Giveaway Time, for My Blogiversary!

It has been a little over one year since I began bloggin'.
I never imagined that this little blog,
that was designed to show my friends and family
all the fun adventures of RAISING ALLIKAYE,
would introduce me to so much!
I have bloggy friends...
the ones that always comment...
the ones that we share pictures and stories about our lives...
the friends that make me laugh...
the friends that make me inspired...
the friends that make me think...
the friends that cure my daily boredom!
I love my bloggy friends!
And boy do I ever love my real-life friends and fam too!!

***********************

Here are my 6 favorite posts over the past year...
I Hope You Dance
Arise My Love
"The Lauren" Braid
Cantaloupe and Burritos
Allikaye's Animal Noises
Memories of Deutschland

***********************

To celebrate this little blog milestone...
I thought...let's do a giveaway!
I always love me a good blog giveaway!
All you have to so is comment...
how easy is that!

I am giving away...
what else...
but some blocks!


Look at my ETSY shop...
and the winner gets to choose some blocks!
You can choose some of the pre-made blocks...
or give me a theme to work with...
for some personalized blocks!
You can look at some of my "sold" items...
for ideas of what others have ordered...
it is up to YOU....who ever the winner is!
I will choose the winner sometime this weekend!

Remember to comment!
Any one can win - even if you don't have a blog!
Just make sure I know where to contact you -
or just check back this weekend to see who the winner is!
And if you don't win...
You can still buy some blocks from me...wink wink!

Love to you all!
