Celebrating 5 Years and Give Away!

Five years ago, I decided to start a blog. I didn't have alot of knowledge about blogging, I taught myself along the way. I had blogger friends that helped me figure out how to do things as well.  I have traveled far from home on this lap top from my cozy chair. Visiting friends I've made around the states and overseas. It's been a fun journey.

There were times that I felt that blogging needed to go from my life. I took a break. I missed it. Blogging is an outlet for my photography, sharing my life and faith with other people who care to drop into my blogosphere space.  I am so thankful for all of my blogger friends I've made in these FIVE YEARS of blogging.  Now that the party is started, let's eat some cake! 
A party needs a present.  It took me awhile to get my act together. I realized while out at Bauman Farms, awhile ago, I needed some fun items to give away!  My blogoversary was July 8 but since my mom died July 2, I had little desire to do much about this celebration. Til about a month ago....and here we are! Two months later!!! So for a dear blogger friend out there, you will win a prize package.  I fell in love with this twin pack of thick dish towels from Gooseberry. Then there's a vegetable brush, which is sitting on a towel .Or you could use it as a fingernail brush!  A locally made bar of soap from Silver Creek Soap Company...Vanilla and Oatmeal scent. Last but not least, a Totally Tulips 2015 calender with photographs by me!   To win this prize package, worth $35, You need to leave a comment on my blog and you must have left a comment on my blog in these past 5 years. I know who you are!  I appreciate all of my readers. You will have until Saturday Sept 20 to comment. Good comments. Your name will be put in a bowl and your name will be drawn and Sunday Sept 21 and then I will post the winner! Thanks for helping me celebrate!!!!

Happy 5th Becky! I totally get the blog thing as there have been times when I thought I should let it go too, but it's an outlet for many of the interests I have and I truly enjoy meeting others with the same passions.
YEA, Baumans! Great place:) I can't participate in the give-away, but whoever the winner is will surely enjoy the great gifts/prizes you have chosen!
Blessings,
Aimee

Congratulations! Time sure fly's by quickly, doesn't it? I'll be celebrating October 30th, 2014. I guess that's one year more than you. :) I was so happy when you began your blog. I enjoy reading it and browsing the beautiful photographs that you share. Keep in snapping! lol (snapperbeck) Hey, how did you come up with that handle? Hugs, Janet

Happy anniversary to your blog! I only know you because of it - what a small world it is:) Praying year 6 will find you in lots more exciting places and your blog showing off those pictures!

Cheers for five years of blogging, Becky! I too find that the platform of blogging gives me the opportunity to explore, enjoy, and develop many of my interests. Others who visit and comment on my posts often encourage me and in turn, I enjoy visiting their blogs and encouraging them. It is lovely of you to have a giveaway in celebration of the five years you have been blogging. Blessings to you and yours, xx

I am SO behind on my blog reading that I just saw this post. Happy anniversary! Five years is a milestone. I am so happy you decided to blog so that I had a chance to "meet" you. I enjoy your pictures and your comments so much. I hope year 6 brings you more exciting things to share.

Five years is great! Many people give up much sooner. I'm sorry about your mom. That loss is never easy no matter the age. You are so kind to do a giveaway! I must do that sometime!

Happy five years my friend! Crazy how quickly the time flies by, isn't it?? Hmmm....we began our blogging journeys just one month apart. My first post went up at the beginning of August, 2009. I think we met not long after that. :) Hugs to you! Camille
