Everybody get their Christmas shopping done this weekend??
Eh, me neither. Give me a few more weeks and I’ll get there. Mostly. Hopefully.
But in the mean time, I want to say thanks. Thanks for reading, thanks for coming here, thanks for sharing things that resonate with you. I know Thanksgiving was last week so I don’t have to be thankful for anything until next November, but I just wanted you to know I appreciate you.
So as a thank-you, I’m kicking off December with the 12 days of Trusty Chucks Christmas. You don’t have to share anything, go like a page, or send me your firstborn child (although, I’m thinking about adding mine to the giveaway…), all you have to do is do what you always do and I’ll share a giveaway wherever you’re at. So if you follow me on Twitter, I’ll be giving some stuff away there during the twelve days. If you subscribe by email, I’ll have a few special giveaways for you. If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll show you some love too.
This isn’t a ploy for more followers or readers, I just want to thank those I already have so I’m giving away some of my favorite things like books, DVDs, chocolate, running supplies, chocolate, Starbucks, music, and more. Also, chocolate.
I just want to send some of you presents for Christmas and this is the best I could come up with because Chris wouldn’t let me cash in our retirement account. Sorry guys, I tried. There are no sponsors involved or super-secret advertising, I just want to share some of the things I write about all the time as a thank-you for being a part of this community.
So here’s the first giveaway: one of my favorite books to teach and some delicious chocolate. If you haven’t read The Giver, you need to immediately. It’s a pretty easy read, but the topics are tough to wrestle through and the conversations that we have in class about this book always teach me something new. The movie came out this year, but I haven’t seen it yet. I’m a little afraid to, truthfully. Sometimes the movie just isn’t worth it.
Comment below with whatever you want to write and I’ll choose a winner later tonight. Good luck and thanks for reading!
