Wordless Wednesday (1/18) - Grandparents

This photos are of my children and my Mom and Dad in California, whom we spent our time with when we were on vacation!

Building their first Gingerbread house with Grandma!

Dancing in the kitchen with Grandma and Papa (my dad)!

Ringling Bro. and Barium and Baily Tickets Giveaway! (4 winners) (Guest Post from Closer to Lucy) (Residents around Nashville, TN) Ends 1/24 (Rafflecopter)

Step right up! You will believe your eyes…

aerial acrobatics, human cannonballs, sword swallowing feats, what an exhilarating experience!

There is just something about the circus that keeps us all childlike…

I still remember school fieldtrips and attending with my mom and big sister. I can’t find it but I still have an old Polaroid of my sister and I getting to ride a circus's one of my most prized moments of childhood.

I can smell the air….it’s full of popcorn, hay, animals, and musk.

Ahhh, Good times………..vicarious nostalgia.

If you’re like me, the idea of the circus being in town instantly put a smile on your face.

Well Nashvillians…..go ahead and crack that grin because the circus is in town!

Not just any circus either. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey will roll out the greatest show on earth in Music City’s Bridgestone Arena Jan. 26-29.


If you don’t live in the Nashville area….don’t fret because they are coming to you soon and if you don’t have your tickets yet—What are you waiting for?

You need to seriously consider it.  It's not called the "Greatest Show on Earth" for nothing, after all!

Check out event locations, dates, times, and make plans now!

For those of you in the Nashville area I hope you’re excited because it gets better -- they’ve got a $12 kids ticket for the Friday 10:30am showing, just use the code KIDS12.  It’s available on all $15, $21 and $26 tickets – which is a pretty good deal.

Want a little bit more to get giddy with…how about a giveaway?

That’s right Closer to Lucy’s peeps will have a chance to win a total of 20 tickets! Thanks to the generosity of the peeps over at Ringling Bro. and Barium and Baily, I’ve got 4 sets of 4 passes to the greatest show on earth!

I received no prior compensation for this posting, I have been offered tickets to the event but have not decided if I will be attending. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally use and believe will be a good match for my readers. I am disclosing this in accordance with Closer to Lucy's legal disclosure and the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255 Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising. Thank you to Ringling Bro and Barnum and Bailey for supplying the Giveaway Prize. Prizes shipped by sponsor I hold no responsibility. This giveaway is not affiliated with Facebook in anyway.
