Musings of a Museum Fanatic: One Year Blogiversary! {Giveaway!}


One Year Blogiversary! {Giveaway!}

I know I'm a few days late but I finally got myself together and pulled together an amazing group of ladies for a fabulous giveaway. I can't believe that it's been a year now since I started really blogging on a regular basis. Things have changed a TON this past year. Seriously this time last year I had no clue that I would be in a full time job, doing so much with the blog and Gamma Phi and so many other things or that Kevin wouldn't be with Stache full time or we would go through another crazy him with then without and then with a job spell again. Crazy and stressful but pretty good year : )

In case you were wondering here is my first post. Supposedly I guest posted on Stephanie's blog as well that week ... although I can't seem to find it to link to you.  Someone went a little ocd cleaning crazy on her blog *gives the side eye to Stephanie*
Looking back at some of my earlier posts and what I was like last year it's crazy how much the blog has helped me to grow as myself too.  Especially when I started the 101 list (update to come this weekend!).  Accomplishing goals that one has wanted to do for so long is such an awesome and almost freeing feeling.  I can do it *Bender at the end of The Breakfast Club fist pump*!  Not just because of the list but the blog in general I feel that I've grown even more ... maybe not even grown but gotten out of my rut and started moving again.
Now to just keep moving ... or swimming which ever you prefer.  Now the fun part!  I was able to get a group of fabulous ladies together to celebrate my blogiversary and giveaway some killer prizes.  Some of them I've known for a while, I've hung out on their blog, they're hanging out on mine, newish friends and very new friends! Be sure to not just click follow but head on over to their blogs and check things out.  You won't be disappointed!
