Today is officially one year since I typed up my first post on "Never Grow Up". Now, here I am, 183 posts later, at 90 followers and over 36,000 page views! I didn't quite get to my goal of 100 followers by today, but I'll take 90 with a thankful heart. :)
I can't thank all of you enough for making my blogging experience so wonderful. You've showered me with kind, thoughtful comments, read my ramblings over and over again, and given me a fun little escape from the pressures of everyday life as a stay-at-home mom. I love my children so much, but it's nice to have a way to connect to people without leaving home...since getting away without kids can be pretty tricky. ;)
Anyway, I know I say the same things over and over again, but I just wanted to let you all know how very much I appreciate you. That being said, I wanted to show you that appreciation in a more tangible way. I'm going to be doing a giveaway to celebrate! :)
The prizes are:
A beautiful Thomas Kinkade Cinderella postcard, the perfect size for a doll poster!
You will have until Monday, August 1st to comment. On Tuesday, August 2nd, I'll do the drawing and announce the winner. The winner will have 3 days to respond. If I haven't heard from them by Friday, August 5th, a new winner will be chosen.
Here's a shot of everything together (sorry, Emma is not part of the giveaway!!). ;) Can't wait to see who wins! :D
I have a big post that should be published soon (just have to add the finishing touches) and more posts planned for this week, so keep checking back!
P.S. I had waayyy too much fun trying to figure out my new header. I had another one that I really liked, but I thought the one I chose gave a more complete picture of what my blog is about. I liked my other header so well, though, that I thought I'd share it with you here. :) I wish I could do it even larger, but the next size up really interferes with the pics on my sidebar. :( Hope you enjoy it anyway!
