Glantzing ahead...

Stop rolling your eyes-- I haven't used the pun in a really long time!

Fun & exciting things are coming your way, so I thought I'd take a minute to give you a sneak peek.

*September 4–6, my bloggy friend Sara is hosting a blog hop, inspired by Operation Nice. I'll be a stop along the tour, and your blog can be, too. Just click the button below for details. Several participating blogs will be giving away blog candy, so be sure to check back next weekend to do a little hopping.

*September 8 will be my first blogoversary. (singing)Happy blogoversary, happy blogoversary...To celebrate and say thanks to those of you who put up with all my puns, I'll be giving away a few gifts. Winners will be drawn on September 15, so you'll have a whole week to rack up entries (details will be posted on 9/8).

In case you need your appetite whetted... someone will receive a gift from one of my favorite Etsy shops.

And of course, there will be a scrapbooking gift among others.

*And last, but perhaps most excitedly (for me, at least), is that I will be blogging from overseas starting September 5. I'm saying goodbye to Hubby, Mimi, and my job for a while to visit my dad in Portugal and finally step foot into Spain (which has been a dream of mine for the past 15 years). I've bought every adapter and converter known to man (more to be said about that later) so that I can share my travel adventures with you.

(Daddy, do you mind if I swipe one of your photos? Thanks!)

So if I'm off the grid for a little while, you can see that I have a lot to prepare for! Talk to you next weekend if not before. J
