BLOGTOBERFEST - Day 3 - Love Fridays

One of the reasons that I Love Fridays is because I get to spend quality time with my partner in crime, Ms L. I love knowing that we have the whole weekend ahead of us without the pressures of every day living. The dishes don't have to be done, early nights aren't as critical and there's generally a more relaxed approach to things. When you take away those daily priorities and pressures there seems to be more space for laughter, talking, connecting and being truly present in each other's life. You know, the stuff that really matters. Ms L and I have had a pretty complex and sometimes tough past year so I'm particularly grateful for the good times and the spaces in between the busy-ness.

Generally I'm just grateful for Ms L. She's funny, creative, smart, kind and thoughtful. When I first started blogging and noone visited my blog she used to leave me anonymous messages so I didn't feel like I was talking to noone. Isn't that the nicest thing?

Seeing as we're talking about Ms L I should also tell you that she's quite opinionated. Even about my blogging. I keep telling her that she should start a blog of her own as I know lots of people would love to read it. However, she seems far more contented telling me what I should be doing with mine. The only thing for it was to make her my editor-in-chief. It spares me from all those embarrassing and lazy spelling errors and the like too.

Lucky for you Ms L has a very strong opinion that a festival should have lots of giveaways. She considers it only appropriate that there be at least one per week to coincide with Love Fridays. So, that is how it's going to have to be. You can't argue with your editor can you? Seeing as we already have a giveaway happening, today I'm just going to remind you to sign up if you haven't already. But from here on in there will be a giveaway announced every Friday.

Feel free to join the Love Fridays fun as well. You can grab the code here if you want a button for your blog. As always, feel free to participate in any way that suits you. You know, obligation free is the only way for me!
