Bloggy Bday Celebration and Giveaway!!


It is hard for me to believe that one year ago today, I started my little ole blog.  I remember how nervous I was and how I had no clue, technology wise what I was doing!!!  Now it's a year later and I have no other words to say besides "THANK YOU!"

Blogging and blog stalking has truly blessed my life both personally and professionally.  I have been encouraged, inspired, made friends, laughed with friends, learned, and hopefully along the way, given back:)

For my bloggy birthday we're having a party!!!  (Oh, how I wish everyone could come to my backyard for cake and ice cream!!!!!  Let's pretend, ok??)  Instead, I am having a HUGE, FUN,  giveaway!  Several awesome friends have jumped aboard with me with some awesome prizes.  One person will win the entire jackpot!!!  3 items of your choice from my store and all these yummies from my bloggy buds:

Good luck to all and thank you so much for a year of tremendous blessings:)
