Celebrating My Blog Anniversary With A Giveaway!

I can't believe I've stuck with something for a year.  Really.  This from the girl who couldn't complete any craft project as a Blue Bird.  I started a blog after my friend C-Joy told me about hers, and encouraged me to try it out.  I owe her a huge Thank You! for starting me on a journey where I've met so many great people, had a chance to vent, and given me a creative outlet.  My other Blog, Bookalicious Babe became an extension of this one when I realized my all consuming, kinda over-the-top passion for books required an outlet of it's own.  That has opened up doors for me I never thought were possible, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  

To celebrate my anniversary, I'm giving away a lovely little prize:

Yes, you can be the recipient of this lovely prize package!
I thought I would offer up a package of happiness.  Since I don't feel comfortable mailing a bottle of wine, instead a happy journal, magnet, lovely little book, and some pens are what you'll get.  I'll keep the wine at my house, okay?  Trust me, I'll be happy when I drink it. ;)

If you would like to enter into the giveaway, this is what you have to do:
1.  Join my blog, if you haven't already and tell someone else about it.  Then comment about it here!
2.  Do a random act of kindness sometime in the next week (March 1-March 8th) and tell me about it.
3.  Do one thing for yourself  that makes you happy ( and is legal!) and tell me about it.

Each entry is one more chance for you to win!

Thank you all to everyone who reads my ramblings.  I may not have the most exciting life, and I may keep on struggling to achieve my goals, but it is never boring.  Bud keeps me sane, and he is the reason I keep moving forward.  If I didn't, he'd leave me in the dust!  Definitely a man of action.  I asked for the universe to send me a man that would challenge me, and I got what I asked for.  Phew.  Thank you, universe!

What's on tap for the next year?  Well, lots of photos!  I can't wait for warmer weather, so I can get out and snap away.  Garden plans are starting to occupy my brain, and of course, running.  I am so looking forward to sharing with you my running triumphs and f**k ups.  Food is never far from my mind, so that will still be on my blog, too.  I am not the best cook, but I still love to try new recipes.  

Happy March 1st, everyone!  You have until the end of the day, March 8th, to enter the giveaway.  I will announce the winner March 9th.


  1. What a fantastic idea! I am going to enter! I already follow you AND I've already told people about you. So that is #1 - check. I will do a random act of kindness for someone asap. I love that!! And do something that makes me happy? mmm...I LOVE that idea too. I will admit, right this minute it's what I'm doing. I am having my breakfast, sitting in the dining room catching up on blog posts. I LOVE doing that. So that definitely qualifies as something that makes me happy. Okay. Random act of kindness here I come! Have a great day ms. caboo.

  2. happy blogversary!!! I'm always reading, even if I'm a crappy comment leaver (I HATE commenting from my phone, but I read lots on it). love this giveaway!

    off to randomly act kind ;)

  3. Congrats on your blogiversary! I always love hearing what you're up to! You inspire me to continue pushing myself. So step 1 I've done both things. Step 2: random act of kindness. I haven't done that, but boy did I see one last night done for my mother. I'll share that story when I have my own to report. Step 3: Something that makes me happy...If you count blogging as that I'm already doing it. Oh, and I spent a good chunk of time curled up on the couch with a really good new book I'm reading while my son played happily around me. That's definitely something I love!

    I can't wait to see your photos! I'm looking forward to the warmth so I can get out there too. I just love landscape photography! Enjoy your Bud. He sounds like a great guy and I'm genuinely happy you have each other.

  4. Congrats Sue! That is awesome... Look my friend, I am leaving blogland and I think that constitutes doing something that makes me utterly happy and I hope that I can enter your contest. On another note though, I would like to keep in contact with you and if you are on facebook, would you let me know. I would love to connect, and I will be confining my following to a small number of blogs, you being one of them! Thanks for all the love and support on mine!

    Cheers darlin
