It's a Big Day!


Two years ago today, I sat myself down at our computer and tapped out my very first blog post.

Yeah, nothin' to write home to mom about...BUT!! I discovered something. I discovered that I love writing, I love reading, I love this community that we bloggers share. I feel like I stumbled upon a little nugget of gold...and with it? Some pretty amazing people!

So friends, join me in celebrating my 2nd Blogoversary!

Over the past two years I've written about so much...my grandpa and a pot plant, a fist full of belly fat, a memo to my children, a note (or 800) to my body, a subsequent apology to my body, a political(ish) post or two, a few on religion, and a whole bunch of Talkin' Shop!

As my way of saying thanks to all of you who come here to read, to give me encouragement, to send prayers, and to share your stories...this one's for YOU! AND, because I love ya all so much, let's have ourselves a giveaway!

Here's how it'll work...all you've gotta do is comment...on any (or all...i.e-so, the more posts you comment on the more entries for YOU!) posts between (and including) this one and Friday's (5QF), and you're entered to win! Win what? You say? How 'bout a $50 Visa Card...to be used anywhere Visa is accepted? (Which is, well, pretty much anywhere, right?!)

It's also monumental week...I will also be posting my 1,000 blog post! Watch for it! (Okay, don't...you know I'll let you know when it happends!!) Yikes...that's a lot of posts! Who knew I had so much to say?!

So, once again, thank you. Thank you for laughing with me, crying with me, venting with me, and praying with me. Y'all are the best...and I appreciate every single, stinkin' one of ya!

I would also like to wish our sweet Godson a Happy 10th Birthday!!! We love you H.!

(PS...Don't forget the giveaway for a $100 Dick's Sporting Goods gift card that I've got going on on my review blog, sponsored by Gatorade and BlogHer!)

-----------------------------------------

The giveaway for my blogoversary is sponsored by moi. Moi knows me very, very well and probably has a tendency to favor me. (For those of you that don't speak French...moi = me. As in, this giveaway is sponsored by ME!)
