Another Birthday Princess

Kate Middleton isn’t the only princess with a birthday Thursday.  It’s my mom’s birthday, also.  You might recall that I had a birthday on Tuesday, and thank you for the good wishes.  This is an exciting week here at The 2 Seasons because it’s also our blog’s third anniversary.  Woohoo!!!  And guess what! As is the tradition around here, you, our wonderful readers, get the gift.  Well, at least one of you gets a gift, and it’s a great one.


 Mom bday

Mom probably wouldn’t want me to show this photo because she isn’t wearing a bike helmet here, and she always wears a helmet. This shot was taken in Laos on a city bike tour, and they didn’t even have helmets.


As our birthday gift to you, one reader will win a $50.00 gift card to Etsy.  We gave away the same gift last year, and it was really popular.  All you have to do is use the rafflecopter below to enter.  The drawing will close at midnight eastern time on Monday.  We will announce the winner next Thursday.

    Happy happy to you, ladies! I have a Pinterest wish list board that includes jewelry, fragrance and candles (mostly). I’m obsessed with coconut lately, so I would probably buy a Sydney & Hale Coconut and Macadamia candle with this gift certificate. Thanks and cheers!

    Happy Birthday to two beautiful friends!! Hard to say what I would buy with an Etsy gift card… many wonderful choices. Just ordered a baby blanket and pillow cover from a vendor called The Red Pistachio. Shout out to her for such darling products and great customer service.

    Happy Birthdays! How exciting that both of you have birthdays the same week, and decided to start this wonderful blog on your birthday week, too.

    I love Etsy, and have my eye on some Chiang Mai Dragon pillow covers, among a few other things. Great way to celebrate your birthdays; someone will love getting a gift on their “un-birthday!” Blogless Peggy
