Third Blogiversary {A Giveaway}

Greetings, readers!

I'm officially back from my May hiatus! (Yes, I was supposed to post last week and forgot. xD) If you'd like to hear about my May trip, I'd suggest keeping an eye on my other blog next week.



And speaking of blogs... This weekend marks three years since I joined the blogosphere! Blogging has definitely been a journey for me, and one that I have very much enjoyed. I'm not sure where life will take me in the coming years, but for now I'm sticking with blogging as a hobby. Stories by Firefly is my writer/author platform, and Chosen Vessels is my little spot to share my thoughts and my faith.

A blog wouldn't be nearly so much fun without all of my lovely followers. As much as I would love to give something special to each and every one of you, it's just not a feasible plan. So I'm doing the next best thing—a giveaway with two winners!



First Place will receive this darling leather journal. The front has a quote from 1 Corinthians 13, and the inside pages have a variety of encouraging quotes along the bottom. This winner will also receive two gel pens. 


Second Place will receive two books from my shelves—Jilted by Varina Denman & The Stout-Hearted Seven by Neta Lohnes Frazier—as well as a few bookmarks from my collection. (I have not read either of these books, and therefore cannot recommend them or offer content warnings.) 


a Rafflecopter giveaway

Sorry, international friends! These prizes are US only due to shipping costs. :( However, if someone who is not a resident of the US wins one of these, I will offer them e-copies of either of my books, and the prize will go to whoever would have been 3rd place.

Best of luck! <3
