Today, September 28th, we are Giving Away Products from TWO Companies... (CLOSED)

Give Away #1: Pied Piper on Etsy is Giving Away A Print of the Winner's Choice

Whenever I think if Dr. Suess I am reminded of my husband's grandparents. That's right, his grandparents. Not a baby, or a toddler, or a young child, but my husband's eighty-year-old grandparents. They have been married for fifty-five years and they have one of the deepest and most loving relationships I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.

So why am I reminded of them each time I think of Dr. Seuss? This is why (my cousin-in-law wrote about it in her blog Simple Life Love):

One night she and her husband (who is my husband's cousin) read Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are, which had previously belonged to my husband's grandparents. At the front of the book, was the following inscription:

Is that not the cutest? Especially if you knew this sweet man and the love he has for his adoring wife.

The brilliant Dr. Suess has the ablility to put into words exactly how we are feeling. Such as:

Pied Piper on Etsy allows you to buy a variety of Dr. Suess' wonderful quotes in print form (to hang in most any room of your house). Pied Piper on Etsy is where the magic of life is captured in art form! Art press-prints, cards, and photographer resources that are unique and the envy of all!

Today Pied Piper on Etsy is offering a DISCOUNT to the readers of Give Away Today. Anyone who purchases one print/set of cards etc will get a second item for $5 off. To receive the DISCOUNT you will need to email the Pied Piper at info@piedpiperphoto.com.

Today Pied Piper on Etsy is giving away a press-print poster of the winner's choice. No matter where you reside, you can enter to win up to FOUR times today.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.

Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, visit Pied Piper on Etsy here. Look at all of their great posters and then return to to Give Away today and in a NEW comment, tell us your first and last name and the poster you would like if you are our winner.
Example: Jane Doe: Today You Are You Poster--I would love it for my daughters' room

For a third entry, become a Follower of Give Away Today on the right-hand sidebar. Once you follow, or if you are already a follower, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and “follower”.
Example: Jane Doe: Follower

For a fourth entry, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and a couple(s) you know whom you respect and admire.
Example: Jane Doe: I'd have to say my parents and my husband's parents. I feel blessed to have such good examples in my life.

The winner of the print from Pied Piper on Etsy will be announced Tuesday, September 29th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner.

P.S. We will be appearing on KJZZ's Morning Show tomorrow morning at 9:00 am in Utah. Therefore we will be giving away gobs of stuff tomorrow--be sure to visit us so you can enter to win!

Becky Jensen: I admire the love that my Grandpa has for his new wife Maybeth. They are both widowed but have found so much joy with each other in their twilight years, and they're downright lovey-dovey with each other--it's adorable! They're such a great example to me.

It is amazing to see to people that have enough love for one another to be around each other for 24 hours a day without getting sick of each other.

They are always doing things for each other and it is such a wonderful thing to be able to observe and learn from, so when me and my husband have been married that long, we will be that strong.
