My First Bloganniversary ♥

It has been a year of discovery.  A year of discovering wonderful, inspiring, like minded, humorous people.  A year of discovering more of who I am and not being afraid to put my photos and words out into Blogland.  A year of discovering that people are really kind in actually reading my posts and taking time out of their busy lives to leave comments.  Each comment has warmed my heart, smiles appear and occasional laughter.  It's been an amazing journey, never thinking that my little blog would be read by people in places that I will never see, let alone being followed by so many talented people.  It's been a journey of expanding my knowledge on how Blogland works, perseverance (remember Google Reader is about to stop - my Bloglovin button is on the left), and really enjoying myself.  So thank you all, thank you from the bottom of my very humble heart for sticking with me and reading about my ramblings.  And as a further thank you, Miss Teenager has chosen the winners of my blog anniversary giveaway.  So...drum roll....

The winners are:
The Boy - Reuben Firefly (Sarah Louise at Looking as u are)
The Girl - Ember (Vicky at Life on Willie Mae Lane)
...and an extra one as Miss Teenager liked this name for the pet:
Squidgee (Bronwyn's youngest at Queen B - Creative Me)

Thank you all for the names, it was a hard decision for Miss Teenager but I think she did well as I wrote a list and left her in a room to look through (no I didn't lock her in!)  So, congratulations to the winners - could you please email me your details (email box is at the bottom of the left column).  You will each receive a little box of goodies very soon.

So now to prepare for a little trip down memory lane this weekend and on with Blog Year 2!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
