I had no idea how much blogging would come to mean to me when I typed y first post. It began as a way to share anectdotes and pictures with distant family and friends, before we all joined facebook. Then I started meeting new bloggers, joining the cloth diapering community, and reviewing and giving away products on my blog.
Today, "blogger" is one of the ways I describe myself. It's kept me writing, helped me maintain my sanity, and provided amazing perpective and clarity. I look forward to blogging and wish I had time to write more. Your comments inspire me. I can't tell you how much it means to have readers interact with me on my blog and companies trust me to share their products!
I want to celebrate 500 followers with you! What better way to express my gratitude than a giveaway from one of my very favorite designers, Maggie of Maxwell Designs? I met Maggie through blogging and I think she is a wonderful, creative person with extraordinary taste and I'm proud to call her my friend. It only seems fitting to give away something from a friend I met through blogging!
I purchased this gorgeous Wallet Clutch in Amy Butler Aqua to give away to one lucky reader once my blog reaches 500 GFC followers! Maggie also suprised me by offering to give away a little something extra with the wallet to help me celebrate.
This amazing clutch is lined with PUL, so it can be used as a designer wipes and diaper case, but it is lovely and versatile enough to be used as a clutch.
