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!
