A Birthday and My Favorite Things

It’s a cozy, sleepy Saturday afternoon. There’s a massive pear crisp bubbling away in the oven and perfuming the house with smells of cinnamon and cardamom.

I’ve got a few minutes to myself before birthday party prep gets underway and I wanted to point you in the direction of my birthday festivities over on Simple Bites.

What started out as a list of current favorite things, scratched onto a notebook on my bedside table, turned into a full-fledged mega-giveaway.

Yes, in celebration of my birthday, I’ve listed my absolute favorite things (products, mind you, not like, people or places) and then proceed to give most of them away in what has quickly become my most popular giveaway, ever.

So if you like Le Creuset, stylish knives, fine chocolate, world class spices, natural beauty products or loose-leaf tea, head over to My Favorite Things giveaway on Simple Bites and leave a comment.

That’s it!

Giveaway ends Monday at midnight. Good luck to all!
