Blog-Aversary + A Giveaway!!

The time has come.  I can hardly believe it myself, but one year has passed since I found blogging.  I know...I mean, who has only been blogging for a year?!  Me.

On that fateful day of May 7th, when I decided to write my first blog post, my world kind of changed.  Okay...more like my online world changed.  I didn't know much about blogging.  I mean, what do you write about?, but I wanted to give it a shot.  I enjoy writing, and needed a place to get my thoughts and ideas out there.

Through this past year, you have seen my journey through the first year of motherhood.  My writing has evolved with my experience.  I started by posting funny little anecdotes about parenting, and gradually branched out into my ideas on green living, my ideas on discipline, healthy recipes, and now even some crafts.

Thank you to all who have been reading my blog for this last year.  It's kept me going.  It's kept me sane.

I'd like to offer a give-away to celebrate my one-year mark in the blogosphere, and I'd like to open it up to anyone that would like enter.

So, here's the nitty-gritty.
