joyeux anniversaire



I just realized today is the 1 year anniversary of IA. It is an important date because this blog has meant so much to me.


So to celebrate, I wanted to gift you guys. I am doing a little giveaway of 1 iPhone case (1st photo) and 2 sets of original watercolor postcards (which I will paint especially for this giveaway).


This is my way of saying thank you for all the amazing people I met through this blog, to you for being supportive, kind, and real.

Just leave a comment and a way for me to contact you back. :)

**UPDATE** I will draw the winner's Sunday morning ;-)

Jeanie said...

Happy First Blogaversary. I suspect you will have many more, but I'm not sure there is anything like the first, when you realize that for the past year you have been sharing a part of yourself with mostly people you don't know -- and they love it and validate it and support you. The blog world is indeed lovely and we are all richer for what you bring to it.
