Happy Blog-iversary

I cannot believe it has been one year since I began my blogging adventure. This blog was a birthday gift to me. I thought I would have a place to send my thoughts, ideas, and discoveries about teaching into the inter-webs. I never imagined that anyone else would actually venture to this spot...but I feel blessed that others actually read and enjoy what I have to say! I didn’t think I would make it to 333 followers. I didn’t think my blog would get 175,000+ views. I never imagined that my blog would make any “must read” lists. I get so excited to see my stuff pinned out there by others when I am killing time on Pinterest. I certainly never imagined that I would be contacted to use and review products. Thank you for valuing my opinion, responding to my ramblings, and liking my ideas enough to purchase or download products that I put out.

To celebrate and thank you for being with me this year, I am having a big ol’ giveaway.
