Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fantastic week. Can you believe there are only TWO WEEKS left until Christmas?!! Seriously….where has this year gone?

Earlier this week I shared about project that I’ve been working on for what seems like forever–my new book Living Well Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Lifeand I have been so incredibly touched by your comments, emails, and messages of encouragement. It is pretty nerve-wracking to put your heart out there for everyone to see, but so many of you have reminded me that God’s got this, and for that, and for your prayers, I am so very grateful!

We have some pretty cool things planned for the upcoming book launch, including an AWESOME essay contest in which the winner will receive–wait for it–an all-expenses paid one week cruise for 4 onboard the Carnival Sunshine!  You can check out the details about the essay contest HERE, or check out our blogger resource page HERE.
