Did You Know That Wednesday and another GIVEAWAY!!!
Did you know that pepper is a flowering vine, cultivated for its fruit, which is usually dried and used as a spice and seasoning?
The fruit, known as a peppercorn when dried, is approximately 5 millimetres (0.20 in) in diameter, dark red when fully mature, andcontains a single seed. Peppercorns, and the powdered pepper derived from grinding them, may be described simply as pepper, or more precisely as black pepper, white pepper, or green pepper. Green peppercorns are also simply the immature black peppercorns.
Black pepper is native to India, and is extensively cultivated there.
Dried ground pepper has been used since antiquity for both its flavor and as a medicine. It is one of the most common spices added to European cuisine and its descendants. The spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine.
Now, the really fun stuff!
Our little one is 2 1/2 months old. Can you believe how time has flown??? She is now 7 lbs 8 oz and 20.5 inches! CRAZINESS! We just pretty much adore her! She is seriously so so fun. She has turned into such a happy little doll and coos and smiles allllll the time.
I finally sent out her birth announcements and I think they turned out oh so cute! Rachel designed it and was so so easy to work with. I am usually AWFUL about sending out cards etc, but it’s so easy with her. You just pick which one you like or have her design a custom holiday card, send a picture for her to use and she goes to work. Then she emails you the finished product that you can print as many as you want at your favorite printer (I like Artscow.com. They are so cheap and always have awesome deals and LOTS of free stuff) It made me think that I may actually get a Christmas Card out this year. WOOT WOOT!
After everything went so smoothly I knew I wanted to do a giveaway for all of you!!!
I asked Rachel, of Digital Greetings to tell me about herself so that I could do a giveaway and she sent me a little blurb about herself…
