Fab Freebie: City Love

***This giveaway is now closed – see who won below!***

This week’s TWO lucky winners are… Maria G (who loves Kansas City despite being under 12-15″ of snow at the moment) and Fiona (who loves her hometown of Washington DC so much she even loves the traffic). Congrats you two!

Today marks the seven year anniversary of our move to Richmond, VA. Woo hoo! It’s crazy to think that it has been that long, and to celebrate this week’s giveaway is from a city-minded artist: Kimberly of Albie Designs. We’ve had her charming illustration of New York City hanging in our hallway o’ frames for as long as there has been a frame collection there (my sister bought it for Sherry for her birthday a few years back). And now Kimberly has released a Richmond city print. So whether you want her new RVA work of art, or others from around the country (and even the globe) you’ll get your pick thanks to the $100 gift card that she’s offering up to two lucky winners.

    I’ve lived in Norman, just a bit south of OKC, for six years, and my husband has lived here his whole life. We just bought a house and are expecting our first child, and we can’t think of a place we’d rather raise a family than my husband’s hometown and my adopted home.

  2. Megan says

    I love St. Paul! I lived there for 2 years after college with my husband right after we were married. It’s a city that has great memories and great friends.

  3. Kirsten Wolfe says

    I LOVE PORTLAND! My husband and I both grew up there & met there. We’ve since moved away for work, but we always intend to return to Oregon.

    I LOVE INDIAN SPRINGS VILLAGE, AL! No, no one knows where it is but it is where we have lived the last 26 years and counting. Just a tiny village south of Birmingham but it borders a state park so we have all kinds of wildlife around as well as lots of trees and flowers. It is our oasis near a big city and each day we can’t wait to get home.

  5. SMB says

    I love Seattle! She is moody and mysterious and I could live here the rest of my life and never discover all of her secrets. Oh, and also, the PNW is quite simply the most beautiful place I’ve ever lived!

  6. Taylor C. says

    I LOVE SAN DIEGO! It’s my favorite place. Great weather, nice people, beautiful landscapes. A close second place goes to Cedar Rapids, IA. I’ve lived in Cedar Rapids for the last 7 years and have grown quite attached to it.

  7. Lindsey says

    I love NYC…my husband and I visited a few years ago and I fell in love. Its the complete opposite of where I live now!
