One year ago today I introduced myself to the blogosphere. A good friend of mine from college was my first follower! Thanks Melissa! I begged my family to become followers in fear that I would have no others....they didn't except for my niece. Thanks Casara! I cherish every comment and feel like I have friends although we have never met~LaToya, Sue (Someone's Mother), April, Any, Amy from PA, Cindy...to name a few.
Who can forget my fellow party girls~Amy from Stem Parties, Morgan from Pepper Design Blog, Christi from P is for Party, Monique from Enchanted Expectations, Kate from Kate Landers Events, Kristi from The Purple Pug, Eleanor from Pink Peppermint Paper, Abigal and Kira from Paper and Cake, Carli from Dimpleprints, Chris from Celebrations at Home, Kara from Kara's Parties, Shelley from Divine Party Concepts, Kim from Frost Me, Terri from Gossie Girl, Dawn at Not Just a Mommy, my girls at Haute Apple Pie, Jessica from Party Box Design and Susan from Poca Cosas.
(Please forgive me if I didn't list you and YOU KNOW we are tight!! It is 2 in the morning now!)
You are such amazing women and I'm so glad to have connected with you all in some way! Thanks for the inspiration!
I read all of the comments from yesterday's post and looked at every one's blog who had one! I found some really cool blogs....thanks. However, the winner of a $50 American Express gift card is Priscilla from The Teagues blog. Her husband Greg is in the Air Force and currently deployed. She has one adorable son named Landon. Since she is away from her family (and husband) her blog is a way to stay connected with them. Priscilla, I really enjoyed your honesty regarding the struggles as a wife of a military man. I will continue to pray for you, your family and for your husband's safe return home. Many blessings my friend. BTW, you all know I was a Marine for 21 years, right?? Wasn't too hard to pick this one! :)
Please email me your address.
Goals for next year~ I want to reach out to more party blogs and feature more budget parties how to's and do better at responding to comments! Thanks everyone!!
