Announcing My "One Whole Year" Event!

Ahh…cinnamon, pumpkin and crunchy leaves…this time of year will forever remind me of those final sweet weeks of my first pregnancy! And now, we’re getting ready to celebrate a FIRST BIRTHDAY!

I had no idea what I was in for. I mean, I thought I did, but I wasn’t even close. I’ve learned SO much since then, just shy of a year ago, and I am beyond grateful for the online community of helpful friends and encouraging, supportive mamas that have been there through it all!

OK, so maybe I don’t personally know you all. But that doesn’t lessen how much I value you…not even a little bit. So, to say thank you, I’m planning a fun blog celebration to celebrate One Whole Year!

One Whole Year of getting to know my funny little man…

One Whole Year of getting to know myself as a mommy…

and One Whole Year of breastfeeding! I didn’t know if I could do it, and here we are. 12 months. Hands down, the biggest victory I’ve ever felt! I was proud when I graduated from college, but this is a whole different ballgame…

I can’t give away too many details just yet, but I can tell you this: There will be a great prize package of gifts for one lucky mama! (or mama-to-be, or even someone who wants to gift a special mama!)

(Hint, hint!! Gifts include something soft, something “fluffy” and something to make your teething baby feel “inspired!”)

I will announce the prize package formally on Nov. 11th (not my son’s actual birthday–that’s for him.) I’ve decided to celebrate here on the blog on what was my due date!)

After I announce the package, the entry period will last through Nov. 18th. During that time, look for “Sponsor Spotlights” where you can earn extra entries, learn about some great companies, and even find some valuable discounts just for joining in the fun!

Don’t worry–entry methods will be limited, and very easy.
