Day 1 – Starting over in the State of Alabama

Very exciting things are happening in Alabama. You all know how much I love the fact that I am a southern lady.  Well, during the month of October I get to participate in two very exciting things.

  1. I will be participating in a blog “linky party,” called 31 Days, sponsored by The Nester.  It’s a challenge to bloggers to write on one topic for 31 days.  My topic is…31 Days of Starting Overwith a southern twist.
  2. I will be proclaiming my love for the state of Alabama with a giveaway for you! In the lovely city of Homewood, AL, there lives a merchant called Alabama Goods where every item sold is hand-crafted by Alabama residents.  If you’ve never been in the store, it’s high time you checked them out. In the meantime, take a look at my slide show below.



And here is the grand prize for October – two very popular items in their store.  A cutting board crafted by Jim Priest out of Wetumpka, AL, made out of Alabama woods such as maple, oak and various other home-grown trees. And a dish towel hand-sewn by Deborah Elliott from Birmingham, made out of flour sackcloth with a fall applique.  What fun in your kitchen!

Free to a lucky Cozinest subscriber and shopper of Alabama Goods.

So, today I am starting over with a whole new topic, new giveaway, new friends in the blog world and in the great state of Alabama.  What have you recently started over?  New life as an empty-nester? Newlywed? Single mom? New homeowner?  New weight loss plan? Let’s explore these together during the month of October.  I can’t wait to hear from you!

    Neat store. So many changes in my life. I might be too old to start over, just hope I can start up.

    Starting over, clean slate, sounds like a fabulous idea. I was not thinking about starting anything over, I read your blog, yes it is time to change my mind set so I can make the BEST choices for a best me. So today I will start over with my diet and exercising. No more little changes, I am going cold turkey, taking certain foods out of my diet! Thanks for giving me that I opener I needed.

    Saw a new doctor to help with hormones which in turn will help with my weight loss. Good luck Kim.
