3 time's a charm!

There are many things in life that come in three.

The Holy Trinity; Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

Birth, Life, Death.

Body, Mind, Soul. 

Past, Present, Future

Land, Sea, Sky.

Lithosphere, Atmosphere, Hydrosphere.

Our daily meals; Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Three primary colors.

In baseball; 3 strikes and you're out.

And who hasn't heard this?: "Okay ready? On three... 1, 2, 3"

But then also in books, there's the "Three Little Piggies", "Goldilocks and the Three Bears", "The Trilogy of Lord of the Rings",  "The Three Musketeers"... just to name a few.

When it comes to movies or TV, there's; "The Three Stooges", "Three's Company", "The Three Amigos". Also if you decide to call upon the "crazy ghost" of Beetlejuice all you need to do is call his name 3 times.

All in Three... Because three is the "magic number".

But today, 3 means a celebrating of my blog being around for 3 Years in a row!!!

Happy Birthday "Such Life in the Tropics"
It's been some interesting 3 years, some days are filled with inspiration, others not so much. Have met some wonderful people with amazing ideas and willing to share their lives with me, thanks to all those reading and commenting, and sharing my life and silliness via this little window!

So, in order to really celebrate this accomplishment of keeping up with the blog for this long, I am going to do a little giveaway. It's just like a "Three magic wishes" but without the Genie!

To enter you have to be a follower of Such Life in the Tropics.
Mandatory entries (you can leave one comment for each entry and have more chances to win). Must do at least 1 of these:
  • Leave a comment telling 3 things you like about my blog.
  • Blog about my giveaway on your blog.
Additional Entries:
  • Grab my button and put it on your blog.
  • Follow me on Pinterest or Instagram [user: caymansunshine]
Giveaway is open to anybody that meets the required entries, regardless of "geographical location" a.k.a. located anywhere in the world and open until Monday June 17th at 12am EST.

So, you might ask; What's in it for me? As always it will include something handmade by "yours truly" plus an extra something from the island where I live.

These 3 little guys will be part of the giveaway

But, but, but... then comes the best part is for this giveaway (I think), this time there's going to be 3 winners!!! [well, as long as I have at least that many people sign up, LOL!].

"Pretty in Pink", "Evergreen" & "True Blue"... 3 lucky fish!
Now, go on, comment and be a winner soon.

Happy Blog-birthday to me!!!

Dear Sunshine - Congratulations!!! :-))) Yes, three is a magic number, and the first figure to hold something inside a triangular shape.
There are so many things I like about your blog, and it is one of the few blogs that I read regularely and comment on. I never get tired of reading about your daily life and perceptions, it is like an ever evolving story - the story of your life, which you genereously share :-)
If I were to mention 3 things I particularely like about your blog, it could be these:
1. Your clean and positive attitude towards life, other people and God. You always have such gratitude towards what life has given you, and are not afraid to share it with others, who are not so fortunate (like for example Yanique)
2. The many great photos from the island, which gives vitamins and inspiration to me, who lives in a very different (and much colder) part of the planet.
3. Your recepies, which are exotic and with a different twist than the ones I usually make.
4. (not enought with 3 things, sorry): Your constancy in sharing what´s on your mind, and your simplicity and humility, not making a big thing out of yourself, but just staying true to who you are...
WELL DONE Mariasol - look forward to following your life adventures during the next 3 years :-)))
xo Anna E
