Birthday Giveaway #1 – Ciao Chessa!

September is kind of special to me because it is my birthday month, however I am not a huge birthday person because I don’t like celebrating getting older, my one fear in life is getting old. I can’t handle it. BUT that’s not to say that I like people to ignore it, I still like the people in my life to recognize that it is my birthday. I’m just a bit more low key about it. My husband is the best as I get to use the “it’s my birthday!” excuse all month, which means he does whatever I want (which now that I think about it is not much different than the other 11 months of the year. haha!) With that said, I want to celebrate my birthday month with you guys so, I will be hosting a giveaway every Monday for the rest of September!


We are going to start off the Monday giveaways with Ciao Chessa! As you may know, Monica is the photographer behind Ciao Chessa! and she is offering any print in her shop (excluding the limited editions) to the giveaway winner. Here are some prints of hers that I love.
