giveaway ♥ 'a year in yes' 2011 calendar

93 comments
Can you believe that 2010 is coming to an end already? Me neither! A new year is fast approaching, time for new resolutions (whether you'll end up keeping them or not!), a fresh new start, and of course a fun new calendar. The always inspiring Sarah Von from the blog Yes and Yes has come up with this brilliant 2011 'A Year in Yes' calendar, containing "12 months of fun ideas, lists, non-nauseating quotes and great photos". Each month has a fun list to fill in, and there's also a 'Things I Loved This Month' space - so you can keep a mini-diary of all the good things that will happen throughout the year (2011 will have many Much Love Mondays, I just know it!). It's locally printed on recycled paper, and will look fabulous on your wall.

For your chance to win one of these calendars, leave a comment here telling us what your favourite month is, and why.
For an extra entry, leave another comment if you follow the blog Yes and Yes. Make sure you leave your email or a way for me to find it.

Open to readers worldwide, until Wednesday (17 November). Good luck!

P.S. the winner of the (into) the fray giveaway is #21: suswins.

Any month with an r in it, cosmthey say they are the best months to go yabbying. It was one of the things I loved doing as a child and now the dams are full in the country again I want to go give it a try again with the kids.

Cat said...

I love this giveaway Anna. My favourite month is September - the beginning of spring, our wedding anniversary and the Bebito's birthday. x

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

It's hard to pick a favourite really. Perhaps September, because the spring bulbs are flowering in my garden, the weather is usually warmer and my oldest was born in September. :)

Anne said...

September is my favourite... sunny days while autumn is in the air yet!

Hind&Hare said...

My favorite month is March because it is my birthday and it is the beginning of spring !

stripeymonkey :) said...

what a gorgeous calender.. thanks for doing such a fab give-away

so hard to choose just one month - i love something about every season, hot sun, cold winds, spring flowers - they all make you feel good inside but i think (and maybe this is because its coming up fast!) it has to be december... the excitement of my two girls at christmas time, especially if it snows! just can't be beaten... magical :)

darchocoffee said...

i love december simply because it's christmastime and holiday time altogether.
it's also the month of re-evaluating ourselves of what we've done, be thankful for what we've got, and getting ourselves ready for the new year! :)

My favorutie month is November. That is because it is my birthday in this month and the autumn is in it fullest. It's so pretty outside then with the colours on the trees and such. Also we get the first snow then and the sunsets are so pretty. And the moon. That's why I like it :)

February - it's the best month for summer weather in Cape Town, everyone's back after their January holidays (and financially recovered) and there's a whole year of possibilities ahead of you. It's such a cocktails-with-a-dose-of-hope-in-the-sun vibe :)

curious constellation said...

I think March is my favourite month, not only 'cause it's my birthday but it's also my dad & brothers. It's also almost the end of the first term which never has any exams (:

How great! My favorite month is September. That's the month of not only my birthday, but my awesome mom's birthday. It's when the leaves begin to turn and school always started in September when I was a kid... it always feels like a new beginning to me.

BARGAIN BEX said...

i love me some november because it's the time for my most favorite of things:

1. layers upon layers of comfy-cozy sweaters, socks and boots.

2. starbucks' caramel apple cider drink (tastes just like liquid caramel apple-y goodness)

3. Thanksgiving = an entire day with nothing but food, friends, family ... and pumpkin pie.

These calendars are pretty much the greatest idea, ever. My favorite month is November. Cold weather, orange foods, the start of hot chocolate season, Home Alone on TV - I love it all!

My name may be April, but I think my favorite month is October. I love Halloween and fall!

Sandy O. said...

My favourite month of the year is September. The weather is still nice but already changing. The colors of the leafs, the orange sunsets, the gentle breaze. It's lovely!

Cute idea for a calendar - I love their marketing blurb. I'm so tired of cats and boobs.

My fave month is September. Spring is coming and everywhere is alive with scent and promise. x

Kristie Lynne said...

I need one of these so bad. I have 2010's and I'm in love.

I just can't get enough of October. The fall is the best. It's cardigan weather, scarf weather. It's all about apple picking and hot chocolate. It's just the best.

My favorite month of the year is November because that's when David gets to come to Buenos Aires to visit me (because of the Thanksgiving holidays). Sadly, we won't see each other this time because we're close to getting my visa and I'll move in no time (that is is everyting goes well with my fiancée visa!).

Ariel said...

This is just what I needed to kick off my new year!

In Cali, where we can't see the weather changes, we Californians have to pretend that it's fall, summer, spring and winter.

December is my favorite month, not because of the snow or the absolute serenity of the scene. No, I never had a snow day, and I never tasted a snowflake.

December is my favorite month because I have come to associate this time of the year with happiness and... Christmas music. The whole month, they are playing Christmas music, and it brings a smile to my face. You can't help but sing along! I associate this time of the year with shopping. I associate this time of the year with family, and how we have to wait until everyone is around the Christmas tree to open the presents. The kids are anxious (aka me) but we all take turns opening presents so we all appreciate the gift of the moment.

I associate this time of the year with freedom from school, and hanging out with friends. No worries, no essays. Pure Bliss.

December is about many things.

It never fails me.

September is a lovely month, there are days where it still feels warm enough to feel like you are in the middle of summer and at night I love how there is the barest hint of autumn in the air.
