My 1st Blog Anniversary

Good morning to you! I can't believe today marks a year that I've been writing and sharing with each of you. The best part of this year has been sharing myself, my passions, struggles, love for all things fashionable as I've grown into a better me. It has been an amazing year finding my writing voice again. I've kept a prayer journal for many years. I studied creative writing in college and enjoyed writing papers. I still do although most of them have an academic focus. 

When I first begin blogging, I wasn't sure that anyone would read it since I wasn't the typical single mom, divorced or widowed. At times I'm still not sure that anyone is really reading even after viewing the stats. Yet, I continue to write in hopes that someone is encouraged. 

What was most important to me about this blog, being able to write was having an outlet to release the stresses that come with being a semi superwoman, to honor those who support me and the kid and to showcase the joys that come from knowing GOD and trusting that the plan is one of peace & joy.

I'm really thankful for all of you who visit my blog, read and comment.  It really means alot to me and is very much appreciated! A divamomsjourney would not be the same without you. I hope you continue to come back time and time again as I journey into the next phase of life, of blogging, raising KT and graduate school. 

In honor of this occasion, I'd like to do my first blog giveaway to a parent. The PRIZE is this book: 

      1. Leave a comment on the post with the following:
             Share your child(ren)'s favorite picture book  
             and help me celebrate by telling me what you enjoy  
             about my blog.
     2. You must be a subscriber to my blog.

The contest is open to parents ONLY! I will only ship within the United States. Sorry I'm on a single mom budget :)

Giveaway closes Tuesday, March 1st at 11:59 PM EST. 
I will put all names in a hat and have KT pick the winner. 


Good luck!
