happy birthday

I started this blog exactly one year ago today. If a little bird


had told me it was going to mushroom
into what it is now, I would have never believed it. I think you all are the bee's knees
for taking the time to pencil
in your comments. I enjoy reading each and every one of them oodles and oodles.
To celebrate, I'm giving away each of the items pictured in this post. Just tell me what you enjoy most about this little blog of mine. I'll draw the 6 winners...yes, I said 6...on Monday.
Here's to one year in the bag.

What I love about reading your blog is that you always present the coolest items, not seen everywhere on all the other blogs. I usually want everything I see on your blog. And know where to get it when the money allows! Thanks!

Hmmm...that is tough. You have great gift ideas, some that are really witty like the timer for example, really good suggestions, but my favorite part is YOU! I feel like you bring a sweetness to everything you write, and I look forward to dropping by each day.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Bloggy Birthday to you!
What I adore about visiting you are the fabulous gift-giving ideas. They are all unique and clever. You also give us a glimpse into your life with children every now and then and that's always fun!
Done always with style and panache.

happy one year anniversary! my favorite thing (besides the great ideas, cool products and witty comments) is that i feel like it keeps me connected to the florida crew. :)

When I asked what you enjoy most, I was wanting to be sure I was writing what everyone wanted to read about...you know...now, that it has been a year, time to reflect and renew. Anyway, all your nice comments are a boost to the ego. Next time I need a lift, I'm coming straight to you guys.
Thanks everyone!!

Just 1 year ago??? Gosh it feels like I've been "knowing" you for ages. Congrats on the birthday and I look forward to many more years of reading your warm words!

Your posts always give a positive start to my day. Your blog is ALL about giving and doing for others and I can't think of a more selfless blog out there! Seriously. You're creative and kind, but you challenge us all to constantly think of how to brighten our loved ones' days. Thanks for the inspiration!
