Life is Good Blogiversary Giveaway!

I'm interrupting the previously scheduled curriculum review for a little celebration I almost forgot: It's my one year blog-iversary!

And this is something to celebrate for a couple of reasons.

One, because it means I actually kept up with a project for a full year, and that, for me, is an amazing happening. Really. My house, computer, mind, is FULL of unfinished projects. So this is big.

Two, because of what I've learned this past year. I started this blog because I was in a homeschooling rut, and I was desperate. I thought maybe if I got online to talk about my homeschooling days, then I would be inspired to make each day, well, something to blog about. And it did help. A lot.

March 2009, Starting Out

But what I didn't expect was to be so welcome-ly included into the bloggy homeschooling community.

I didn't expect to find so many wonderful ideas all over blogland that would inspire and enrich my homeschool AND my life.

I didn't expect to find friends, both homeschoolers and non-homeschoolers, who would share comments, ideas, and laughs daily.

I didn't expect to be inspired to become a better wife, mother, chef, teacher, photographer, writer... but because of YOUR BLOGS, I have been.

Life is Good.

So I'm celebrating by thanking my readers for being there. For making my life good. And to make life even better, the folks at Relaxadaisical are helping me celebrate by giving away one of their awesome Life is Good diner mugs to one of my readers. Yippee! Because I LOVE Life is Good products. I mean really, really love them. If it were up to me, my entire wardrobe would be Life is Good t-shirts, because they make me happy to look at them.

I mean,

don't you love it?

And I love the color names they come up with for their products - canoe, pickup truck, picket fence, pink lemonade.... brilliant!

And their diner mugs are not only cool and cheery, but just feel good to hold. Like, sitting-by-a-campfire-drinking-coffee-first-thing-in-the-morning-by-a-big-mountain-lake kinda feel good. So I'm so excited one of you is going to get one.

To enter the giveaway, just go to, look at their stuff, then come back and tell me in a comment which product you like the most (if you can choose just one. If not, okay, you can list more). Also tell me which of the mug designs you would want to win if you win.

You can find all their mug designs here.

That's it.

You can enter even if you've never commented before, because I would love to meet you!

The winner will be chosen in a random drawing on May 9 (Mother's Day).

Good luck, and thank you for being here!


  1. Love their stuff too! I clicked over and I love the t-shirt with the hibiscus on it...the green one.

    Love all the mugs but I like the green with the daisy the best. :)

    Happy Blogiversary! I have enjoyed following your blog this year.

  2. You are so sweet! Has it been a year already? I wonder when I started reading your blog... hmmm? Probably close to a year.
    I think of you as one of my friends. I always enjoying seeing your family and hearing about your homeschooling.

    As for which items I like. I really like their t-shirts and mugs.
    my favorite mug is the organic flower on sequoia.

    happy anniversary with your blog.

  3. It's only been a year? I thought you'd been blogging awhile - you're so good at it! Happy blogiversary! Hadn't heard of this company before - cute stuff! My fave mug is spread the love on orange. That'd give my cup of joe a little jolt. ;)

  4. Happy 1 year!! I love reading your blog and am so proud of all that you do...blogging and beyond! Your blog inspired my blog, so thank you for that!
    I loved the site. Tim has "texture issues" and the Life is Good wear is so soft, that they have become his favorite t-shirts. I found several he would like...Father's Day maybe!
    How perfect is the green mug for DJ! So I choose that one to give to her!!

  5. Happy blogiversary! So glad to meet you over these last couple weeks - I'll be stopping by your blog often :)

    I love their stuff too, and I especially like the Good Karma Organic tees for women, men and boys.

    I love the Good Karma Mug Organic Flower on Sequoia - although the owl is fantastic too.

    Life is good!! :)

  6. I'm a sucker for a bag so of course my heart went pitter patter when I saw the Fresh Floral Tote on Blue Jeans!

    my fav mug is Harmony on Pickup truck

    What fun!

  7. Congrats on the blog, it is sooooo good and you are amazing!!

    I love the "These are the good old days" design, on anything! It reminds me that these are the times to cherish, right here and now.

    ... and of course it has a dog and a beach and it makes me happy. Makes me want to play leap frog with my dogs (and be positive and believe I won't fall on them).

    The Daisy mug (of course)!


  8. Hello,
    I am visiting your blog through You Capture and I loved your poem! I can't decide between the harmony mug and and the heart mug so if I win, surprise me! I live in MN and have been to their store many times, in fact my sister used to work in a sister-store in Duluth, MN.

    Thanks, and happy mother's day!

  9. I love the pink heart mug!

  10. I LOVE reading your blog. It's the first thing I do every morning.

    My favorite item is the surfer blue Daisy beach towel. Can you imagine why? Likewise I like the Daisy mug. Happy Mother's Day to YOU!

    I absolutely LOVE your blog! You are my favorite blogger and are very inspiring. I am so proud of you! Your ideas help us in our everyday schooling. Your words are a blessing everyday.
    Happy Mother's Day to a most fabulous, inspiring mother.

    I like the "Good Home Diner Mug Pass It On on Lemonade", but more than that I love your blog!
    Happy Blogiversary Cuz!
