Blogoversary Thoughts & Giveaway

Happy Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe!

And, Happy Blogoversary to this here corner o' the web!

Five years ago, completely oblivious to the fact that this is a pretty awesome Feast Day, I started blogging. I was really Catholic in name only and headed down a pretty scary path. How things change....

I'm still a little surprised that there is anything here after that first post. I'm even more surprised at *what* is here. I didn't start blogging to document our "reversion" and I didn't start blogging to share intimate details of my life with the world and that's all here. I thought I'd post about football games and other nonsense that goes on in our life with a photo here and there of our furbabies, and well, that's here too. I guess I was half-right :).

I love my little *spot* on the web and I am so grateful to all of you for being a part of it. Whether you comment regularly, occasionally, or never, your presence here is a blessing to me and I am thankful for you! And to show my gratitude, as I did a couple of years ago, I have a fun give-away. Also like a couple of years ago, it's probably not on your Christmas list, but it's very "me" and I think it *should* be on everyone's Christmas list :) and I hope that when putting on a tree each year, the winner knows of the gratitude and love that is behind it for all of the prayers and support that I've received in this space.



So, if you'd like to win, all you have to do to enter is comment :). And since there are 2, I'll pick 2 winners. The first winner can pick whether they want gold or blue. I'll leave the comments open until Monday afternoon some time and then pick Monday evening.

Good luck and thank-you!!!

  1. I'm grateful for you and your blog :-) And I'd love to have a little piece of West Virginia on our tree each year! The retreat changed our lives ... And having that reminder of you and WV each year would bring a smile to our faces :-)

  11. Oh yay! I want to enter! WVU is my 2nd favorite Big 12 school :)

    Since you and I would pretty much never have known each other existed without your blog (and without Jessica's!) I am extremely grateful that you started blogging. :)

  13. Oh, please, me oh me! :D
    Your blog and heart to us is always the true gift, honestly!
    But I would be SO honored to have a memento of YOU on our tree! And I grew up loving WVU (since my fam is from WV and all) - and I'm MAD they aren't in the ACC! But I'll always love and cheer them on...
    and because of our journeys... I will always love and cheer YOU on, Rebecca!
    What 1/2 marathon are you doing in Pittsburgh, btw?!
    Hugs and love always and always!
