Guess what??  The giveaway queen (thanks for the name Emily!) is back with another Sponsor Giveaway today!! 🙂  Today’s giveaway is brought to you by the lovely Lori from ChicGeek Designs.  When I first met Lori I was so excited to hear that she loved two of my favorite things, photography and traveling!  Right then and there, I knew we’d be great friends! 🙂  Lori’s shop is filled with beautiful cards and prints from photos she has taken or watercolors that she has painted all by herself!

1) Tell us a little about yourself.
I am an IT Geek during the day with a passion for travel and photography. My blog and my shop are my outlets from the everyday world. I enjoy Interior Design and am going back to school at night to try and obtain a diploma in Residential Planning so maybe someday I can run my own business.

2) What inspired you to start your shop?
I wanted to share my trips and travels with people. Before I started traveling, I would always look at pictures dreaming of when I could go and hang pictures of Italy on my wall inspired – knowing one day I would go. And then one day I did. So I wanted to share that experience with others.
3) It looks like you’ve traveled to a lot of places, where is your favorite travel spot and why?
That’s really hard to say because each place is unique to themselves. I love Los Cabos for the relaxation that it provided and listening to the ocean each night as I fell asleep. Italy was my dream trip and I love the history, architecture, countryside, etc that it provided that I will never see over here in the US. Germany was a whirlwind but one I wouldn’t pass up as the castles were breathtaking and the people were so nice. The contrast between modern and ancient was incredible. I could go on and on about each trip because they are so special to me. I think that’s why I love traveling so much. They each provide something different and unique.
4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Oh this is easy – Moose Tracks – peanut butter ice cream, with fudge swirls and mini reese cups! 😉
