5 Year Anniversary + Giveaway!

April 8, 2013

I can’t believe it, but I just realized that today, April 8, is my five-year blogging anniversary. Whoah! Where has the time gone? Here’s a link to my very first blog post.

To celebrate, I’m giving away a copy of Uppercase Magazine’s most recent available issue — currently Issue 17. Uppercase is my favorite creative magazine, followed closely by HOW Magazine and the Where Women Create series.


You can learn more about Uppercase here. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I do.

To enter the giveaway, you have two options. First, simply post a comment with a link to your favorite blog post from this website. I’d love to know the posts that have most encouraged or inspired you, or made you laugh… whatever. Second, you can post a link to your favorite magazine that inspires you.

The contest will close Wednesday morning at 8:00 am CST. I’ll choose a winner using random.org, and I’ll post the winner here. Be sure to include your email address in your comment so I can get in touch with you!

Good luck!

    congrats!!!! what a huge accomplishment! I read somewhere that the average life of a blog is 18 months or something. You’ve hung in there, and I’m so glad you did. 🙂

    My favorite post of yours is … well, I can’t find it, because I can’t even remember what month or time of the year you posted it, but I just remember you posting about how you and Chris were thinking about where you wanted to live, your next house, your next venture, your job situations – and I remember reading it and thinking about how much I love reading about you guys *as a couple.* You are such good FRIENDS and partners and spouses … I can just tell that you guys really have an amazing bond. 🙂 I’m sorry I can’t link to it, but I hope you know which one I’m talking about. haha.

    Anyway, congrats again! xo

    Aww, thanks, Keli! That means a lot to me. Given all the transition that’s been going on for the last three years, it’s hard to say which post that was, but I’m glad it stood out to you. Chris and I never have all the answers we want (EVER! Ha!), but we do try to stick together, no matter what. XO
