Meaning & Traditions {& 1k IG Follower Celebration GIVEAWAY}

Seriously. Just less than one week until Christmas Eve now? I'm still SO not ready! I wish I could just stop time for a little bit. But at the same time, I'm ready to start a new year. 

I missed my regularly scheduled Words for my Wednesday this week, because I had another awesome giveaway to share with you guys, so here we are on Friday already, and I'm posting Words for my Wednesday today. Better late than never, because I love the Christmas quotes that I have to share this year!

Christmas time always brings me back memories from my childhood. Does the holiday do the same for you? It's just one of those things that happens, I guess. And I think it's partly because of the strong traditions that have stuck with me throughout the years. Old traditions and new traditions seem to make the holiday just that much more special. Don't you think?



Today I'm also pretty excited about a little milestone on Instagram, because we've reached over 1,000 followers there this week! As far as social media goes, twitter and instagram are just my [slight] obsessions, really. The two that I will always (for the most part, anyway) check daily. Always. At least once.

Since I've been on Instagram a whole lot more lately, doing lots of fun microblogging (and even some photo challenges), I created a facebook group for IG enthusiasts like me. It's a place for daily sharing, community and support. Join me, if you like, and let's network. =0)

PLUS, I'm officially celebrating the milestone with a 1k IG Follower Celebration Giveaway here on the blog. Yes, I'm giving away a custom hand stamped dog tag keychain ($10 retail value) to one lucky winner, from #shopjustByou and 2justByou Blog. It's an appreciation giveaway, because I'm so grateful for all my blogging friends and readers. 

Here's a photo of our favorite recent custom orders:
