I Made It! - First Blogiversary

One year ago today, I started blogging. There have been setbacks, but—thanks to you awesome folks—things have turned out great. My following has grown, and my cup isn’t just running over, it’s long since flooded the house. 

A year ago, I hadn’t met most of you.
Now I can’t imagine life without you.


So. To say thank you to all the super people in my blogging life (and to move this along before I have to break out a second box of tissues), I'm going to turn it over to Raffelcopter and announce the winners of the giveaway. 

Meager as they are, maybe the prizes will go a little way toward showing how grateful I am for all of you. :)
