    Happy [almost] New Year! | Giveaway

    Dec 28, 2011 Business Giveaway
    Hi friends! I hope everyone had some quality time with family and friends as we near the end of 2011. I love celebrating on New Year's Eve! It is the perfect time to reflect on the year...it reminds us of all we have to be thankful for,  it shows us all what we are capable of and how much we have grown in just one year. New Year's Eve also gives us the opportunity to think of what we want to accomplish, how we want to continue to grow, who we want to reconnect with or maybe continue to connect with in the new year. The New Year gives each of a fresh start to show ourselves, our families and even the world what we each are capable of. This year I wrote a list of 3 words that I will strive to live up to everyday. One of the words on my list that I want to share with you is :: CHALLENGE. I know I can challenge myself everyday in different ways - both personally and professionally. I will challenge myself to be a better wife, sister and daughter. I will challenge myself to step outside of my comfort zone. I will challenge myself to push boundaries on creativity. I will challenge myself to continue to surround myself with positive people. In honor of the upcoming New Year I wanted to giveaway a few pretty awesome prizes! 1. $50.00 gift card to Anthropology 2. $25.00 gift card to itunes 3. $15.00 gift card to Starbucks How to enter :: *Must do all three for a complete entry* 1. Leave a comment below with ONE word that you want to strive to live out over the course of 2012 2. Become a fan of Cyn Kain Photography on Facebook (Follow me HERE on twitter if you have an account) 3. Share this give away link on your facebook page and be sure to TAG "Cyn Kain Photography" (** Tag CKP, not me personally :) **) Winners will be chosen at random on Monday January 2nd! Have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!!
