Swing into Spring: CSN Stores Giveaway (Closed)

So, how did you like "All About Love" month here at my blog?  I've enjoyed it, and I hope you have, too!  I can't think of a better way to bring it to a close than with a super giveaway.  After all, if no one read my blog, I'd just be talking to myself.  Thanks for being here!

Since many of us are looking at snow and ice, let's talk about warm weather!

This picture reminded me of my own childhood.  We had a swing set in the backyard, and would perform death-defying stunts.  I was sure that it was possible to swing high enough to go right over that top bar.  We never managed to do that, but we did swing high enough to rock the entire swing set.  We'd also swing as high as we could, then jump off from the highest point.  It's no wonder that my parents have gray hair!

That's one of my summer memories.  What's yours?  Share it for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to CSN Stores.  Keep reading for more details.
