Blog 1 Year Anniversary!

It's a PARTY! :)

Today marks ONE year since the very first post went live. If you're weren't hanging out with us then, you can read it here. Ever since then I've shared with you all about our journey to become debt free, we've made all sorts of homemade things together, I've shared with you the ups & downs of living on a budget and sorts of odds and ends from this past year! ;) Most importantly, we've shared life together. I've enjoyed having your support and encouragement along the way and I hope you've found some inspiration for your own life too. 

Thanks for coming by and checking in each and every day. I'm honored to have you along for the ride! 

Now, what's a party without gifts, right?! :) Three lucky followers will be getting the gifts this time! A good blog is made far greater by it's fabulous readers. You deserve to be celebrated because you are a lovely community of friends. 

So, here's how it'll work. Like I promised before, there will be special followers that will be honored on here occasionally. Today is the first "randomly selected date".  My two dear friends, who have followed from the very beginning deserve a special treat, don't you think? Yes, indeed they do.

Now, remember girls, there is free wifi at all Starbucks locations, so be sure to check in with us and tell us what you enjoyed! :)

The first is my bestie from high school, Sarah. You can read all about her and her coolness here. ;)

The second one will be my friend and roommate from college, Jessie

  1. I am a follower! My favorite post is "Paid in Full", a short post but a very significant post. Seeing you pay off Sallie Mae encouraged me and my family that we can pay off my, similar in amount, student loan. I can't wait to have a post like "Paid in Full"!

  2. Big congrats on your one year anniversary!! I'm not entering the contest, I just wanted to say congrats and wish you another year of such wonderful and inspiring posts. :)

  3. Thank you!! Yes, a paid in full post is always a fun one to write! ;) I hope you'll be able to write that one soon. We still have some debt, but we are down to our last loan and we're in the single-digits, yay!!

    Deon, thanks for your kindness!!

  4. Well, what a lovely surprise I find reading here!!!! I never win anything! You really didn't have to do that, ya know...
    Thank you dear. Time sure flies. Your blog has come a long way and I know will continue to. Much love to a good friend.
