A Berry Delicious Giveaway!

Sometimes I can't resist puns.  It's my mother's fault.

How was your weekend?  Ours was swell.  It included a spontaneous kindergarten cheer camp for Brooklynn, which has since turned my daughter into an aspiring cheerleader.  I wasn't a cheerleader, mainly because I lack coordination, so as I watch her kick her legs arbitrarily, to land on one knee with her poms up, and I agree with my girlfriend, Heather--she definitely got her moves from her Dad.  She had to have.

I also did some garage-saleing and found some cool things that I'll have to share with you, finished my book, 'The Middle Place,' hung out with a girlfriend and her little boy and cleaned carpets.  The rain has hit us here in the northwest, so I'll need to start getting more creative indoors with my time.

A couple weeks ago, the blackberries were practically falling off their stickery vines.  So just as I should have, I gathered them up and made jam.  Two cases of jam!  Some of you reached out to me saying that you miss wild blackberries, so I've decided to giveaway one jar of my {Lemon Infused} Blackberry Jam to two separate readers!

To enter this {Lemon Infused}Blackberry Jam Giveaway:
You can earn two entries:

1) Follow this blog.
2) Tell me what you are loving about fall thus far.
Easy right?!

Giveaway closes Wednesday, Oct. 5th 11:59pm.  Winner announced Thursday!

Happy Monday, friends!

I just made a apple caramel cake to start fall off right, and it made me fall in love with fall again! The blackberry jam would make it 10x's better! :)

Suzie: I'm excited to read 'The Help.' I want to hold on the movie for sure, until I do. :)

S+S+S: I'm so curious what your S's stand for?! That carmel cake sounds heavenly. Eat some for me, will ya?

So, I'm not commenting for the giveaway, even though it looks heavenly(I have a jam filled cupboard, I just finished grape jelly this weekend!) I did want to agree with Suzanne-Read "The Help" it is sooo good! :)

I'm responding not for the giveaway (but hey if I win why not? loll) I wanted to first say LOVE the new look of your blog. Now what I love about the Fall thus far is the fact that my daughter is able to actually pick up her own leaves now. She's in love with flowers so the leaves is a new thing for her and she loves to pick them up and give them to me. We usually head back home with mommy holding a handful of leaves loll Ah i love her!!

Good luck to whoever wins!!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
