One Year Blogiversary & Giveaway

Today marks one year of blogging. 

One year ago today I sat down at my computer and wrote a post. The post declared to all that I was a terrible blogger and I was.

Over the previous year I had tried to start blogging and failed. For some reason on that day I decided to go for “it”, not even knowing what “it” was. Ever since that post I have been blogging faithfully. In fact over the past year I have published 259 posts. 

Ultimately it isn’t about a number of posts. It is about the 259 chances those posts gave me. The opportunities I have had to connect with readers, share my life, inspire, encourage, be myself (my real self), craft, cook, share my kids and occasionally poor out my heart when verbally I just couldn’t do it.

I have learned so much about myself living the life of a blogger.

And who knows, maybe I’m not such a terrible blogger after all.

Today I wanted to share with you 5 of my favorite posts from the past year. 

Our Home Tour

We all know a celebration wouldn’t be complete without a giveaway.
So, here you have it! 
I am giving away a Pretty Girls Handmade scarf. I will email the winner with some pattern choices to pick from when they are selected. You will also receive a $5 Starbucks gift card. 
Good luck!
Thank you so much for reading along.
You are what makes this so much fun and worth celebrating.

  1. Congratulations on one year! Reading this today was perfect timing for me…. I am in the same boat you were a year ago… I want to blog more regularly but I let life get in the way and will end up blogging once a week and sometimes not at all. Well today I am making a plan and goal to blog more! 🙂

  2. Congratulations, and Happy Blogiversary!
    I love looking back on my first few posts to see just how much my writing and photography has developed in the past few years. It's so much fun when you have something tangible to see your progress.
    P.S. I ADORE all your scarves!!

  3. Thank you so much! Blink twice and it will be here before you know it :). I went in to this blogging thing completely clueless with no idea what I should expect and after a year I still feel pretty clueless, but I think I am getting the hang of it… maybe.
