September Giveaway

I've edited this post to put it on top. More recent posts below!
This giveaway closes TODAY!!!

This is going to be the first of my monthly giveaways.

In case you are new to my blog - welcome! I'm called Mayogi on my blog (which is short for Mama Yogi , because I'm a mama and I love yoga. *lol*). I'm a Spanish woman, born and bred in Sweden and living in a small town in northern Morocco, just by the Mediterranean Sea. I have 2 wonderful sons, aged 8 and 10, and a husband who works in Sweden.

So, I've decided to host a giveaway. The prize this month is a cute red shoeshaped key ring and a leather purse.

The reason why I'm hosting this giveaway is because the kids are going back to school this week and I think that's something to celebrate. Mind you, I love my kids and I love spending time with them but after 2½ months we all need a time out from each other. The kids are excited too! They really like going to school. After 10 weeks without routines we all need to go back to our schedules, with bed time stories, lunch and dinner every day (instead of brunch and snacks) and a tidy house. When I was a kid I loved going to school and I loved learning new things. So do my kids. We always celebrate the beginning of the school year in some way, like having something special for dinner or a "movie night" at home. And this year I want to celebrate the new year with you too.

How do you participate? It's easy. Just leave one comment (duplicated comments will be erased) here and make sure there's a way I can contact you if you're the lucky winner (email addy or blog). Contestants from all over the world are welcome. On September 17 (next Monday) around 9 PM GMT I will count the comments and draw a random number. I will then announce the winner here on my blog and contact her (or him).

Any questions? I’ll add extra stuff here as we go - in case questions come up. So check back from time to time.
