Blogaversary || Huge Giveaway!!!

Welcome!!  Wow, I cannot believe I have already made it this far.  One year of blogging and it's been amazing.  I had such a huge response for my blogaversary celebration that I had to delay this giveaway.  But here it is.  As you can see above, there are 17 bloggers, 18 prizes and only ONE WINNER!!!  How amazing is that?  I have 16 bloggers lined up who will be sharing about their own blogaversary or how and why they started their blog and how this blog has encouraged or inspired them so far this past year.

I will be sharing some thoughts in the coming days and weeks about my experience as a new blogger and how the blogging community has inspired me.

May I present to you the amazing ladies and what's up for grabs!!

What is your most favorite post from A Little Piece of Me? I'm a newish follower so I don't have a favorite yet.
Have you celebrated your blogaversary?
I'm not even sure how old my blog is! Haha
How did you do it or how will you celebrate? I'll probably do a giveaway. I like to celebrate things.

Destiny said...

I'm a new follower, before your awesome giveaway/blogaversary! so I'm still stalking through everything.

I am coming up on my 2 year blogaversary, however I don't really do much. Kinda sad. lol

I do have to say from what I have read I know you're a strong woman...I can relate, we all have our own battles and reading other people's lives gives you those little moments of clarity that "you're not alone" because many times I do feel like that.

Kate @ A Creative Cookie said...

Yay! Giveaway looks awesome. Are us contributors allowed to enter? :)

Meghan said...

I don't have a favorite post, I love them all!

Technically my blogaversary already passed, but I am going from when I started taking things seriously in 2/2012! I plan to have a giveaway!

Not sure if I really have a favorite, I can say I haven't hated any yet, so I would say your blog has had a positive impact at least. :)
I haven't been blogging for a year yet, but I suppose I will have a celabration of sorts when I reach a year, not sure what I will do yet though.

Brooke @ Covered in Grace said...

Salena...this looks amazing!! You did a great job!! Loving it!!!!

Brooke @ Covered in Grace said...

And p.s. Your new profile photo is gorrrrgeous!!

The Vintage Modern Wife said...

I'm a new follower but I love what I'm seeing on your blog so far!

Chelsea Lennox said...

What is your most favorite post from A Little Piece of Me? I was very interested to read about the swimming incident with your daughter and how she has moved on past it - it was so inspiring!!

Have you celebrated your blogaversary? Not yet - I've only been blogging since March :)

How did you do it or how will you celebrate? I will probably have massive giveaway...or do something crazy. Who knows! I've got some time to think about it, haha

Thanks for the giveaway!

Abbey said...

I just started following your blog...and congrats on the blogaversary! :) I am just about to come up on my one year blogaversary in about a month and was also thinking of a small giveaway! [I don't have a ton of followers at the moment, so 1- it's going to be an easy giveaway for someone to win or 2- I will have to wait a little longer, haha.] So glad to be following now! :)

The Preppy Student said...

congratulations on the blogaversary. I love your style of writing and your posts!

Wendy said...

Congrats on your anniversary! My favorite post is Letting Go. I so identified with you in that feeling of wanting to hold on but needing to let them go. Loved the quote also. Blessings!

Allison said...

What a fun way to celebrate your blogiversary! Thanks for offering this great giveaway. Sorry I didn't pull it together to participate... I have been so busy lately :)

Chelsea said...

I HAVE had a blogiversary, it was my 1 year on May 29th, but I completely didn't realize it until after the fact so I didn't get to celebrate! SO GLAD you remembered yours and are having such a lovely celebration! Congrats :) I hope you continue to stick with it, because I love your blog!

Breanna said...

Congratulations girl :) I haven't had my blog anniversary yet! It'll be in October or November and I haven't even thought about how to celebrate! Hopefully I'll come up with something fun! I love your blog and all your posts!

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

it's hard to believe i'm not at a blogavsary yet! it's weird. i feel like i've been doing it FOREVERRRRR. Thanks for always being there and supporting me. it means so much to have you as a friend. i think of you each time i wear my necklace from your shop!

Brittany TYD said...

I've never kept track of my blogaversary, so I haven't had a giveaway yet. I did have a 300 follower one recently, so I understand how much work went into this one! whew!

I just like reading about your life :). It's nice to see faith in action.

isshounoyakusoku said...

my favorite post from you is "our precious little one in his hands." i don't like but i like your words. i can't say that i know what that feels like, nor do i know if i ever will but loosing someone, especially a child, has to be heartbreaking, terrifying and tremendously painful. i do not hope to ever feel that pain and i only wish you didn't have to as well. i am a new reader, in fact, i have just heard about your blog via twitter but being from hawaii also, i am genuinely intrigued, touched by your inspirational words and amazed at the courage you have to reveal such painful memories.

just reading that one post has impacted me in such a way that is hard to describe in words. i'm in awe at your courage mostly. and i am inspired to have more courage in the days to come in my life as well! i always tell friends that no matter what they're going through, someone out there has it worse, not to undermine their feelings, but to let them know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. :) i think your courage really has impacted me most though.

i did not celebrate a blogiversary but i can't wait to (even though i have just started and have zero followers! haha! but when it does roll around, i am planning to do a giveaway. i doubt mine will be nearly as big as yours, but i will set something up for sure!

thank you so much for writing, i am happy i have found your blog! and thank you for the opportunity to win these beautiful prizes!!

Kristina Streeter said...

Not sure what my favorite post is, but I've been reading your blog since it was a new blog! So I'm so excited to see you celebrating!! :) I haven't done a blogoversary, but I've been blogging for 5.5 years, maybe I'll do one for year 6! :)

Paige said...

Oops! I accidently put that I follow Absolute Mommy via Blog lovin but it's really Hello Cotton!

Paige said...

I just started following your blog but I can't wait to read more!

I haven't celebrated a blogiversary yet but I'm so excited to!

chestnutmocha said...

We are new followers, so not sure about a favorite post so far.
We're going to celebrate our 100 followers with a giveaway! It's going to be awesome :-)

Tif said...

I have gone back and read a lot of your posts...but my favorite by far is "A call to pray for Karen"! I haven't celebrated a blogiversary yet...that will be next May...but I will be celebrating my 300th follower soon and am having a Fashionista Friday giveaway soon!

I've been with you for a while. I really appreciate all the support you've given me as a blogger over the last year, and I love reading your posts! As someone with more kids than I have (some days I think even 3 is crazy) it's very encouraging to see how well your family has turned out despite being a large one. Grateful for you!

Kimberly @ A Night Owl said...

no post in particular...but i do really enjoy following you on IG and always seeing the lovely pics of your family and your surroundings! thank you so much for the giveaway...i'm not sure what i'm going to do for my blogaversary, maybe something fun like this! xo, Kimberly

Sara said...

I am a new follower. Congrats on your first year! :)

Megan10e said...

I was really moved by the posts about Dakota's story. So scary, but what an amazing miracle!

Lynne said...

I feel badly calling it a favorite, because it was about a sad time - but your post on July 11 about the passing of your mom and your kid's grandma was so beautiful. It is true - family doesn't have to be blood relatives - and those special kinds of people need to be honored and remembered with love. sounds like you all are doing just that.

I love all the fabric flowers!!

Tara St said...

I'm a new follower...so I'll have to pick out my fav post later. My blogaversary is coming up next month and I think I'll celebrate with a giveaway.

Dawn Braun said...

I love how each and every one of your posts is truly from your heart, you pour it all out there and we can all grasp your emotion, strength and inward beauty. You are a true light of faith in the internet world with an amazing smile to boot! Thanks for sharing yourself with all of us!

no blogaversary for me..I've got too many of them (blogs that is)
but maybe a giveaway from my etsy shop with my LeroyLime one!

Kate said...

One of my favorite things about your blog is how genuine you are. You talk about everything, even the hard stuff and I admire that so much! You are really an amazing woman! :)

I have had 2 blogaversaries, but I have done nothing to celebrate them. Maybe for #3 I'll finally celebrate!
