I have been wanting and wanting to do this.
And finally, I have all my ducks in a row.
Well, it is really for YOU.
First off, I have a GIVEAWAY to hold. My 1st giveaway was so much fun and I am even more excited about this one!
When we visited my family back in June, we had such a wonderful time. We did fantastic things and made super special memories, this being one of them. The ferris wheel on Navy Pier. Now, some of us in this family are not afraid of heights. But others, well, let's face it, are not fans of the matter. So when we walked along the great Navy Pier in Chicago and the huge ferris wheel encompassed the skyline, my oldest son (6yrs.) swooned with amazement and the first thing out of his mouth was "I wanna go on that!" So, naturally, we bought the 2 tickets, headed toward the line, and I smiled sheepishly at my husband as I handed him the tickets and let him go on in line with Drew. Naturally. Because, after all, I needed to watch the baby. And Jack. And keep my sister and mom company. And, after all, John is the rock climber. You know, those huge sky scraping rocks. I like to keep my feet planted.
So, thus, came the birth of a great photo op. I watched them soar into the air and lost track of them about half way up the 150 foot wheel. And, later there was a chosen picture + my husband's knack at photoshop and illustrator + my constant idea-ing which resulted in this postcard:

And, that brings us round to the giveaway. This time, I want to hear your scary or non-scary (but probably scary to me) height story, whether or not you mind heights, what the highest thing you've been on this summer, etc. Just leave it in the comment section and you enter to win
5 of these postcards
(+ 5 postcard stamps).
It doesn't have to be eloquent or completely award winning. But I bet my boys will get a kick out of them.
