lynn in love with staying at home, blogging, and GIVEAWAYS!

Hello friends!
So this is it... it's finally here. It's officially my last week of a glorious 4 month adventure as a stay at home wife. I've taken on a job working at the university hospital as a nocturnist (admitting patients to the hospital at night) and it all starts next week.

I will have to say that I will miss this life. After 11 years of education/training and finishing up with a intensive internal medicine residency, it was pretty amazing to take a breather these past few months. So many people have asked what I've been doing, if I was bored with this new lifestyle... and I have to say not even for ONE second. I certainly was not idle, but instead I filled my days focusing on doing things I never had time to do before and spending time with my loved ones. For the first time I was really able to focus on just me, and I enjoyed every moment. I loved having this little blog to document the good times and I thank all of you readers for having been there experiencing it with me.

Just a few things I've been doing the past 4 months:
*Travelling - I went to Vietam for a month with my family as seen here, here, and here
- I travelled with my husband (SF and Atlanta) as seen here, here, here.
*Spending time with my family and my little 3 year old nephew as seen here, here, here, here, and here
*Loving on my husband as seen here, here and here.
*Becoming a Grapestomping champion as seen here.
*Getting board certified in Internal Medicine as seen here.
*Cooking and baking as seen here, here, here, and here.
*Getting fit and exercising regularly
*Getting back to my love of photography as seen here, here, here, and here. (exciting news to come about this!)
*Going to church more regularly
*Being available for my friends and family when they were in need.

Dear friends and dear readers (according to my google analytics, I have had 2300 visits from 53 countries since August), I want to celebrate this time and to celebrate you with a little giveaway!

For a lucky commentor, I will be giving away a package of some of my favorite things from the last 4 months. It will include
*few prints/postcards from my trip to Vietnam
*this lovely apron from my bestie's etsy shop
*a vintage cupcake stand
*and a whole bunch of other lovely suprises that you'll just have to wait to see! :)
Trust me, it'll be good :)
