Where in the World Has The Book Bag Been? #Giveaway!

Remember this show?

I kind of feel like this is my life right now. I think in the last month, I have been away more than I've been home.

In late October, hubs and I had a planned trip to fly to Arizona to visit his sister and her family. Well, as we were on our way there, she lost her battle with cancer and it ended up being a different sort of trip for us. This woman was indeed a fighter and battled for almost 20 years. About 11 years ago, her brother, my husband, was able to give her a bone marrow transplant when she developed leukemia. They were an almost 100% match! That miracle gave her family many more years to love her.

Then two weeks ago, there was a memorial held for her in Colorado, where they had lived for many years. Since we are both retired and could take our time getting there and back, we decided to drive to CO. We spent several days there, visiting with family. My sister and her husband were also able to join us for a few days. It was so great to see everyone, even though it was a sad reason for all of us to get together.

Then we took off to take the long way home. We spent some more time in Colorado, then went on to Wyoming.

After that, we made it to The Black Hills just as a big snow storm was coming in. We hunkered down there for 4 days waiting for the mountain road to clear off so we could drive back down and head home.

We finally got home last night after being gone for almost two weeks. It was a fun trip but it is always so nice to get home Don't you agree?

So anyway, that is why posts have been few and far between here on The Book Bag. I have a few pre-scheduled posts that went up while I was gone but for the most part I had no access to internet, or I was busy enjoying my family and the sights around me. But I'm back now, ready to go again! I have several giveaways to draw winners for and I will get those names selected soon.

But for now, why not celebrate with a GIVEAWAY!!

I will gift the winner any Kindle book they want that is $5.99 or less.
