Today, this here blog is three years old. I seriously can't believe that I've been in this space for so long. I think I write this every year, but really, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I started this thing. I barely knew what a blog was. I had no idea that there was such a strong crafty-blog community. I certainly had no idea what amazing friends I would make because of this space. Or that my interest in photography would be sparked and take me in a whole new direction.
I know it might sound silly, but I really think that my life is better because of this space and what it's brought me (um, that would be you all!). I remember three years ago, sitting on our old dingy couch in the living room in our old apartment. I was trying to promote my etsy shop (shop...what shop? oh right) and I sort of spontaneously decided I should have a blog. I really didn't even know what that entailed and I did absolutely no research before just signing up. Later, I was talking to my mom and I said, "so, yeah, I started a blog?". I said this last year too, but I really love the fact that I began writing here so soon after moving to Minneapolis because it really gives me such a wonderful way to look back on my time here so far. Like a scrapbook, but better.
So, in honor of this little anniversary, I'm going to do a little giveaway. I haven't done one in a while, and frankly, I have no idea what I'll be giving away, so you'll just have to trust me that it's going to be good. Leave a comment here the end of the weekend, and tell something little (or big!) that's making you happy these days. And if you want to tell me your favorite thing about this blog, you can feel free to do that too. I know why I hang on to this space, but it's always nice to hear why you all do too. I'll pick a lucky winner on Monday!
But seriously, thank you all for being here, for reading my words and supporting my projects and commenting. If it weren't for you, well, who knows where I'd be.
