One Year...Plus a GIVEAWAY!

I think we've already discussed my need to have clearly defined beginnings, so of course it makes sense that I started this little blogging adventure one year ago on January 1, 2014. Hard to believe that an entire year has passed...

I've got to admit, blogging has been more than I ever expected it to be. More time consuming {just ask the husband}...but also so much more rewarding! I love that I can look back on the posts I've written over the past 365 days as a scrapbook, documenting both the day-to-day as well as the exciting/less common details of our lives.

The most surprising aspect of this little bloggety-blog {and I know everyone says this on their blogiversary, but I can't leave out the biggest impact} has been the relationships. Not only am I truly amazed by the number of other bloggers I've "met" and built friendships with, but I've also been so pleasantly surprised by the comments/feedback I've received from people I know in real life.  I can't tell you how much it brightens my day to read each and every comment, whether it be posted directly on the blog, on Facebook or via email. Thank you...thank you for making this little blogging project worth my time and effort!  

With all that being said, there's no better way to celebrate a birthday than with gifts...right?!!? Sooo...I'd like to thank YOU, for reading and supporting my little corner of the internet, with a giveaway. Enter below to win a $50 Visa gift card plus a few of my favorites from the "Leslie Loves..." posts {just for full disclosure purposes, it's probably safe to assume it'll be a few of the smaller ticket items...but they're still fabulous!}.  You know the whole rafflecopter drill, so just do your thing below to enter to win! Good luck!
