under you vacation pics….duhhh…lol…I commented in the wrong area :o)~~

  10. katie says:

    I want to win b/c I’m in Italy and because you’re awesome! And because I save red apples from Panera for you…sometimes….. 🙂 Hope you had a fabulous birthday and Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!

  11. Oh, I know, right? Who the heck would turn down GLITTER nail polish!!??
    I totally want to win because I live practically within WALKING distance of Panera, and Oh.My.Word. the CONTAINER store?? The place is organizational CRACK!! So good, gracious, PICK ME!! Just think of the crimes that won’t be committed so I can support my habit(s). It’s almost like a public service.

  12. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I “like” you on facebook. But only because there isn’t a “love” option. If there was, I’d click on “adore.”

  13. Lydia says:

    I want to win because sometimes I drive to Blacksburg to go to Panera with my friends because we love it so much.

    And I need to be organized because my life’s a mess and my mom says that the messier everything around your life is the messier your heart is. Or something like that. Being organized on the outside helps your insides…. I think. Maybe I’m misinterpreting that.

    And my nails need to be able to shine for Christmas. And it would inspire me to sing that silver and gold song off of Rudolph the red nose reindeer song every time I looked at my nails.

    Oh, and cause your favorite color’s yellow.

    Happy birthday! Whenever it was… lol. 🙂

  14. Lori says:

  16. Jenn Long says:

    Anna, this is such a great giveaway and so indicative of your generous spirit!
    I need to win the container store gift card in order to save my marriage. Truly. If Rick moves one more pile on my desk, I’m gonna have to ask him to leave, or else find a new home for my desk.
    Happy Birthday Anna!

  17. Sarah says:

    I lovelovelove this! so adorbs! AND You are such a great photographer! I would totally request the Container Store Card. Never shopped there. But I love to stash things as well!

    I’d also be happy with Panera. That place is addictive! 😉 French Toast Bagels All the way! 😀

    Happy Birthday! Belated I think. 🙂
