Soto Necklace Giveaway!!

I am hosting my very first giveaway to thank my loyal readers for coming back again and again.

I had always wanted to start a blog, and did actually start one a few different times. In January of 2009, right before conceiving our son, buying our home and getting married, I did. And I posted a whopping ONE blog post before I let it go. I couldn't find the motivation. I wish I kept it up that year, I wish I had an almost daily record of my life at that time. I would love to read back on my pregnancy, Carter's birth, and how I managed it all. I knew nothing about the blogging world back then, except I read a few blogs and really wanted to give it a try. Now that I'm finally in the swing of things, I absolutely love blogging. I've found another world of ideas, photos, life, love, and just overall inspiration on a daily basis. I started doing this to document my life, and I've met some really wonderful and kind people. I may not say the right thing all the time, or use the perfect grammar (I promise, I'm trying!), but it's my outlet, my blog. So now, I want to give back to you beautiful people!

So on to my giveaway! I had been making my own necklaces at this local bead store and getting a ton of compliments on them so my plan was to make a necklace and give it away to you, but when I tried to go to the bead store today, they were gone! I am one sad momma right now, but I'm not going to let that stand in my way from giving away a pretty necklace. So I bought this necklace from Soto (a local boutique) to giveaway to you!

This giveaway is for this purty necklace:

All you have to do to enter is:

Mandatory entry: 

Follow this blog with Google Friend Connect (Click "follow" in the ride sidebar) and then leave a comment letting me know you did!  Make sure to include your email address so I can contact you! 

To gain {two} additional entries, you can:

1. Tweet about the giveaway and include the link so others can enter 
(and include @MichelleLYork in your tweet so I can see it)

2. Vote for me on Top Mommy Blogs by clicking the link to the right

Make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry letting me know that you did.

And that's it!

I must tell you that I am not being compensated for this giveaway. I am paying for this myself because I want to thank my readers (and it's fun!). I am not associated with Soto. I reserve the right to disqualify any entry. If the winner does not respond to my email within 48 hours of notifying them, a new winner will be chosen. The winner will be chosen at random.

The giveaway will end Thursday, August 11th at 11:59pm and is open to U.S. residents only, sorry. The retail value of this item is $22.

Tell your friends please. :)

Feel free to email me with any questions. MYork28 at gmail dot com.
