Today is my 1 year Blogiversary! It's hard to believe I've been at this for a year. This is my 349th post, so I have posted most days for the year.
First I would like to thank you for reading. I would especially like to thank the "faithful few" (you know who you are) who comment most every day even when I don't always comment back! With working 2 jobs, watching Jerzie, and taking care of my house and gardens, I don't always have time to comment. I do usually take time to check in on you.
All and all this has been a great experience. I have met several great bloggers that I consider friends even though we've never met. I've traveled to places I never expected to see and enjoyed gardens in places I have never been.
In honor of my first year I am having a little give away. I told you yesterday how much I love Smelly Jelly. That was a set up to tell you today that I will be giving one away. The winner will have the choice of any of the four scents.
I am also including a stack of garden themed note paper.
All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post by noon on Monday. If you've been a regular reader who has never commented, now's the time to do it! I will have Jerzie draw the winner.

Happy blogaversary!! I know what you mean about finding the time to read, comment, post AND have a life - but it is always fun to come here for a visit. I'm looking forward to your next year.

Now, you knew I couldn't pass this!

Thanks for the hint!

Congratulations to you on your first year...I've been at it a year and a half now...time just flies when you are having fun!

I wonder if I will win this...what are the odds...I won Laurie and Chris's and it hangs in my bedroom where I can look at is so pretty!

Yay! Happy Blogaversary! It'll be 2 years for me in January. Can't believe it's been that long.

You're like me with the scents! I've got scented candles everywhere. My students always go to take a whiff of the candles when they enter my house. Scent is so important :)

Happy Blogaversary!
Who would have thought you could find so much to blog about?
Put my name in twice for Laurie & Chris (or would that be 3 times?)

Happy Blogiversary to you dear Jean!! I've been behind with visits also so don't feel bad if you can't leave comments all the time either:-) Today I had my whole pantry inside out but it's finally all decluttered and put back together now! lol Ooooh a giveaway...that Smelly Jelly sounds wonderful and the notepaper delightful!! Looking forward to many more of your lovely posts:-) xox

Hi Jean,
Happy Blogiversary! I've seen Jerzie grow up before our eyes :)
I can't always comment on each post, but I do try to keep up with what's new with you :)

CONGRATULATIONS!! one year and all those posts!! What an accomplishment and dedication!!

Time is always what we wish we could have more of..we all have priorities but every once in awhile we do sneak in a few moments to sit relax give back comments...and in doing so develop friendships along the way!!
I have an anniversary today also different from yours.

P.S. I have never heard of these smelly jellies!! The cider one sounds so autumn!
