Hello Blog Friends, yesterday the Paper Canary turned one years old! What's a birthday without prezzies? So, in celebration of my blog's birthday, I will be holding a give away. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post and you will be in the draw to win a little piece of Aotearoa. Since my blog and I share a the same birthday month, I will be choosing a name out of a hat on my own birthday, February 18th. So don't forget to leave a comment and you may have a little package coming to you all the way from the bottom of the world. 


xo,


Joy

  3. Oh, I have been meaning to stop "lurking" and leave a comment, and now this is the perfect opportunity!
    I love following along with your life, and all your "happenings". Also, I do have to say, Princess Tilly is such a sweet little love bug, you must be enjoying her so much :)

  6. I have to look up Aotearoa and find out what it means, though it sounds as if it's a Maori name for NZ.....I'm also a reader of your Mom's blog and enjoying her happiness at visiting all of you.

  7. Oh, happy birthday, gorgeous daughter of Jodi! Hope you've been allowing her to spoil Miss Tilly in extravagant measure (and have been enjoying some mama love of your own). We'll all take good care of her when you send her back to us. I promise.

  8. Kristi - Good insight - Aotearoa the native Maori name they gave to the land when they arrived. It means "Land of the Long White Cloud" :) You're welcome to come and visit!

  13. Many happy returns of the day - to you and your blog!!! (And yay for blog giveaways!) Don't hobbits give away gifts on their birthdays? I think your mom told me that. Perhaps you are being influenced by visiting Hobbiton the other day :)

  14. Happy Birthday (to you AND your blog)! I am amazed and jealous when I read of others getting to travel around the world on their own little adventures. I live my own little adventure every day at home with my kiddos... but close my eyes and dream at night about what it would be like to be a world traveler!! Hope you have a great birthday on the other side of the world!!
