2 Year Blogiversary & a Giveaway

Today marks my second Blogiversary!  I started this little space two years ago when I was bored out of my mind recovering from surgery and I never could have imagined what it would grow to become and how much I would grow to love blogging.  To celebrate I have decided to rebrand and rename my blog The Blush Blonde.  However, I think that I'm most excited that I finally purchased my own domain,  My blog has evolved so much over these last two years and I have been thinking about changing the name for a while so that it was more representative of what this has become, I figured there was no better day then my Blogiversary to do my relaunch!

There are so many people that I need to thank for helping me on this crazy journey these last two years.  Thank you to my friends and family for always being up to help me with anything I need (and not just when it comes to blogging!).  Thank you to all of the people I have met through blogging for your friendship, kindness and help.  Thank you to the bloggers who I look up to and admire for helping to constantly keep me inspired.  Lastly, thank you to everyone who has ever come to visit this space, the fact that you've taken the time out of your day to come here and read what I have to say means the world to me.
