This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

100 Followers + Blogoversary = Giveaway! **CLOSED**

This weekend I finally made it to 100 followers!

I've been watching the numbers slowly climb over the last few weeks and suddenly, *pop* *pop* *pop-pop*, it reached 100 and then passed it! Wow!

When I first started this blog, I hoped to have a few followers, but I never really expected to get so many! I am not quite sure why you all are following me, but I am sure glad you are. I am just a regular nobody, but you all make me feel like I am somebody. And so I thank you.

And what better way to thank you than with a giveaway?!

With my 2nd blogoversary coming up at the end of the month (August 27th to be exact), I've been planning to do a little something to celebrate. And with the 100th follower, I decided, why wait!?

It's nothing much, but the winner of my giveaway will get a custom made pocket notebook from me.

You can choose the colors or let me know if there's anything in particular you would like your notebook to reflect.

Here are a few notebooks I've made in the past to give you an idea of what you could win:

(Disclaimer - I am new at making notebooks, and do not consider myself an expert by any means. )

To win:

  • You must be a follower.
  • You must leave a comment telling me what makes you follow my blog and what your favorite feature on my blog is.
  • You must have a Canadian or American Mailing address. I apologize to my international friends.

The winner will be drawn using Winner will be announced on my blog one week from today and they will have 48 hours to email me their contact information.

Good Luck!

Oh, I forgot to say, I am now a follower. I joined because I want to read more about your journey and to offer my support to you, if you should want it. My favorite thing about your blog itself is your beautiful background. However, my favorite thing about your blog overall is the incredible amount of strength and courage I've seen you display in your posts (in the ONE day I've been here reading!) You truly seem to be an amazing woman and I look forward to getting to know you better.

First of all, please do not put yourself down like that. You are not a nobody and I don't want to hear you say that!!!!!!! Grrrrrrrr.

Second, I read your blog because I feel like we've developed a "relationship" so to speak (as much as you can in this weird blogging world) and I feel like I've gotten to know you a little bit and I like to see how you are doing and growing and I admire you for keeping on after facing so many heartbreaks in life. And I will never give up trying to get you to read a vampire book. I just won't. : )

I don't have any particular feature I like more than another ... I like that you keep things short and sweet and are just a real person. I mostly like to read blogs that seem authentic and genuine and yours is one of those.

I am excited to see your giveaway is up and running...sooner than I expected!

I visit you because I care, I hope you know that. One day I hope to give you a hug IRL.

Keep up the great work, here on your blog.

What a great give away! Everything in your shop is wonderful!! Following you now!

As far as how I get people to have give aways on my blog - I don't do much of anything, lately they have been coming to me. I'm sure that will end one day.

I'm a new follower but the reason I'm following is because your blog is cute and so are your etsy items! I also love how you write book reviews, I do too,and I love getting to read other people's book reviews. That's the number one way I find out about books I might want to read :)
