Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Do you know what today is? It's my blogiversary. Sort of.

My one year blogiversary was last week. I have been so busy that I did not notice until a few days had passed which doesn't sound like a big deal but I had been looking forward to celebrating the milestone. I am proud of myself for keeping up with the blog throughout day care drama, the birth of my daughter, becoming a stay at home mom to 2 under 2, leaving Vermont to live in Ithaca with my husband while he pursues his MBA at Cornell, and so on. It has been a crazy year and I want to thank you all for your encouraging comments and thoughtful insight. You have been wonderful friends and have made the difficult times much more tolerable than they would have been otherwise.

Thanks for sticking with me. It means a lot.

If my name was Oprah this is where I would announce that each and every one of you would get a new car. I am not Oprah. I am Veronica and I love coffee therefore you win a Starbucks gift card. Not all of you though because I am not Oprah.

Leave a comment below for a chance to win a $25 Starbucks gift card. Giveaway ends at 11:59 PM tonight.

***Update: Since I posted this late and then got sidetracked (play date, pediatric dentist, monkey knife fights, etc.) I decided to extend the giveaway to tonight at 11:59 EST & also give away another $10 gift card. Good luck :)***

Thank you all so much for visiting, commenting, entering, and just being awesome.
