My one year Blogaversary

I cannot believe that I started my Blog a year ago. I cannot believe how many wonderful new friends I have met through my blog. I cannot believe how much joy blogland has brought me. I cannot begin to thank all of the incredible people I have met through my blog. Thank you all for the kind comments that you have left me. (I disregarded the ugly mean comment that one anonymous person left me). To show my appreciation to everyone I am having a wonderful giveaway. One lucky person will win this beautiful Valentine Ornament that I purchased from Jen at J.Nichelle Holiday......all you have to do to have a chance at winning this is to leave a comment, and I will pick the lucky winner next Saturday.
Be sure and stop by to see Jen...she is giving away one of her beautiful birdhouses!!
Don't forget to stop by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other wonderful Pink Saturday Participants.
Have a lovely day.
xxoo Valarie

Congratulations! We started about the same time ... and all this time, I thought you were an old hand at this!

Lovely giveaway - and I'm probably foolish for posting so soon, because I've learned that numbers 1-5 rarely get chosen LOL LOL. But I'll keep my fingers and toes crossed for such a lovely prize.

Congrats, again!

What a wonderful Pink Saturday post! I just ♥ the fact that each of us shares such a variety of items - that's one reason why this event is never boring. Always something fun, new, lovely or interesting around the corner.

♫HAPPY ANNIVERSARY♫

Thanks for sharing a part of yourself today☺ Cold, gloomy day today but, as always, bright and sunny on the Pink Saturday blogs.

♫Wishing you sunshine and happiness this weekend!♫
