Did You Think I'd Forget?



this month is my 1 year bloggity blog anniversary. talk about flyyyyyyy by. i’ll never forget the first time I wrote a blog entry. i'd been blog stalking Jami Nato for months. she was one of the first blogs I ever read. after posting my first entry I emailed her to let her know she had inspired me and she actually answered back. i was totally star-struck. blown away that she would take the time to email me back and be so kind. it seriously fueled me and helped me get off to a great start.

i’m excited about this keepsake I’ve managed to put down into words for a whole year now. for those of you who do this weekly you know the time & discipline it takes to keep your life story here on the web.

so get excited ya’ll bc you know what happens when we celebrate or have a party. things start flying everywhere and into some_ one of your sweet little laps.

i’m having a giveaway.
To enter just leave me a comment telling me
   1. why you love blogging (if you do).
If not, tell me which necklace in my shop is your favorite.




For additional entries you can:
2. tweet about the giveaway and then leave a comment letting me know you did.
3.   bc we’re having fun here. tell me your absolute favorite product ever. It can be a lotion, perfume, cleaning product, make-up, etc.

at Christmas time we gave family members tea towels with their last name initial. They turned out to be a hit. so recently I decided to make some for the shop! 
they are one-of-a-kind and as I get them made I’ll keep adding them in.

  5. Happy 1 year! That's so exciting. I've been loving you blog for awhile now. Not sure if I ever commented, I tend to loose track. I just love how honest your posts always are and you pictures are beautiful!

    Now for why I love blogging. I haven't been doing it regularly for very long, just since the beginning of the year, but I'm just loving the creative outlet that it is. I've always loved writing, but when I had my daughter 6 months ago that all but stopped. Blogging is a way for me to hold on to that part of myself and maintain an identity apart from being a mommy and wife. Just recently I've started to really get to know fellow bloggers and I'm really loving that aspect of the blogging world.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. Happy happy happy blogiversary :) I'm so glad to have found you. You're so inspiring to me as a mother, godly woman, and friend.. I hope to "know" you for a long time to come :)

    Now on to my entry....I love blogging because it is a desperately needed outlet for all the thoughts that run through my brain, and I have met some really amazing women and formed friendships that I NEVER would have without it.

    I'm not on twitter yet...boo...so I can't tweet it but I would.

  19. you are awesome and adorable!! love your photo at the top most of all in this whole post. congrats on your 1 year!! my favorite thing about blogging is using my words as an offering to the Lord and then, on occasion, getting a glimpse of how He's used it. (and my NEWEST fave necklace is the turq chevron!!)

  20. my favorite product is probably moroccan oil for my hair. but the black error box next to my name on these comments instead of my photo is NOT my favorite. Why is that happening???

  27. I love to blog because of the people I've met (either online or in person)... and because of the outreach. I've had women contact me about different posts on my blog and it's always a blessing to hear from them!

  28. And my favorite product EVER? Wow, that's a hard one. I'm going to stray away from make-up and cleaning and go with what I look forward to most every morning... Peet's coffee. The mocha java beans are my fave!
