Huzzah! KaelahBee.com turns One Year Old today! How exciting! I started this blog back in May of 2009 simply to share with family and friends so they could read about my adventures in NYC when I moved there last summer for my first internship at BUST. I took sick while there and the blog fell by the wayside, but I quickly picked it back up once I returned home. I never thought it would come this far. KaelahBee.com has grown exponentially and I couldn't be more excited and grateful! I'm so so excited for all of the things to come! I love being able to share my life in a form that will always be here. My children's children can come read it if they want! I'm also so thankful for each and every one of you who follow along. All 600+ public followers, and everyone on Blog Lovin', Google Reader, or just trusty ol' bookmarks in your browser! You make it all worth it :D I know blogging often seems narcisisstic and self-involved, but I love that I'm able to document my life and actually entertain people at the same time. Such a wonderful feeling! I've met SO many incredible people from this blog and I plan on having them around for a very very long time to come.
To everyone who has followed since day one, thank you! You are INCREDIBLE! And to everyone who we have picked up along the way, or even if you just stumbled across us yesterday, thank YOU and welcome! I'm so excited to have you on board!
I promised an awesome giveaway if I reached 600 followers by the blog's first birthday, and we did just that! How awesome! I will definitely be posting my giveaway soon! But for now, I'm bringing you an awesome little giveaway from one of my sponsors, Mary Sew! Mary Sew is run by Trisha, an absolutely lovely girl that I adore!
