Happy Thanksgiving: My Top Picks & A Giveaway

As I reflect on this very hectic, adventurous year, I want to thank all of you who have continued to support me and have become regular visitors at the Nest.  I am more blessed with support than I ever imagined when I started this blog a mere 9 months ago.

I am thankful, too, for those who are new to the Nest.  I look forward to sharing all sorts of information with you.  I hope you will return often and share what you know with the rest of our community.

Lastly, I am supremely thankful for my wonderful family.  This has been an incredibly busy year.  I’ve had irons in many fires and worked long days (and nights) trying to balance it all.  They have been unbelievably supportive and understanding.  Nothing is better than people who encourage you to achieve your dreams.

I am dedicating the Thanksgiving Holiday to my family by not racing around to finish a post.  For you, the reader, I am showing my gratitude in a different way… a giveaway.  We will be sending someone a Today's Nest Holiday Pack just in time for the holidays. It includes products and finds from this years posts and treats from the soon to be released Savour Bakery and Gift.  The rules follow.

savour… gratitude

Get the rest after the jump…

Top Picks Giveaway

I am listing my top ten post picks for the year so far.  All you have to do is pick your favorite.  You can choose one of my picks or any of the posts here at Today’s Nest.  There are three ways to get your name entered for the drawing… 1) comment at the end of this post. 2) “Like” us on facebook and write on our wall with your favorite post. 3) Follow us on twitter and tweet your favorite post using #LoveLola hashtag in your message.  The contest ends on Friday, December 3 at Midnight CST.  The winner will be announced on Sunday, December 5.  Enter all three ways for three chances.

I had a very difficult time choosing my top picks for post, but I narrowed it down to 10.  Some were chosen because I enjoyed the project, some were chosen because they were tasty… and some I chose just for the pictures.  As a side note, you might be interested to know that the post with the most views is Coffee-The Perfect Cup.

Here they are in no particular order:
