Oh Happy Day! Today, Lilybloombooks is 3!
Another year – more fun things to discuss! I am shocked I am at this milestone so soon (it feels like yesterday I started this blog) and still here, chugging along. I mentioned in my last blogoversary post about how much I have grown – and that rings true today. I think we are constantly growing, and being able to recognize that is an amazing thing. I’ve made new friends, discovered new blogs & books all the while, having fun and standing tall. Kind of. I AM quite short.
I would like to say that I had some MAJOR THINGS going on this past year – but nothing TOO major, many low key HAPPENINGS.
→ UtopYA. I tagged along with Wendy & Danielle to crash Jessica’s place last June, which was a blast, especially when Wendy and Danielle did the whole stalking the pro football players bit.
→ Fantasy Football! I met some wonderful people – that smiled and laughed while kicking my A in our league. These ladies are lovely, hilarious and I am so so happy to have “met” them this year!
→ I created a new discussion featured aimed for bloggers! I love these – because it’s so fun getting opinions and thoughts from all angles.
→ Etsy! I started an Etsy store selling handmade book marks! Inventory is LOW but, that’s okay!
I want to say a special thanks to ALL followers/readers who have followed, commented, read my posts, chatted books, and/or just said HI. Without you, Lilybloombooks wouldn’t be where it is today. Here’s to one more year!
