WOW! Two Year Blog Anniversary and a Giveaway!

Hi There Lovelies ♥

Amazing! I can’t believe I’ve actually been blogging for whole two years!!! Last Friday I was having a conversation with my BFF and the amount of time I’ve been blogging came up and she gave me the statistics on the percentage of bloggers that quit within the first 6 months. I didn’t care to look it up, but I’m sure she’s right.

If you know anything about me, I’m about as flaky as can be. I know flaky sounds like such a horrible thing to be, but I promise it’s only with my own things. I will be excited about something but procrastination sets in and I’m done.  I do tend to work a little better (just a little) when I have a deadline.  I almost always complete things when I absolutely have no other choice. You see my little disclaimers after each of these sentences… just keeping my procrastinator self safe.

I am hoping to change this about myself. I know a lot of us suffer from it, so I know I’m in good company. I started working with a Bullet Journal in the hopes I’ll kick this and some other annoying habits I’ve procured over the years to the curb. I even wrote a blog post about it, which you can read here and I’ll also be writing a lot more about how I’ve incorporated it into my life. So stay tuned for that.

My procrastination is something I am not proud of but I openly talk about.  I have been and tried countless activities and without fail, I end up quitting. Anything from MLM’s different hobbies (If I gave you a list of the things I’ve wanted to do, you’d laugh) those things include soap making, jewelry making, song writing, poetry… Listen, I’m just all over the place.

Having a 2 year anniversary (Blogiversary) in anything is a major accomplishment for me. Thank you to all of you who stuck around. Thanks to those that come back to read each of my blog posts, I also want to thank the haters that try to bring me down, you are just motivation to keep going. Glad you’re here too.

To celebrate my little victory I’ll be giving away a $25 gift card to Amazon (totally my favorite place to shop) of course, and I’m totally not kidding. If you’re not a Amazon Prime member, sign up using my affiliate link (Free Trial located on the right sidebar). You’ll be glad you did.  I love free 2 day shipping.

Good luck! May the odds be ever in your favor. (Can you tell I was watching The Hunger Games last night?)

Thanks for reading!!
