One year ago today, I sent my very first blog post out into the universe and held my breath.

Did I really just start a blog? Am I crazy? Can I do this?

Within a few hours, I got my first comment. For that, I will always be grateful, because with just a few friendly words, Andrea gave me just the nudge I needed. I’m happy to say that we have become friends over the past year, sharing our lives, supporting and laughing with each other, admiring each other’s totally adorable kids.

That’s the thing about blogging I never expected. The REAL friendships, the connections with other mothers, the community.

THANK YOU guys for forming this community around pretty*swell. For going along for the ride! And especially for supporting me when I needed it most.

If I could hug each and every one of you today, I would.

Instead … I’ve pulled together my favorite giveaway yet.

All Etsy. ALL DAY.

Let’s get this party started!!!
