a gift


i just wanted to take a second to let you know how much i appreciate you (yeah, YOU). i've been at this blogging thing for almost a year now and have had such a great experience, which is largely due to my wonderful readers that support and encourage me. 

as a token of my appreciation, and because i just kinda feel like it, i'm giving one of you ladies this lovely essie nail polish. if you've been here before, it's no secret that i kinda love essie. so, i thought i'd share the love a bit.

if you're diggin' this polish as much as i am, leave a comment below with your e-mail address and i'll randomly pick someone tomorrow morning.

oh, and thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
