NaturaleChronicles Half Bday Giveaway

Happy [Half] Birthday to you. 
Happy [Half] Birthday to you. 
Happy [Half] Birthday, NaturaleChronicles.
Happy [Half] Birthday to youuuuuuu. 

Yes, the month of June marks NaturaleChronicles’ 6th month online. I started this blog on New Years day as an attempt to rid myself of the monotony of grown up life. It came at a time when I felt like I was losing myself, my joy, and my purpose. But in only 6 months, this wee little blog built up my spirit and granted me a renewed purpose.

This blog and you all helped me finish off my first year of teaching with a smile. So with sincere appreciation of the past and enduring optimism for the future, I thank you all!

To show my appreciation to you, my readers and online support system, as promised, I am hosting NaturaleChronicles’ very first GIVEAWAY!!! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Tatus Welle jewelry designs. All the pieces in the Tatus Welle collection are hand-made. I love Lorraine her jewelry and I wanted to share some of her pieces you.
