Two months in Mexico! (click here for more info)

Where does time go? I can't believe I've been in San Felipe two months already. It feels like I've been here just a couple of weeks, not a couple of months!

I've had a wonderful time here, relaxing, enjoying the nice, warm weather, and the beautiful beaches. I am teaching a couple of new online classes, so it's been nice to have uninterrupted time to get my work done.

And while surfing the web, I stumbled upon a new category of blogs for me. I usually read the travel blogs of my friends who are also having their own adventures while traveling the US. But now I have discovered there are tons of wonderful blogs out there about my other passion: food and cooking.

So I have recently spent quite a bit of time exploring and learning from these blogs. These bloggers are a united community who use their blogs to connect with others, and share not just recipes but also ideas and goals. They use their blogs to throw link parties, to do fundraising for some great causes, to keep each other informed, to make new friends, and stay in touch with old ones.

They also do giveaways on their blogs, sponsored by companies who select them. And I am very excited to share with you that I have been selected by CSN Stores to host my very own giveaway for my readers!

CSN will give one of my readers a gift certificate for $25 to spend on their website. CSN is not just one store, it is actually a collection of 200 stores, so you can find pretty much anything you need .... or want :-)

For example, CSN has a great office furniture store so if you need something for your home office (or your RV office) you could spend your $25 gift certificate there if you're the winner of this giveaway! Or you could spend it at any of their other stores, the choice is yours.

To enter, you must leave a comment for this post, telling me two things:

First, if you are a follower of my blog, please tell me how long you have been a follower. If you're not a follower, please become a follower today and mention in your comment that you did.

Second, try to guess the date and time that I will return to the states. I don't know yet when that will be, but when I do, I will look at the entries and the person whose guess is the closest to the actual date and time, will be the lucky winner of the $25 gift certificate!

(Hint: I have not decided when yet, but I can tell you that I will be going back to the states some time in March - next month! :-)

So leave me a comment - I love comments - and you could be the winner of my very first and exciting giveaway!

Now for the small print:
1. To leave a comment, click on "comments" below.
2. The gift certificate only covers merchandise, not shipping.
3. The contest is open to residents of both Canada and the US.
4. If you would like me to notify you if you're the winner, please leave your email address in your comment (if you're worried about spam, you may use the word "at" instead of the "@" in your email address, and the word "dot" instead of the period).
5. If you rather not include your email address in your comment, make sure to check back here frequently so you can read when I post who the winner is. If the winner doesn't reply by the stated deadline, the gift certificate will go to the next closest guess.
