Here is my favorite memory...

Now today is exactly 2 months since my first post as a blogger. Certainly not anywhere near a year. However, I have been so overwhelmed with the amazing support I have received in such a short time. I would have never imagined that the blogging community would be so welcoming. (What was I thinking, of course you all would be welcoming!) The day I reached 100 followers was the biggest milestone my little blog has hit so far. I really wanted to celebrate with a giveaway however I didn't want to celebrate alone. I just decided to take the plunge and reach out to some of my favorite bloggers, many of whom had never even seen my blog. I was so stunned by the results. Every single person that I contacted was more than willing to donate some fabulous prizes to my giveaway. I couldn't believe how generous these bloggers were. I was just so impressed with the kindness that there is in the blogging world. Everyone always seems to focus on the negative, but here, it is so positive and such a friendly community. I have never felt so at home in my life. I cannot wait to hit more milestones and celebrate with you all in the future. I know that I will always have your support and friendships to guide me. Here's to another great 2 months of blogging and many more to come!
Do you have a favorite memory to share? I'm sure you do! Head on over and link up! This is going to be a great one! I can't wait to read them all!
