Normally, I don’t like to announce my birthday and I’m probably one of the few people that don’t get many greetings on Facebook! However, this year I’d like to celebrate it with a birthday giveaway and give back to those who have helped Art of Being a Mom grow.

I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity to do something I love, blogging, events and meeting new people. Turning 36 (oh my!) this year, I seriously feel older but nonetheless wiser. Birthdays always have a way of getting me even just the tiniest bit. Most years it seems to be an ordinary day and the most important thing for me is spending it with those I love.
The one word to describe what I’m feeling as I hit 36 is that I’m grateful. Grateful for my good fortune to be a work at home mom, grateful to be able to provide, grateful that the kids are healthy, grateful that I have been able to experience new places, food and activities and to be able to do it with family and friends. Definitely, blogging has been a part of that.
How else, would I get to take a trip to Vigan, be featured in a magazine, be on TV, experience a staycation, eat various cuisines and so much more? So this is my way of thanking you for your continued support, your taking time to read my ramblings, and being there whether I write about books I’ve read or places I’ve visited.
Special thanks to my co-admins, Lanie & Joy at Mommy Bloggers Philippines where I not only found friendship but have also gotten so many opportunities as well.
This will just be the first of a few giveaways I have planned. For this giveaway I’d like to share some items I received from related events. There’ll be one winner for all these items. Thanks for joining my birthday giveaway and good luck!
Stay tuned for the next birthday giveaway!
