One Year Blog Anniversary & Giveaways!

My Freshly Brewed Life :: One Year Blog Anniversary and Week of Giveaways
This month, I am celebrating one year of blogging.  I actually started blogging in March of last year, but I never really got it off the ground.  I came over to Blogger in July, met all of my wonderful followers and found some fabulous blogs to read, so I want to celebrate YOU, my amazing followers!  I cannot tell you how humbled and honored I am that you choose to read my little blog. I know your time is valuable, and there are some fantastic blogs out there. I am so privileged that I get to have this cyber relationship with each of you.  My heart is that you are encouraged and strengthened by what the Lord gives me to share, and that I bring a little ray of sunshine into your lives!

All next week (July 26th through July 30th), you will have a chance to win some wonderful prizes.   I guarantee you will love them!  Make sure you come back here beginning Monday to enter to win.  All you have to do to enter is 

  1. Follow my Blog (Mandatory)
  2. Comment on my post each day during the week (extra Entry)
  3. Place my “Giveaway button” on your sidebar (extra entry).

I will list the prize you are entering to win in my post.  Remember, that entire week will be dedicated to YOU, my blog readers!  You are all so special to me.


Blessings!

    I am so glad that you entered the wonderful world of blogging. Otherwise, I wouldn't have met you and that would be a loss for me. I'm really amazed at how quickly you've picked this up. I have to say it took me much longer through trial and error.

    But I'd be honored to post your giveaway link on Heart Choices and I will encourage others to come and meet you Barbie. They certainly won't be disappointed.

    Love you,
