Hi! And welcome. It’s my 29th birthday and I’m really glad you stopped by to chat.
I like birthdays. They’ve always been full of good memories for me and have involved nice things like presents and good food and family and friends. I hope this year will be no different. We’ll be celebrating quietly at first but we’re also planning a larger family meal because my dad’s birthday is in a week.
I haven’t really stressed about being in my late 20s yet. I mean, I might freak out a little next year, when the 2 will finally be replaced with a 3, but I’m not there yet, so I’m not worrying. I did make a “30 before 30” list of things I want to achieve/try/do before I’m three decades old, but I won’t be sharing it because it’s rather personal.
I think this year will be a good one. My second kid is due in late August and it will be all work and craziness until then – but hopefully, we’ll find time for short trips and a longer visit to the seaside. I’m pretty excited – not just about the baby, that’s a given – but I like my work as well, so that’s always a good thing.
I don’t know how many of you have been around long enough to remember my old blog design but the tulips above are kind of a nod to it. :D I’m so glad I changed it. I still like the current one, so I’ll be sticking with it even though it’s now one year old.
My blog anniversary (I dislike the word blogiversary) comes around on May 5th, so the following giveaway is a way to say thank you – both for being here as friends for me (and my birthday) and as blog readers (for my blog).
- One winner will get to choose one book from the list of books I reviewed here on the blog that received a rating of 4 stars/hearts or more in the value of up to 15 EUR. The reviews can be found here. You can also order the first part of a series if I’ve reviewed the third one, for example. I’m fairly certain anyone can find something of interest.
- To be eligible for the giveaway, The Book Depository must ship to your country. You can check about that here. The prize cannot be exchanged for anything else.
- The winner will be contacted by email and will have 48 hours to respond. In case they fail to respond, another winner will be chosen.
- I will check all entries of the winner and accounts used only for giveaways don’t count.
When is your birthday? How do you celebrate?
How did you find your way to my blog?
I’d love to hear from you! :)
