It’s been a ride, hasn’t it?  Two years ago today I posted my very first blog post.  It was a day that I pretty much was ‘cleaning house’ on other sites I had been posting at prior, when the bug bit me and I decided to continue posting just for fun.  I’ll admit there were times when I felt like throwing in the towel and just abandoning my blog, but you, my wonderful readers – some who have become dear friends – have kept me going through the rough spots.  Life got in the way recently with some unbloggables, but you have been there as I regain my footing in the blogosphere.  I thank you.

And to show you how much I thank you, I’m having another , similar to the one I had last year.  Only the date snuck up on me and I’m not as prepared as I was last year, so bear with me as I wing it.  The Prize Pack for the winner will include:

Princess Nagger Black Cherry Pinot Noir:  An off-dry ruby red wine that presents succulent flavor of fresh ripe black cherries balanced by a subtle touch of tannins. Light and fruity, this thirst quencher is a great addition to any summer festivity.  Pair it with Cajun cuisine, sweet Barbeque, shellfish, or berry-based desserts.  It’s a perfect accompaniment to Brie, Blue Cheese or Mild Cheddar.   6% Alcohol By Volume.   Contains Sulfites.

In addition to that will be:

Princess Nagger Apple Cranberry Wine:  A perfect blend of Gala and Honey Crisp apples that makes this wine sweet with a hint of lovely spice, with just the right amount of beautiful Cranberries to make a delightful, crisp wine.  Suggest serve chilled, or try it warmed and serve in a mug on a cool evening!   8% Alcohol By Volume.  Contains Sulfites.  This was a very limited edition batch – only producing 15 bottles.  The bottle for this giveaway is the very last bottle!

I haven’t decided what else will be in the gift basket yet, but it will of course be ‘wine themed’.  You won’t be disappointed.

And of course, in following with tradition from last year, those bloggy friends that don’t drink will still be able to enter – I’ll be choosing a “Wino Winner” and a “Non-Wino Winner”.  So that means TWO winners for this giveaway!  The Non-Wino Winner will receive a gift basket equal to the Wino Winner gift basket – just no wine will be involved.  You Non-Wino’s won’t be disappointed, either!

And to my awesome Canadian Friends? You are SO allowed to win one (or both) of these prizes – I can’t leave you out, because you’ve all been so good to me, too!  I’ll just have to figure out how to get the wine across the border to my Wino friends.

OK, here are the ‘official rules’:

Required Entry:

(must be completed before any extra entries are valid) Leave a comment designating “Wino” or “Non-Wino” so I know which gift basket to add your name to the drawing.

If your email address is not visible in your profile, you must include it in your comments (or send it to me in an email if you don’t want to publicly display it).

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.
