I took this photo last year for the Superhero photography class I was in… I had to photograph a ‘heart on a path’ for a treasure hunt exercise. This photo is a perfect reflection of how I feel since boarding the blogging train that has brought me to my 1,000 blog post! Sometimes I wonder how many hours, days, weeks(?!!) I have spent in my life blogging. I wonder at times if my time would be better used elsewhere… but, for now… blogging makes me happy and that is what is important to me.
I started blogging after Autumn was born to have a way to share my photos and stories of my life as a mother with my family and friends. My blog is so valuable to me in that I have made friends with other bloggers and Moms, I have had a way to share my hobbies and interests, to vent when I need to and to have an online photo album that I can go back on to reflect on any given day from the past 4 years. This blog has gone through many times. My maternity leave with Autumn, many crafts and recipes, both kids starting school, beach and mountain vacations with the kids, my love for running, photography classes, a terrible divorce, a trip to Paris with a proposal, a new marriage, everything the kids are involved in…
I feel my life is so busy and my blog is a way for me to organize my life… to keep track of the millions of things going on in one simple place. I have so much pleasure looking back to see what we did last February, or two or even three February’s ago. So, to celebrate this busy ride I have decided I wanted to do something fun for those that do read my blog… because, I appreciate my readers! I have always wanted to do a giveaway and I thought 1,000 posts is worth celebrating! So…
As a way to celebrate 1,000 blog posts I am going to give away a $20 Target gift card to one lucky reader of my blog!
Just answer either one or both of these questions (each one is worth 1 entry!).
1. What is the ONE great thing you think you were meant to accomplish in your life?
2. What has been your favorite part of my blog? A theme, a specific post… you tell me.
Prize will be one $20 Target gift card. I will draw the lucky winner on February 21st, 2013 and the winner must respond back within two days after the drawing to receive the gift card. Only two entries per person.
