It's Country Dreaming's Anniversary!!! :) :) One year ago today we began our journey together. Before I began this post I looked back at some of my older posts. Pretty funny stuff. Blogging is a really cool way to keep track of what happend over a year. My first post highlighted what "goals" I had in mind for Dreaming: Food to Fun, Shopping to Sharing and just some down home silliness. We've had it all and then some. I have gotten my "blog feet" under me, seen many changes in our lives, I have done OVER 200 posts (amazing), and met A LOT of amazing people from all over the the world! Who would have thought????? I even had lunch with a blog friend!! Dreaming has had two giveaways and I have won a couple too, there's been some sharing and some learning going on, I have taken MORE pictures than I ever imagined, I have also been awarded several awards (more amazing)! I think when most of us started our blog journeys, we asked ourselves "Who would read about me???" Then we start getting comments, followers, and e-mails from our new friends! AND the lightbulb goes off -- they will! But the most important thing is that I have stayed TRUE to ME. This may not be the be THE crafty blog or THE foody blog or THE decor blog. (Those specific blogs are great too don't get me wrong) but it's mine and I am am happy with what I have done over the past year!!!! Thanks to all my FOLLOWERS and READERS for all the wonderful support and great comments that I haved received. I look forward to meeting more new FOLLOWERS and posting more fun and silly stuff. If you'd like to reccomend my blog to someone --- Go for it!!! I'd love it. Again--you gals/guys are truly wonderful!!!!!
