Awesome Life Friday #21 (and a Giveaway!)

It's Awesome Life Friday time!  We can't wait to have you join the party and share your blog posts with us!

Before we begin, we have some exciting news - a few weeks ago, Daniel did a review of Button-Up-a-Month, a subscription service that sends out one button-up shirt a month to its members.  We offered a great giveaway then, and we get to do it again - just in time for Father's Day!  Once again, FIVE winners in the US will be receiving a three month membership to Button Up a Month, so check out the review and then enter to win!



To enter the giveaway, leave a comment in this entry as instructed by the Rafflecopter, then leave the name you commented under and your email in the box in the Rafflecopter entry. (This allows us to contact you if you win!)  This will open up additional optional entries to increase your odds of winning.


This giveaway is open to US RESIDENTS ONLY
and will end just before midnight ET on 6/11/15. 

The winner will be notified by email within 24 hours after the end of the giveaway.  In order to claim the giveaway prize, the winner will need to respond within 24 hours of notification, or an alternate winner will be selected.

Good luck everyone!
