It’s My Blogiversary!

Break out the bubbly, it’s Mommyfriend’s 1 year Blogiversary!

One year ago today, I published my very first post, a welcome message that I believe more today than ever.  My blogging adventure has been a wild ride filled with heaping amounts of joy, a fair amount of technical frustration, a few tears, boundless inspiration and overwhelming gratification.

In the last year, Mommyfriend has brought me 3 things for which I am supremely grateful and humbled.

1.  My writing voice.  30% sassy, 60% sweet, 10% nasal.  Joy.

2.  The opportunity to partner with the creative genius that is Big Daddy P.  Joy squared.

3.  You, my Mommy Friends.  You are my gang, my peeps, the people who get me.  Exponential joy.

Sniff, sniff, enough of all that, I’m not a pretty crier.  Let’s get this party started!

In honor of Mommyfriend’s Blogiversary, I’m hosting Mommyfriend’s 7 Days of Giveaways!  Can you dig it?

Think of it as a poor girl’s version of “Oprah’s Favorite Things”.  I’m giving away my favorite things all week because giving is fun but getting is funner!

Just check in with Mommyfriend every day from 1/4/11 through 1/10/11 to take a peek at what I’m giving away that day.  If you see something you like, just leave a comment on that day’s post and you’ll be entered to win.  Winners will be announced the following day.  Yes, it really is that easy because you’re a mom and life is hard enough.

Mommyfriend’s 7 Days of Giveaways is open to U.S. Residents only.

A thousand thank you’s for your love and support this year; you complete me.  For reals.

Remember to check in tomorrow for Day 1 of our 7 Days of Giveaways!  Hint: Mmm!
