LET'S CELEBRATE!!!






Good morning all. 
     I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  We had some awesome weather to go for our early morning walks.  On Saturday we walked all the way down to the railroad tracks and we were able to walk within 10 feet of a couple different flocks of geese!  Most of them were young and had not been through a hunting season yet, so they just had the sentries watching us as we walked.  Only one small flock tired of us after a while and flew out onto the lake.  It was so early and we watched the sun come up over the clouds with the rays shining through.  I swear you would have thought it was a painting.  Then, when you add in a few flocks of geese and the way they sound and look you just know why I live here.  I don't remember every mentioning it, but when I was in my early teens I used to come here and the surrounding areas and go hunting with my Father.  I have always loved the geese and now that I am older I just love to hear them, and to see them fly overhead always makes my day. 
     Anyway, sorry I ran off there for a moment.  We did have a good weekend, but my youngest has had the flu pretty bad now for the last couple of days and that usually means that both Madison and I don't get much sleep.  Hence no post for the last few days.  Not even a Sunday with Lucy or Sunday.  lol...
      As you all are used to I usually post my pictures at the top of my post, but as I wanted to keep a little suspense I am going to leave that for the end.  Bahh ha ha!!!
     My post today however is a very special one for me as it marks my Two Year Blog-a-versary here at Gobeagirl.  If you don't know, it is pronounced Go-bay-a girl  (my hubby has a french name).  As most of you know by now one of my favorite stamp companys is The Greeting Farm.  I purchased Mermaid Anya and I was in love from that point on .  I love all the Anyas and Ians along with the Wild Sprouts and OMWord, I love, love the Creeper Crews.  lol... Soooo  I have been thinking for quite awhile now as to what I would want to give away for my special day.  At first I thought that I would collect some crafting goodies and send it off to whoever wins.   Then I thought about it and decided that I want you to be able to purchase whatever Greeting Farm stamp you would love to have that you just have not splurged on yet.  Plus it is so hard to buy all that awesome paper and then give it away.  lol...  I have to purchase it all on line and I love it all.   So I have decided that starting today and until September 15th that anyone who comments on this post would have the chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Greeting Farm. 
      So the rules are:  1. Leave a comment on this post.  
     That's all.  You are more than welcome to become a follower if you would like to, but you don't have to be to win.  If you would like to put this on your sidebar if you have a blog that would be appreciated, but again not required.  I just want to share something that I love with all the people that love it as well.  I also want to thank all the wonderful followers that I have had for quite a long time now.  You all mean so much to me and I love reading each and everyone of you comments. 
Thanks so much everyone.  I will leave this open until Sept. 5th at 10pm Pacific time and post the winner on Sept. 6th.  Good luck to all.   Have a wonderful Monday and I will talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G
