My one year blogiversary!

I can't believe that today marks one year of writing in this space.  I have been blogging since 2000, and each blog that I have had has meant something different to me.  My first blog was back in college, after one of my apartment mates showed me her blog.  I think that was way in the beginning of blogging.  It was mainly a place for me to write funny stories about the dynamic in our apartment...I wish I had never deleted that blog...there were some seriously funny stories.

I think that blogging is a great outlet.  Especially since I am a stay at home crunchy mama with strange views on just about everything :-)  I have found that it is an excellent community.  For the most part, my experiences here have been very positive!  I love that sense of encouragement that other bloggers seem to give to each other.  It has helped me a lot over the past year.  To know that I have some place to put my thoughts down, and get encouragement from others, and hopefully give a little encouragement as well!

I am looking forward to continuing to grow this blog, and hopefully getting to know more of my bloggy friends in the future!  And to celebrate that, I have a special giveaway!  It includes a wonderful greeting card organizer, and a pack of mixed birthday cards, both from DaySpring.  I'm sure I will have a few other goodies in there as well!  So please, come out of the woodwork and leave me a comment if you would like to be entered for this giveaway!  And for an extra entry, follow my blog :-)  Or if you already follow, just leave a comment that you already follow.


*This giveaway is not sponsored by DaySpring, I just happen to have a lot of their products and enjoy putting packages together :-)
