Cheers to 5 Years! It’s My Blogiversary!!

In many ways this is just another typical Monday, but in one way it’s of particular significance to me.

You see, 5 years ago today, on June 5, 2012, I published my first blog post, making this my blogiversary!!

5 Years!! I can hardly believe it!!

I knew this day was coming and originally had ideas of grandeur. Perhaps I’d throw a party, coordinate a mega-giveaway, or in the very least get one of those big ole gold balloons!☺️

Alas, the day snuck up on me and I am woefully unprepared. I’m honestly a bit disappointed in myself for my lack of planning, but today is special nonetheless. 

With that in mind, I thought I’d share some fun facts with you about how my little space on the internet came to be, some things that I’ve learned, and more!

Here we go!

A Sweet Chocolate Treat + Walmart Giveaway!

I know everyone says it, but I really do have the best mom in the world. I’m so happy we were able to celebrate Mother’s Day together, and although circumstances have been pretty hectic lately, I wanted to make sure I showed her how much I love and appreciate her. 

 

In addition to spending time with my mom, her not-so-subtle hints were duly noted, and we wanted to get her exactly what she wanted. While she definitely appreciated the clothes and accessories she received, I wanted to make sure she had a special sweet treat too! You have to include something yummy, ya know?

So I added MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy to her bag, and finally her gift was complete!

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment + Giveaway!

I have received these tickets from Feld Entertainment, Inc in exchange for a review. As always, I will only share my honest opinion with you!

We are big fans of Disney in this house, and our trip to Disney World a couple years ago was incredible! Unfortunately, we don’t have another trip planned anytime soon, but I love all of their traveling shows!

It’s so nice to be able to experience some of the magic in you’re own backyard, which is why I’m super excited to take my girls to see Disney on Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment!

What Motherhood Means To…Beth

Motherhood to me is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my life. I mother with my whole heart and fiercely try to remember the gifts that have been placed in my life.

Our journey into motherhood was not the easiest, yet, without making light of what we went through, I now understand why all the events needed to fall the way they did. It has given me a stronger purpose to be their mom.
