Happy 1st birthday Strength and Sunshine! Que balloons, fireworks, horns, and general fanfare… I just want to cry! My little blog baby is now 1 year old! O how the time has flown by. From the first post to this post and all the 263 in between. My o my how this little blog has grown. I am so forever grateful that I finally took that step and got serious about starting my own blog. Thinking back now to all that I could have accomplished if I hadn’t gets completely trumped by what I have accomplished, all because of SAS.
Strength and Sunshine is still a baby blog. It hasn’t grown like some other blogs do in their first year or even 6 months, but it has grown enough for me and has grown with me. It’s my little space to share my recipes, my love for yoga and fitness, living a crazy gluten-free allergy filled life, to share products I love (honestly), random happenings and thoughts that pop up in my head and I write down all in a blog post, and soon to be musings from a DC college student. I don’t know where this blog will take me next or how it will transform in its next year of life, but I know I do not want to stop anytime soon. I have been given some amazing opportunities, been able to connect with so many amazing people, work with fabulous brands, companies, and blogging networks.
And I want to thank you most off all. To those of you who comment directly or connect with me via Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, and Instagram, you have no idea how much it means to be and the joy it brings to my day. Even if you are a silent-stalker (I say this with the most love), I thank you too, because that is the whole point of blogging. To Share! If I didn’t want to share, well then I would just keep a daily journal; that’s what blogging is if there is no connection. But I have a blog and I get to share it with you, read all your blogs, and even just know that some are coming to read and enjoy on their own.
How about we take a trip down memory lane and re-read some old posts? How about the top 3 viewed posts on the blog that you all have loved first! (They all have to do with food…and I am a-okay with that ;))
All good choices indeed! Now for my top 3 favorite posts…
2. Vanilla Purple Sweet Potato Pancakes (a.k.a PSPcakes…how I miss them so!)
And to thank you all for stopping by and reading, I have a little giveaway for you all! By now most of you know I am the giveaway-entering-queen (just ask Caitlin, she knows!). Really they are so fun and enter almost everyone. So now I am giving you a chance to enter one here on the SAS to show my love! I’ll put together a special Strength and Sunshine Birthday prize box to one lucky beautiful reader! What is in it will be a surprise…but you can rest assured it will be foodie related 😉
Just use the Rafflecopter link above to enter (U.S. only please! Even though I love you all!). I will announce the winner on next weeks Friday Finisher (July 4th…how can it almost be July 4th already!?)
I have no idea where this blog will be in the next month, then next year, but I thank you for following and being a part of this journey with me. I wish you all the Strength and Sunshine that is out there to be had. I love this community and I’m proud to call myself the blogger of Strength and Sunshine.
