GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED) :: A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of my Favorite Things GIVEAWAY on Ribbons Down My Back :: Go to the blog for a chance to win With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin, Bells are Ringing staring Judy Holliday & Dean Martin, and The Piano Guys: Wonders CD

It's hard for me to believe I've been a blogger for seven years. In July of 2007 I started my first blog, which is a personal scrapbook of sorts, to share with my friends and family. I still post on that blog today.

In January of 2010 I started getting into photography after using my parents DSLR for the first time and started my first public blog, Sereina's Photography. I blogged there for three years and it was then that I discovered the wonderful community of bloggers around my age, especially homeschooled ones. I never really truly realized how many homeschoolers were out there until then. It's such a great community of girls and I think it's cool how everybody sorta "knows" everybody, even if we don't follow every blog.

I've been truly blessed to get to know so many of you and I don't think I've ever said how much I appreciate every single one of you. Every comment left on my blog brings a smile to my face and I've enjoyed so many blog posts written by you all. Thank you all for making this community such an enjoyable place! You all are the best. :D

I wanted to do something for you all.  Ribbons Down My Back is over a year old already and I've never hosted a giveaway before, so I thought it was about time I did! Since I wanted to share a variety of items I came up with a few of my favorite things to giveaway to one of my readers! Below is a list of everything included and a little about it:

A Few of my Favorite Things GIVEAWAY on Ribbons Down My Back :: Go to the blog for a chance to win With Every Letter by Sarah Sundin, Bells are Ringing staring Judy Holliday & Dean Martin, and The Piano Guys: Wonders CD


Bells are Ringing DVD

Musicals is my favorite movie genre and Bells are Ringing is one of those hidden gems in the genre. It's not well known, but it has a fabulous soundtrack and stars Judy Holiday and Dean Martin.

With Ever Letter by Sarah Sundin
This is the first book in the Wings of Glory trilogy that follows three flight nurses in the Mediterranean during WWII. Historical fiction is my favorite genre and no one does it better than Sarah Sundin. This also happens to be the first book of her's that I read myself.

The Piano Guys: Wonders
I don't listen to a ton of modern music, but when I do many times it's The Piano Guys! This is their third album which was released in early October and has some awesome tracks such as Batman Evolution, Let it Go, Story of My Life, and Kung Fu Piano. If you haven't heard of TPG's before, check out their YouTube channel!
