Hop into Spring giveaway!



I don’t know what it’s been like for the past 5 months in your neck of the woods, but here in Southern Indiana, it’s been one of the worst and longest Winters ever. Spring officially started last week, but we’ve seen snow and sleet since then. But I think I can see a light (what is that big yellow orb in the sky???) at the end of the tunnel. Flowers are beginning to bloom, so Spring is here and it’s time we kicked Winter to the curb and celebrate the best way I know how with a gadget giveaway! It’s easy to enter, so pull off your mittens and click through!
