1st Bloggiversary and a Giveaway


A year ago today I entered the blogging world. This has been an amazing experience for me. My husband had wanted me to start one for years and finally talked me into it. Some days I'm still not sure, but overall it's been an enjoyable experience. I've made some blogging friends and learned some things about myself. I've enjoyed sharing recipes, sewing projects and personal thoughts here. I hope it's also been a blessing to those who read these posts. So what has this year looked like?
 
Some of the most popular posts...
My favourite post was School and Grace. I think this is my favourite because I really share my heart in it.
 
I did two special series. One about breastfeeding, and one about toddler fun. I have some more series planned for this year. I just need to get them out of the planning stage and into the writing stage. ☺
 
My sister-in-law and sister both did a guest post. One on nursing twins and the other on making a doll house. They did a super job, and I enjoyed their input.
 
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me. And as a thank you I have a very special giveaway that I'm excited about.
 
This is a canvas bag that measures 14 by 16 inches. I really want to keep this one, but I'll gladly give it away to one of you. ☺ So how can you win this?

  1. Hi Jen. I love your blog, and our friendship that came about as a result of our blogging. I am so glad that hubby talked you into it. Hmmm, in order to pick my favorite, I am going to probably have to go back and read some more. I do know I liked the one where you shared what your children were making for each other for Christmas. I think it is wonderful to teach them to give from the heart and share a part of themselves with each other.

    1. Your comments are always a blessing too. I guess we're a "mutual admiration society". :)

  7. Happy Anniversary!! I'm so glad that you've stuck with it. I think I'd have to say that my favorite post is Brave or Dependent bcs it reminds me that no matter the size of our families, our dependency must be upon God and not ourselves. :)

  8. I don't think I have a favourite post, although I did look back to see if I could find one. (I tend to look at your sewing posts over and over, trying to imagine if I could make it or not.) I just love reading about another family, going through life, same as my family, giving it their all and loving each other. Your heart for your family comes through in your blog. :-)

  10. Just signed up for your blog. Leaned about it from Julie. Knew your family from my MBBC days. You and your sisters were young ladies then. Your family came to our wedding and Joy was our flower girl. I traveled in summer ensembles during the summer and your dad often traveled with our group and did the preaching.

  12. Happy Anniversary. Thank you for sharing your family's journey through your blog. It has been a real blessing to me personally. My favorite post was also School & Grace because I got great encouragement from it. I pray that you will continue to touch & bless hearts through this blog. Keep it up!
