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.
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.
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 relaxadaisical.com, 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.
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!
