Yep, it’s official. I’m officially tired of getting to this time of year and realizing that we are still agreeing that 2011, much like 2009 and 2010 (heck let’s throw 2008 in with the mix as well), will go down in history as one of the tougher years… The economy has continued to be hard on all of us in some way or another, and despite much anticipation of a recovery, we are smart enough to realize that we have a long, hard road in front of us.
That being said, I refuse to let a little “tough economy” make us lose sight of the bigger things in life. Let’s remember money can’t buy you happiness. With that being said, I am pleased to announce that this month will mark the 6th Annual Chicago Home Partner Pumpkin Carving Contest. The perfect reason to spend some time with special people in your life – friends, spouses, family, whomever – grab your favorites and carve up something amazing! (And YES, I know that the prize of a $50 American Express Gift Card is a nice incentive as well!)
The rules are quite simple… Carve up your best jack-o-lantern (or a member of your family), take a picture and submit it in one of the following three ways:
Email the picture to Amanda@chicagohomepartner.com
- Snail mail it to my address listed below.
- Or… if you’re in the neighborhood… drop it off at the address listed below.
All entries must be submitted by Sunday, October 30th. As entries are received, they will all be posted on my website, www.ChicagoHomePartner.com, as well as our Facebook fan page, www.facebook.com/ChicagoHomePartner for your viewing pleasure. No fine print!
And once again, stay strong… there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
