Blog Anniversary & Giveaway

Happy one-year anniversary!!!  Last year, on June 10th, I did my first blog post.  Through all the ups and downs of deployments, marriage and mommyhood, this blog has been a safe haven - a great place to put my feelings out there and connect with so many great people.  I cannot imagine going through this past deployment without all of the MilSpouses out there who encouraged me along the way.  And I'm so thankful that this blog has allowed me to share my heart, my worries and my joys.  For those of you who have been following - thank you for your support!

To celebrate, I'm doing my first giveaway!  My cousin, Beth, has an Etsy shop - Busy Bee Gifts.  She has the crafty gene, that I didn't get and has been busy making totes, wristlets, earrings, key fobs and insulated tumblers.  She created a tumbler, just for this giveaway.  It will be personalized with the winner's name, once the winner has been selected.

Here is an idea of the finished product - of course with the winner's name!

Here is the cup - just waiting to be personalized

To enter the anniversary giveaway, all you have to do is:
 - Be a follower of this blog
 - Leave a comment telling me if you are a new or "old" follower &;
tell me what you're enjoying most about your summer so far.

Easy Breezy!  The giveaway will close on Friday, July 1st at 11:59 EST.  I will announce the winner on Saturday, July 2nd.

Oh Jill I have been following along since pretty much the beginning and my favorite thing about summer so far is watching my son enjoy all the things that summer has to offer like camping and swimming and playing outside!

I'm an old follower, and I really enjoy reading your posts.
So far this summer I'm just enjoying spending time outdoors with my family. My husband returned the end of April from deployment so we are making up for lost time as a family, and there is no better place to do that than in the sun and fresh air.

Happy Blogaversary! I'm an old follower. It doesn't feel like summer in the PNW yet but I'm enjoying being outside when the weather's nice!
