(If you're here for the Milspouse Holiday Blog Swap, it's the post below this one- thanks for stopping by, and be sure to subscribe and enter the Christmas Giveaways while you're here!)

Today's giveaway- the last day of the Christmas Giveaway series!-comes from a sweet blogger who just got married days ago (congratulations!). Sue blogs at "Hello. Also, I Love You." Sue wrote me a very kind email after reading my blog, and I've been following her ever since.

I'll let her introduce herself to you:

Hi everyone, I'm Sue! I'm a very newly married Air Force wife. My husband and I are stationed in Japan & we love it here. The people are friendly, the scenery is gorgeous and the food is absolutely delicious. I love to blog because I love to write and this is my outlet for everything. I love learning new things & I constantly take classes to expand my knowledge. I don't know Japanese yet but I'm working on it! I love to read, I'm slightly addicted to Pinterest and I secretly love to game with my husband. For now we're just living every day, taking the good with the bad & remembering that love is what it's really all about. 

Since I love it here in Japan I thought I'd share a little piece of that with Erika's readers for Christmas. My giveaway is for a Japanese tea set, a Kokeshi doll and a traditional Japanese hair flower. These are my favorite things that I've found while living here in Japan so I want to pass their joy on to you!

I love this giveaway, because it's not things you can find at a local store! For all those girls who love something unique or full of culture, this is such a special giveaway. The winner receives all three items pictured: the beautiful tea set, Japanese hair flower, and the very cute Kokeshi doll!

There are so many places I want to visit but I can narrow it down a little :)
