Well folks, I've gotta hand it to you. We did it! I want to thank you for helping me reach over 1,000 page views!! This blog was a slow process to get started. I started it last year as a sort of means to chronicle the wedding planning, but as you can see if has turned into something more. I'm a big sharer of things that I love, how I feel. It keeps me going knowing that I could potentially help someone have a better day, a successful craft night, an inspirational saying, or a hearty home-cooked meal or dessert! I couldn't have done it without all of you. I appreciate everyone stopping by and taking an interest in some of the same things that I love.
To celebrate, I'm going to hold a contest. Start commenting on here, or on my post about this on Facebook. I want to know one or two things that have been milestones in your life, whether it be an achievement, an award, a turning point, or something you are very proud of. I'll accept comments made from now until May 1.
What is the prize, you ask? I will send you the book 'Fireflies in December', by Jennifer Erin Valent. It's in a trilogy with 'Cottonwood Whispers' and 'Catching Moondrops'. It's one of my favorite books I've read so far this year, and for awhile. It's about a turning point, a milestone in two young girls lives. It takes place in the early 1900's, amidst prejudice and racism. The threat of the Ku Klux Klan is so big in a small southern town that it threatens the lives of a white family that took in an African American girl after the girl's parents died in a fire. It's the Summer that Jessalyn Lassiter stops being a little girl, and starts learning what it really means to love someone so much that you'd risk your life to save hers. Once I started reading this book on my Kindle, I could hardly put it down! So go ahead and start commenting! I would love to share this book with you!!
Thank you all again for helping me make this a successful blog! While you're commenting, feel free to give me some ideas of things you all would like to see on here!
