One Year Blogiversary!

Has it really been a whole year since I started blogging?!


Time really does fly and although tomorrow is technically a year since my first post, I decided why wait one more day! Actually, I wanted to particpate in my favorite link up, What’s Up Wednesday, so that’s why I’m celebrating today lol.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for following along on my blogging journey so far. It’s been so much fun for me! I have a special giveaway at the bottom of the post to show my appreciation for all of you 🙂

    Girls weekends are always so much fun I just wish they happened more often. I think Nashville, Palm Springs, or anywhere in FL would be a great time! Beautifully Candid

    We are actually taking a girls trip next month to the Washington coast for my Mom’s birthday. We have rented a house and my Sister, three nieces and grand niece will all be there and it should be a lot of fun.
