Three Years Blogging and a Giveaway

Charlotte@Living Well on the Cheap  —  February 28, 2014 — 18 Comments

Three years ago today I started this little blog. The older I get the faster time goes by and I can’t believe that I’ve been blogging here for longer than I was in grad school, for longer than I was with my college boyfriend, and for more than twice as long as it would take me to walk around the Earth (if I could walk on water).┬áTo say that writing here has been a positive experience for me would be an understatement. I dare say it’s been lifechanging. My blog serves as a creative outlet, as a means of connecting with others, and as something I can rely on even when other things in my life are chaotic. It gave a purpose to my free time during a very stressful time in my career and has continued to be a haven of peace and positivity. I really feel like the words to describe my gratitude escape me, so allow me to quote a cultural treasure:

Thank you for being a friend

To thank you all for being such a positive force in my life I’d like to offer the only thing I really have to give: stuff from my shop. Enter the giveaway below to win any single item of your choosing, and even if you don’t win you can use the code THANKYOU to get 40% off. Both the code and the giveaway close at midnight on Monday March 3rd so don’t dawdle! Thanks again, my friends. You’re the best.

To enter, either like my page on facebook or leave a comment telling me something you do that brings you joy every day, then complete your entry using the Rafflecopter widget below.

  1. HAPPY Bloggy anniversary! I take care of my son every day…and I have known no greater joy in my life. THANK YOU

  2. Congrats and Happy Blogiversary!

  3. Congrats! I always make my bed every morning. Starts the day off right and gives me a minute to be thankful for what’s to come!

  4. I really love your blog–you encourage me to try things that are a little beyond my comfort zone. Something I try to do everyday is look outside my windows toward the mountains and just enjoy them. Happy Blogiversary!

  5. Congrats on three years of blogging! I have quickly realized that blogging is something that brings me joy, because it’s something that I do for me. Being a mom is pretty rad as well!

  6. Three high fives to you! I look forward every day to my bedtime peanut butter and jelly sandwich, enjoyed alone, with a side of silence ;)

  7. The most peaceful, joyous time of my day is holding my kids before bedtime while we pray and sing!

  8. Naps bring me joy.

  9. Congrats! The thing that brings me joy is relaxing in a warm bath every single night before bed. And I listen to my honeymoon playlist. :)

  10. Enjoying a cup of coffee in my quiet, clean kitchen is the best way for me to start my day before the family wakes up and the craziness begins!

  11. I forgot to say what brings me joy. Umm…chocolate? too easy?

  12. Happy Blogiversary! My baby blog died.

  13. Congrats!!! I play with my dog everyday and he brings me great joy because even though he’s old, blind, and diabetic, he’s still fearless and fiesty.

  14. Yay happy anniversary!

  15. Happy three years. It has been fun getting to know you, my second cousin. I don’t really know what brings me joy. I just have it. I love my husband and family, my pets, and my Grandchildren especially. I feel blessed on a daily basis.

    I love your inspiring and passionate blog. My daily ritual is each night as I go to bed I write a to do list to clear my head then then give myself a hand massage with an aromatherapy hand cream…..sends me off to sleep peacefully.

  17. Happy Blogiversary!
