50th Post and a Giveaway
This is the famous and fabulous Mt. St. Helens.
This is the view I have as I drive home.
I should say it is the view on a sunny day. We in the Pacific
Northwest tend to take our beautiful mountains a little
for granted. But after several days/weeks of winter rain,
the sun comes out and rewards us with this.
I grew up going to Mt. St. Helens and staying at the
lodge, fishing on Spirit Lake. They are all gone now...I was
in Portland, OR the day the mountain blew up, May 18th
1980. Almost 30 years ago....hard to believe. The devastation
was enormous, tragic. But I still love "our" mountain and
am grateful I can see her so often. But on to the Giveaway...
This my 50th post. Not monumental to some,
but it is to me. Many times I have thought of
stopping the blog but just kept going. So,
making it to 50 is a big deal. You have probably
heard all the news about this wonderful new magazine,
Flea Market Style. A copy could be yours. It is full
of wonder! Our local Barn House is featured and
Queen of Tarte (just across the river) is in there, too!
Not to mention many more fabulous pages to enjoy.
How to win??? Just leave me a comment between now and
March 1st on this post and/or future posts. Every comment
qualifies as a chance to win and if you become a Follower you
get another chance.
I will draw the winner next Monday evening March 1st.
Good luck and as always, thank you for stopping by,
