Okay, so this post is my 300th post, which feels like a very big deal.
When I started my blog almost exactly two years ago, I never imagined that people would actually read it. Now, not only do I have readers, but I have made so many friends through blogging and you all have been an amazing community of supporters for me. I love and adore each and every one of you (mushy mushy mushy, I know. But seriously)!
If it wasn't for the support of my blog readers...
You've been there for me during all the major events in my life in the last two years. From putting in an offer on our first house just this past week (yay!), to our stressful move last summer, to encouraging me through my 50,000 word National Novel Writing Month goal last November (I never would have done it without you), to the horrible night when Annelie drank solvents and I learned just how scary being a mom can be (that post still makes me shake!)
Some of you have been following my stories since my first month of blogging (Cathy! Janell! Natalie!), some of you I have had the pleasure of visiting with in person (Melanie in Louisiana! Holly in Oregon! Tia in Texas! Anne in Arkansas!) and all of you remind me on a regular basis, that I'm not the only mom on the planet who is being driven nuts by her non-napping, high-energy, tantrum-throwing kids.
I truly can not express my thanks to all of you for becoming a part of my life and making blogging so much fun for me - But I'll try my best... with a giveaway!
I'll be choosing one winner next Saturday, September 12th, for a $25 Elegant Snobbery gift certificate (also good for my paperie shop). You can keep it for yourself, or I can send you a digital certificate to print out and give as a gift... either way, I hope you like it!
How to enter: leave me a comment on this post and make sure I have a way to contact you.
I look forward to sharing the next 100 posts with you all! Thanks again!
