Of Birthdays and Giveaways

birthday roadtrip

I just celebrated my birthday a couple of days ago. 🙂  In our usual fashion Hubby and I decided to celebrate on the road, only this time, not too far away from home (in Tanay, Rizal, to be exact, to see a very very very old church). While sitting on the passenger side of our tiny yellow jeep called John Lemon, munching on a double cheeseburger and fries and listening to his road trip mix  (mostly by Dylan and some obscure Irish band), I realized what a lucky bitch person I am. To have been given another year of awesomeness is truly a blessing.

This is me, according to JesCom’s gifted graphic artist, Mark. 🙂

So to share my blessings, I’m holding a Birthday Giveaway! (Please forgive the segue haha)  For this, I’ve partnered with Zinio, one of  the leading online newsstands in the world.  I’m so excited because up for grabs are 9 subscriptions to any of the more than 5,000 digital magazines offered on their website!  Isn’t that just wonderful?
