Pink&Green Thursday, One-Year Blog Anniversary Edition

Happy Pink&Green Thursday!


Happy Birthday to My Little Blog!

I can't believe it has been a whole year since I started this blog with the premise of posting my random projects&recipes, originally with a specific focus on my Halloween projects&recipes. Well, my friends, I did make a lot of those, but I did not blog a lot of them. I am not sorry, though, as I did eventually find my niche in this amazing blog community, & I am so glad that I did!


(Y'all know it's my favorite!)
my own little What I Want This Weekend...

...with every random...

& recipe in between...

I appreciate all of you

& readers


& motivating

me along my fledgling way.

Your sweet comments were what kept me up later, searching for that perfect photo. The posts on your own inspirational blogs were what made me set aside recipe posts for yet another week or two, as I attempted to contribute something that might be as beautiful or as meaningful, to your hop or linky. But it was

your kindness,
your understanding,
& most importantly your friendship

that made this such an amazing freshman year in blogging.

Thank you
thank you
thank you
to all of you!

& a special thank you to:

Beth Dunn at Social Climbers
Margaret Asbell at 2PreppyGirls
Jessica Maher at Kitchen Belleicious
Princess Freckles at Her Highness of Cute
Lori Driver at Shopaholic in Alabama
Mollie Morris at (a)Mother Blog
& especially Trish at Pink Preppy Lilly Lover

...All of you have been here since almost the very beginning. I truly appreciate y'all for getting to know the real me, & for sticking around while I got the hang of this blogging thing. You are all *so loved!*
