A shower of sunshine for you!

Little Lady has been alive for almost one whole year! She has showered my life with sweetness, filled our house with waves of wetness, and brought about an abundance of umbrella moments. To celebrate this special milestone we decided to do our very first "Ode To Umbrella Moments" give-away! In honour of our obsession with Gymboree we will be giving away a $40 (CDN Dollars) gift card for this spectacular store! You don't even need a blog to win! Here's what you need to know:

If you have a blog:
1) Write a post to go in Little Lady's birthday book. It doesn't need to be long...even a short saying about courage or innocence will suffice.
2) Include this picture button with a link to this post and a comment about the contest.
3) Come back here and leave a comment on this post saying you want to win! Be sure to include your blog address with the title of your post so I can find it!
4) Tell your friends!

If you do not have a blog:
1) Send me an e-mail at with a short saying, quip, quote or story about courage or innocence for Little Lady's birthday book.
2) Include you name and address so I can send you your stuff if you win!
3) Leave a comment on this post saying you want to win!
4) Tell your friends!

Rules and Regulations:
-We will draw for the winner on Thursday, August 30th. Winner will be announced that day on this blog. You will also be notified on your blog or by e-mail if you win.
-This contest is open to citizens of the US and Canada only.

Hope the sun shines on you! Good luck!

I'm excited about this contest - love Gymboree!
I put a post on my blog today - it is titled Ode To Umbrella Moments Gymboree Contest. I couldn't get the button to work - it would just link to the image, though I do have a link to your site on there. Let me know the HTML and I will put it on as well.
