Well now that we’re more than ready to find a pool to dive into, random.org has picked a winner of this week’s giveaway. The lucky lady is… Cher (who swims about 20 laps each day in the summer). Congrats!

One element in our new kitchen that always makes us smile is the etsy print that we purchased by Samantha French. Remember, the cheery orange and blue painting of the lady swimming (that Clara also sweetly though included some “fishies”)? Well now Samantha is giving you guys a chance to win your very own colorful work of art with a $200 gift certificate to her Etsy shop. So grab your swim cap and bathing suit because that’s enough to snag any of the 16 x 20″ archival prints featuring Samantha’s signature subject matter.

      LET’S GO SWIMMING! I am not a great swimmer, which is a big factor in my choice to have the kids in year round swimming lessons.

  1. Ellie Busker says

    Me and water area great friends! I miss my good friend in the winter – bring on the warm weather!

  2. Rachel says


    My childhood summers were spent in the pool. I have not found such a good pool since.

  3. Brooke says


    I first started swim lessons when I was six months old and have loved the water ever since. Of course, I admit that my version of “swimming” these days often consists of a floatie and an adult beverage… But it’s still a great time!

  4. Joy says

    LET’S GO SWIMMING! I live in Florida so it’s pool weather from late February through November. Most of my pool time involves sunbathing by it instead of playing in it though.

  5. Kelly says

    LET’S GO SWIMMING! I’m a fish! I can’t wait until it’s warm enough to get to the lakes and ocean.

  6. Jamie says

    LET’S GO SWIMMING! When I was younger, I used to swim laps every week. Now, years later, I wish I still had that endurance!

  7. Emma says


    I love to swim in all sorts of water but am terrified of sharks, unseen creatures, dark secrets, algae, piranhas, cod, those spiky poisonous animals that look like troubled balls, anything that is slimy, and surfboards. Thus, I tend to splash in the shallow water within three feet of the shore!
