500th Post Giveaway!

I am just back from the beach. A full week of sun, fun, turkey dinner, beach time and limited computer usage. Glorious~

Thanksgiving Day which also was Mike's 37th birthday.
This post marks a milestone for this little blog ~ #500. I remember sitting down over 5 years ago to write my first blog post. Canaan was 3 years old and Ezra was 4 months old. We lived in an 80 year old rented duplex that was blazing hot in the summer and frigid cold in the winter. Alot has changed in 5 years, yet much remains the same. I love the opportunity blogging has given me and continues to give me to record the events of our lives here at The Smith Homestead. Thanks for coming along on the ride with me~

Cradle Will Rock, one of our sponsors, is helping me celebrate this milestone by offering an amazing giveaway this week.

 One lucky reader will win this gorgeous girls pillowcase dress~
(any size newborn-7 years)
This dress is super versatile and can be worn as a dress or a top.
Perfect for all seasons layered with a long-sleeved shirt and leggings
so your little girl will be able to wear it for seasons to come.

You can enter up to 3 times to win. Here's how:
