Easy peasy! Just leave a comment below letting me know what your Memorial Day plans are- and if you are out of country (which I will gladly ship to) let me know of any fun plans you have coming up! I will be using Random.org to choose my winner and will be emailing them once the giveaway closes. Please be sure that I have an email address for you if you are an anonymous commenter!
