blogoversary + giveaway!

Four years. FOUR YEARS! It's been a long time blogging for me, and four years later I still love it and enjoy my time spent on here chronicling my family's dailys. And still after all these years, I sometimes find myself feeling like a newbie with so much more to learn and accomplish. Bring it, 2012!

This years blogging experience has been particularly amazing, and has me on fire for the coming year! I have recently enjoyed opportunities with blogger event invites (last one was at Knotts Berry Farm!), my first invite to do a guest post, a ridiculously fun modeling offer (Graham and I did a shoot for an upcoming issue of Babiekins Magazine 2012!) and product reviews have just started coming my way... again all new learning experiences making me feel like I have no idea what I'm doing, and totally loving it!

All your kind comments are so appreciated! I love sharing them with Jeff all the time and constantly confusing him by referring to you guys as, "you know, my friend ____, from her cute blog ____!" I cherish all the friendships that have been established and grown over the past four years and it means the world that you take time out of your day to stop by and say hi here. You're all invited to Graham-bear's 1st birthday party in March! :)

My Etsy shop! {Opened December 2nd, 2011.} Such an exciting, successful experience! Big hugs to all of you who have encouraged me in my crochet craft. The shop support I received for something I truly love, has me reaching for the stars now. So thanks guys. I owe you...

Well, how 'bout a GIVEAWAY!! YOU get a bow! And YOU get a bow! And YOU get a bow! (Oprah anyone?) Really though, FOUR bows (for four years!), ONE winner! Aaaand ONE surprise crochet item... I've got some new shop products in the works. Exciting, yes?!
