A Belated Blog Anniversary

Romantic Rose
It just dawned on me today, that my blog has reached (and passed) it's one year anniversary! I cannot believe that I have been doing this blog since May 29, 2007...can you?!!! I decided to take a look back on where it all started...with my first post called "Romance is a Way of Life"...which only received two comments...and one was from me...hehe! I guess we have come a long way! I still live by the same motto, however, so some things never change! My hope is that through this past year I have helped bring a little "romance" to your life by means of this blog...and hope that I will continue to do so in even more abundance in the future.
Love Birds
I just want to say thank you to all of you who visit my little blog and care about the things that I have to say. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to do all this...does it really even matter, I find myself asking? And then I receive your warm, thoughtful and sincere comments and emails...and I am humbly reminded.
Royal Brooch
I have made so many wonderful friends here in "blogland" over the past year...and really cherish each and everyone of you! I can't picture my life without this place and all of you now! You have given me so much inspiration from your own blogs, and thoughtful words left on THANK YOU!
Beautiful White
and I pray abundant blessings to all who visit here...
In honor of this special occasion...I thought I would throw in a little giveaway as well! Anyone who leaves a comment on this post and/or my first blog post will be entered to win the teacup and saucer featured in my first post!!! Be sure to leave your email address if you don't have a blog, so that I can find you! All comments left on either blog post, from now until next Wenesday, June 11th, 2008 will be entered! Bonne chance!

I always find so much inspiration when I am here and am often amazed at your talents. I DO have those same thoughts as you sometimes, but somehow I can't imagine my life the same without my blog.
